Napoli vs Inter Milan
Date: Thursday, 5 March 2020
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Stadio San Paolo, Napoli
According to the latest news, Coppa Italia semi-final matches are not going to be postponed like the majority of Serie A clashes due to corona virus outbreak. Napoli have surprised everyone by beating Inter Milan in the first leg match 1-0, so they are huge favorites to earn a spot in the finals.
Underestimating Neroazzurri would be a huge mistake though. Antonio Conte is known for having great results when it comes to cup and European competitions, so surely his team is not going to visit Naples with a white flag.
Napoli vs Inter Milan Head-to-head
Five out of the last seven head to head matches between these opponents have ended Under 2.5 goals FT, mostly being decided by one single goal.
The first match was decided by beautiful goal scored by Fabian Ruiz in the second half at Guiseppe Meazza. Inter had 13 shots in that game but failed to beat Ospina.
Napoli’s fans have been waiting for home win against Inter Milan since 2016.
Napoli vs Inter Milan Prediction
Gennaro Gattuso has done tremendous work with Napoli in February. The only defeat came against Lecce at this stadium. Besides that, Napoli achieved five victories in six games, beating Cagliari, Brescia, Torino and Sampdoria.
Dries Mertens’ magic in the UEFA Champions League playoff duel against Barcelona was not enough to gain some advantage before the trip to Spain. The first leg match ended without a winner 1-1 FT.
Napoli played three games in Coppa Italia this season. They didn’t concede one single goal, and all encounters have ended Under 2.5 FT.
Inter Milan have successfully recovered from two back-to-back losses to Napoli and Lazio. They are still in an active title race in Serie A and trying to reach Europa League final stages.
Is there a lot of room to worry about cup? We don’t think so.
It wouldn’t be the end of world for Inter if they get eliminated here, while Coppa Italia is the best chance to win a trophy this season for Napoli.
We are backing home win at huge 2.55 price. As for the alternative, Napoli to keep a clean sheet at 3.50 is a must take value bet, backed with small stake of course.
