Napoli vs Internazionale Preview

Napoli vs Internazionale

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio San Paolo

Date: 21st October 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

This is the biggest game in the Italian Serie A this season so far and could be the turning point for the winner as these two teams and currently first and second in the league table.

Napoli remains the only team in Europe’s top five leagues that still has a 100% record this season and they look likely to prioritise winning the league over Champions League this season.

They won their last league game away at AS Roma 0-1 – a result that showed everyone that they are prepared to fight it out for the title.

They also earned a lot of praise for how they played Pep Guardiola’s team in the Champions League as a Dries Mertens penalty saved by Ederson stopped them from sharing the points in that game.

This game will be a major test and a win here would send the right signal to their fellow title challengers that they are ready to go all the way.

Napoli have won at Roma and Lazio already this season – two of the toughest grounds to win at.

Inter Milan will be banking of Mauro Icardi to continue his fine form in front of goal after his hat trick performance in the Milan derby last time out.  He has scored 9 goals already.

Inter have also scored in all of their fixtures so far and this game has the making of a thrilling encounter with both sides capable of outscoring the other.

Inter have lost three of the last 5 meetings between these sides.
