Inter vs Napoli prediction comes before the semi-final of Coppa Italia. This match will be played on Wednesday, February 12, at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan, Italy. In this match preview, you will get the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two sides.
Inter vs Napoli Betting Tips
Inter and Napoli meet once again after the two played a Serie A game in January. In that match, Inter won by 3:1 at San Paolo in Naples, prolonging the bad run of Napoli. Things have changed, however, since then. At the moment, Napoli don’t look as bad as they did at the start of the year.
The problem is that they’re coming into this game after losing to Lecce in Serie A on Sunday. Before that, they won three matches in a row, two in the league and one in the cup. The cup game they won was against Lazio, which got Napoli to the semi-final.
Their hopes are pretty high when it comes to Coppa Italia, one of the reasons being the fact that Inter don’t seem too fired up for this competition. The thing with Inter this season is that they have set their eyes on the title of Serie A. They are leading a two-horse race with Juventus for that trophy.
Four days after the game with Napoli in the cup, Inter are playing against Lazio in the league. And that match is much more important to them. Right now, Inter have the same number of points as Juventus in the league, which is why they’re going to be super-motivated to beat Lazio. The same doesn’t apply for their game with Napoli. And that’s exactly what Napoli are planning to take advantage of.
Another good news for Napoli is the fact that their injury problems are almost completely over. The biggest news is that their best defender, Kalidou Koulibaly is fit and ready to play. If the manager picks him for the game, it’s going to be his second match after an injury that kept him sidelined since mid-December.
Similarly to Napoli, Inter is also almost completely injury-free. Still, this doesn’t mean their manager is going to pick the very best eleven for this clash. Instead, we will probably see some fresh faces in the team.

Napoli have been dreadful this season, especially in the first part of the season. They did slip in the previous game they played, but that defeat should not shake them up too seriously. Instead, they will probably be very motivated to get a good result on Wednesday evening.
