Inter Milan vs Napoli
Italy – Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 28 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
I Nerazzurri have already qualified for the Champions League, and Juve had confirmed their ninth league title in a row the last Sunday. Likely, Antonio Conte’s men could let out a sigh of relief now, and play with relaxed minds.
They could still go after a runner-up finish, which would definitely help their mindsets in the title-race the next campaign – but they surely have nothing to lose now.
Almost same is the case for Gli Azzurri. They are chasing a top-six finish as of now, but their triumph in the Coppa Italia have afforded them a ticket to the Europa League. It’s a doubt now whether they would overexert themselves now, especially with the Champions League around the corner.
Considering the offensive talent on both rosters, and the drop in the level of intensity due to qualifications to their respective European tournaments already being confirmed – expect both teams to score goals this Tuesday.
Inter Milan vs Napoli: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest clash had ended in a 1-1 draw.

- Since 2011, either team has secured a total of three victories at this stadium.
Inter Milan vs Napoli: Prediction
Antonio Conte’s men recorded a 0-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Genoa. Former Manchester United stars Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku scored the goals for the victors.
In the meanwhile, Gennaro Gattuso’s men registered a 2-0 victory at home over Sassuolo. They were also unbeaten in 17 of their last 20 overall games, and in the process, they had gone invincible against the likes of Lazio, Juventus, Barcelona etc.
Going on, I Nerazzurri are unbeaten in their past six overall fixtures, and also remained so in 13 of their previous 15 match-ups. Moreover, they had also scored two or more goals in seven of their former ten appearances at this venue.
By the looks of things, expect both teams to find the back of the net at least once in the ninety minutes.
However, Conte’s men are placed second in the table at the moment, while their counterparts are just seventh. The former also do have lost just thrice at home in h2h clashes since 1994. And keep note that they had also recorded an eight-fixture winning run at this stadium in the process against this rival.
Likely, expect Inter to win at least one half of the game.
