Napoli vs Inter Milan
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 19th May 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Stadio San Paolo (Naples).
Napoli has already qualified for the Champions League and can relax for the remaining two match-days. But they are no such squad. In recent times, only Napoli has been able to mount a reasonable challenge against Juventus, and they are determined to not let the Old Lady run away with a ninth straight league crown.
As of now, Napoli has 76 points on the board. Finishing their league campaign strong, considering their penultimate trial is against Inter, and touching the 80-points mark would be a huge confidence boost for them.
A win in this tie would secure the coveted Champions League ticket for Inter, and after all the hard work they have put in during this season, the team deserves it. The team has a four-point cushion to make sure of a top-four finish and can afford to lose this tie, provided they win the last game in their league campaign, but the team would want to finish off in style.
Napoli vs Inter Milan Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last three games produced one goal in total.

- Inter has never recorded a league win at this stadium.
- The last time these two met at this venue, the game ended in a goalless draw.
Napoli vs Inter Milan Prediction
Both these teams can be termed as two of the best in Italy. And it’s a matter of pride and honor for these two to perform well against each other. Napoli is a bit relaxed as they have already ensured a Champions League berth, but the season is about to end, and they are at home. For sure the team will want to present their fans with an unforgettable night. Expect strong intent from the home team.
Regarding Inter, they are still after the CL ticket. AC Milan, in the 5th spot, has an easy fixture this Sunday, and this forced Inter to give a good showing against Napoli, or else they risk being under pressure for the final match-day. Expect Inter to come on strong as well.
As such, we can count on these two to produce a strong, competitive tie. Keeping in line with the trend, expect good defensive outings from the respective back lines. Moreover, goals have been scarce whenever these two locked horns recently. The last three such games saw just one goal in total, and the last seven in a row failed to have both on the scorecard together.
A goalless first half is on the cards this Sunday.
