Napoli have locked down second spot already in the division and Inter are only one place behind them. Mathematically they can still miss out on a place in the Champions League next season but a win in this fixture would guarantee that they get there. That is not going to be an easy feat in Naples though. Read our predictions for Napoli v Inter Milan.

Inter Milan News and Form

Inter got a 2-0 home success over Chievo last weekend and that moved them on to a seven-match undefeated streak of form (W3 D4). So it has been solid stuff from them, but those draws have prevented them getting over the line in terms of a top four finish.

It is likely that they will still achieve that goal though. Inter have a strong record away from home in the top flight this season of W9 D4 L5 and they have been carrying good recent road form. Inter have won three of their last four out on their travels (D1).

Inter have averaged 1.6 goals per away game, conceding at an average of just over a goal per game. They have taken a clean sheet in 39% of road games, taking a clean sheet in two of their last three road games. Five of their nine away successes for the season have been by just the one-goal margin.

Four of their five away defeats have been by a margin of just the one goal too. 68% of the away goals that Inter have scored this season have come after the halftime break. Each of Inter’s last four league games have gone under 2.5 goals. There has also been a fair few low-scoring games between these two recently.

Napoli v Inter Milan Predictions

Draw: At the end of the day neither would be disappointed with a draw in this fixture. Napoli are a strong home side and realistically Inter would be pretty happy with a point to keep their top four hopes going strongly. They have an easy home game to finish the season with, so a point here fits for them. Draw in the match outright.
