Napoli vs Inter Milan Match Preview
The perfect start to Napoli’s season will be on the line when Serie A table toppers take on the impressive Inter Milan side on Saturday night at the Stadio San Paolo.
It is no surprise that Napoli are the only team in Europe’s six major leagues to have a 100% record at this stage of the season. Maurizio Sarri’s side has been incredibly efficient so far raising hopes of domestic glory in Naples. Having already won against Roma and Lazio, it looks like Napoli are fine-tuned to take on the best in Italy. The midweek 2-1 loss to Manchester City in the Champions League is a blip but everyone knows that Napoli have put their European hopes on the back burner for the time being. Having already scored 26 goals so far this season – a little over two goals per match – Napoli are showing just why they have won 13 matches in the Serie A, a run that extends to last season.
But, make no mistake, this Inter Milan side is not here to make up numbers. Luciano Spalletti’s men are trying their best to regain old glory and the absence in European competitions is surely helping them. The Nerazzurri have picked up 22 points from eight games and sit just two points off Napoli. Inter scored in all the matches so far and only a 1-1 draw at Bologna is their lone blot. Having already gone past Roma and AC Milan in the league, Inter Milan feel that they are peaking at the right time. Undoubtedly, this is their biggest test of credentials and a win here will pitchfork the visitors straight into the title mix. Inter had managed to beat city rivals AC Milan 3-2 last week and they will be fully motivated to make another good result.

Napoli vs Inter Milan Predictions
Both sides are the best defending units of Serie A – together with Roma – this season, shipping just five goals each. Inter need to be at its best to keep the free-scoring Napoli under check but back Spalletti’s men to find the formation to do just that. Don’t be surprised if the visitors win here but any win could be by a very minor margin. Coming to individual players, who better than Icardi to continue his goal scoring run! The Argentine is scoring some vital goals for the visitors and this weekend could witness another similar story.
