SSC Napoli vs Inter Milan Serie A Preview
Italy Serie A | Stadio San Paolo | 6th January 2020 20:45
The Italian Serie A returns this weekend with Inter Milan, who are currently level on points with Juventus at the top of the table travel to the Stadio San Paolo to take on Napoli.
Napoli come into the game having defeated Sassuolo 2-1 away from home in their last Serie A game. It was an important victory for Napoli as they had been struggling to pick up points having previously gone 8 matches without a win in Serie A. Looking ahead to the team news and Napoli start without the suspended Nikola Maksimovic. Kalidou Koulibaly, Lorenzo Tonelli and Faouzi Ghoulam are doubtful while Kevin Malcuit will definitely miss out.
Inter Milan have enjoyed a successful first half of the season in Serie A but cannot afford to let their level drop. They went into the winter break on the back of a very good 4-0 home win against Genoa. It was important to get back to winning ways in the league having previously drawn 2 matches against Roma at home and Fiorentina away. Inter Milan are undefeated in their last 10 Serie A games and they have won 7 of those 10 matches. Away form has been excellent and Inter Milan have won 7 and drawn one of their 8 away league games this season. Both teams have scored in 9 of Inter Milan’s last 12 Serie A matches and over 2.5 goals have been seen in 10 of those 12 games. Inter Milan travel with doubts over the fitness of Danilo D’Ambrosio, Kwadwo Asamoah, Nicolò Barella and Alexis Sanchez but should be close to full strength for this match.
It is a tough start to 2020 for both clubs but Inter Milan will be feeling confident of getting the job done. They have an excellent away record in Serie A this season and could come away with maximum points with both teams scoring.
PREDICTION : INTER MILAN 2-1 WIN
