Napoli vs Inter prediction comes before the 18th Serie A round matchup. This match will be played on Monday, January 6, at Stadio San Paolo in Naples, Italy. In this match preview, we will provide you with the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these teams.
Napoli vs Inter Betting Tips
Inter are at the very top of the table ahead of Round 18. The trouble is that they have the same number of points as Juventus, meaning that the title race is pretty much ongoing. This means that in order to stay in the race, Inter need to do well in big matches like the one against Napoli.
Napoli aren’t doing too well this season and for them, the title race is long gone. They’re in the eight spot at the moment, with only 24 points, compared to 42 points that Inter have. They also had their fair share of problems in the locker-room, with their manager Carlo Ancelotti getting sacked a few weeks ago.
Napoli’s new manager is Gennaro Gattuso and with him at the helm, they look decent, although their form needs improvement. They won only one game in the last five Serie A rounds, which just isn’t enough if they want to compete for a place in Europe.
The biggest problem with Napoli at the moment is that they have several injured players, especially in defense. Kalidou Koulibaly is out which can pose serious problems to this team against Inter. This goes especially knowing that Inter are one of the highest-scoring teams in the league.
Inter don’t have too big injury worries. What’s got to worry them, though, is that they’re playing on Napoli’s turf. Stadio San Paolo is the place where Inter are without a Serie A win in this century. Most of their duels in Naples were home wins.
Speaking of Napoli’s home performances, they haven’t been too impressive this season. In fact, this team has won only three matches out of possible eight that were played on their stadium. And in the last four home matches, they lost twice. That’s got to worry them because Inter are the best away team in the league. In fact, they’re still without a defeat away from home, with seven wins and just one draw. The draw in question was the one with Fiorentina, which was their last away game in 2019.
