Inter Milan vs Napoli Prediction & Match Preview

Inter Milan vs Napoli
Italy Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 16 December 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Giuseppe Meazza Stadium, Milan.

Inter sit 2nd and just three points behind pace-setters AC Milan after 11 games played in Serie A and they host Napoli for their derby clash on Wednesday looking for their fifth league win in a row. Antonio Conte’s men struggled in the Champions League and now turn attention to the domestic competitions, which could mean a different mindset at this point.

Nerazzurri have been scoring numbers of goals and have a lot to build on in that sense. They beat Cagliari (1-3) last time out but were forced into looking for a late comeback once again, as Barella, D’Ambrosio, and Lukaku all found the net in the final quarter of an hour.

Napoli sit just a point behind and come into the match after a narrow 2-1 win over Sampdoria, completing a second-half comeback of their own. They also garnered a winning streak in Serie A, after beating Roma (4-0) and Crotone (0-4) with great confidence in late November and early December, respectively. We now expect a very tough challenge and a game tough to call until the final whistle.

Inter Milan vs Napoli Head-to-head

  • Inter beat Napoli (2-0) as the sides last met in late July 2020.
  • Napoli made their way past Inter (2-1 on aggregate) in Coppa Italia earlier in the year.
  • Partenopei last beat Inter Milan in Serie A back in May 2019, when Zielinski, Mertens, and Fabian Ruiz (x2) all found the net before Icardi’s penalty-kick consolation goal.

Inter Milan vs Napoli Prediction

We now expect a very exciting occasion in Milan but we’ll stick our necks out for the sides to share the spoils. We’ll go for a Draw priced at 3.60 despite hopes to see goals, which ultimately comes off as the best value in the market with both sides boasting great team spirits of recent.

That being said, we expect goals and going for a YES on Both teams to score feels like buying money for old rope at 1.57. We have seen goals on both ends in three of both sides’ last four outings across competitions, which serves as further evidence for such a bet if that’s needed at all.
