Reasons for Napoli vs Inter Tip
This game will be the ultimate derby of the Italian Serie A 9th round. The first-placed against the second team in the standings. Napoli had European obligations, and they came back from England after the match with Manchester City. Meanwhile, Inter had no such commitments, and they were preparing for this event throughout the whole week. Two big coaches are going to clash once again. Maurizio Sarri and Luciano Spaletti will write another chapter in their history of meetings.
The club from Naples is perfect in the domestic championship. So far, they have eight victories with a fantastic goal difference of 26-5. The only time when this tremendous straight was interrupted was during the European competitions. There they have two defeats, the last one this Tuesday against Manchester City 2-1 at Etihad Stadium. But we have to admit that Partenopei didn’t deserve to lose in Manchester since they had good chances to snap at least one point. The productivity of the matches they play is extremely high, and in only one event in the previous 10, we haven’t seen three goals or more. They are extraordinary at San Paolo Stadium with five straight triumphs and a total goal difference of 18-2. In 4 games during that period they have scored 3 or more goals.
Luciano Spalletti definitely brought some refreshment in Inter’s game. Nerrazzuri are in the second spot with an excellent record of 7 wins and only one draw. The moral is extremely high after they defeated the biggest rival AC Milan. In the previous round, Inter defeated Rossoneri 3-2, with the hat-trick of Mauro Icardi. That was the third straight victory for Spalletti’s boys. Since the start of the season, the hosts scored 2 or more goals in 6 matches and kept clean sheets 4 times. Just to mention, the hosts haven’t lost in the previous 14 games in a row.
Napoli vs Inter Head to Head
It is interesting that for most recent events between these two sides terminated without both teams to score. But that was before Spalletti took over the charge.
The last time they met, Napoli had more success, and that was on Giuseppe Meazza, 0-1.
Napoli vs Inter Prediction and Betting Tips
Although the host had some challenges during the midweek, we do not believe that this is going to affect their performance. Napoli to score over 1.5 goals is our first choice. Simply, Partenopei are outstanding at home.
For the second bet, we would suggest taking both teams to score and over 2.5 goals. From our point of view, this game is going to be open without many tactical assignments. Inter Milan is also productive upfront, so we believe that the high scoring affair is in front of us.
