Internazionale vs Napoli Preview

Internazionale vs Napoli

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio Giuseppe Meazza

Date: 11th March 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Napoli are now facing the prospect of losing the title to Juventus after having their lead cut to just one point with Juve having a game in hand.

Although Inter Milan are not in the best of form at the moment, the Naples side will need to be at their best to get all three points especially considering how Inter battled to a goalless draw in the reverse fixture.

Inter are struggling at the moment after falling out of the top two and they are struggling to qualify for the Champions League next season at present.

Mauro Icardi has been failing to score as easily before and it will be interesting to see if Inter can deal Napoli’s title hopes another blow.

Inter’s defence is doing a good job especially at home as they have recorded a clean sheet in 50% of their matches at home this season, and they have conceded less than 0.8 goals per home game so far.

Napoli has also conceded the least amount of goals in the league this season, so this game could be a tight one.

Napoli are unbeaten in 26 away games – they have recorded a clean sheet in 6 of their last 7 away games, and they have won their last 5 away games on the bounce without conceding a goal.

While Icardi is struggling for form, Dries Mertens is in top form as he has netted in his last 7 games for Napoli taking his season’s tally to 17 goals and he wil be looking to get on the score sheet here again.
