Napoli vs Inter – Serie A : The big match of the 9th round of the Serie A will be a meeting between the 1st and 2nd place of this competition…
These are two teams with a lot of interesting aspects and that suggest, in the first place, a good game of football.
Still, where Maurizio Sarri’s Napoli is a crafted, planned and consolidated team, Luciano Spalletti’s Inter is still a work in progress,
with a clear influence of his coach on a lot of the improvements they have been showing from last season, but still following their path towards being able to compete for the Italian league title.
The competition that exists in the Serie A, allows, however, for teams in different stages of evolution on their respective process, to fight shoulder to shoulder.
Napoli has been struggling and feeling tired on their Champions League matches, having already lost away at Shakthar Donetsk and in Manchester, against the Citizens,
but they have a clean record in the Serie A, which seems to be their priority. Inter has only dropped points on their trip to Bologna, where they’ve drawn.
Last week, besides the already mentioned loss in Manchester, Napoli travelled to Rome, where they’ve beaten Roma 1-0, in a match where they’ve shown a great ability to control the rhythm of the match.
Inter has had a more intense evening, on the Milan derby, which they ended up winning 3-2, but where they were submitted to AC Milan’s dominance during long periods of the match.
Spalletti had a week to rectify their mistakes and avoid something that, if it happens again in Naples, can be fatal.
Napoli vs Inter – Betting Tip and Prediction:
In a match where we will have to understand the consequences of the strain suffered in Manchester
(the shorter utilization of Allan and Jorginho’s absence in this match might ensure a fresher Napoli on their essential area), the Neapolitans are favoured
but they might face one of the toughest matches in the Serie A so far. A win would give them even more confidence in the title race.
