The eyes of the football fans will be glued to their television sets, as SSC Napoli plays hosts to Inter Milan in an epic Serie A 2021-22 clash this weekend.
The battle for the title is going neck and neck, with the incumbent Champions Inter Milan once again topping the tables at the end of match week 24. However, at 53 points, the lead is razor-thin, with just one point separating the toppers from their opponents for the match, Napoli, and neighbors AC Milan, both of whom are at 52 points.
Inter's advantage, however, lies in the fact that it has played one game fewer, as its clash against Bologna got canceled. The lead could have been more, had Inter not lost its derby against arch-rivals AC Milan last week. However, the team will take some solace from the fact that it beat Roma in the Coppa Italia quarterfinals, and advanced into the semifinals. Simone Inzaghi would want his team to collect the maximum points for this game, and make his bid for a second consecutive title stronger.
After losing its form midway through the tournament, Napoli has bounced back commendably and is yet to lose a Serie A game in the new year. The team has picked up 13 points out of a possible 15 from the last 5 matches and has won 4 consecutive games coming into this match. The club did however crash out of the Coppa Italia, after suffering a 5-2 defeat at the hands of Fiorentina. But that loss will only make the team’s desire to make it to the top of the Serie A table stronger.
Match prediction and betting tips for SSC Napoli vs Inter Milano Serie A 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, Naples, on 12th February 2022.
The hosts are expected to start with a 4-3-2-1 lineup for this match. The team’s confidence will be boosted by the return of Kalidou Koulibaly, who recently captained Senegal to its maiden AFCON victory and Andre Frank Zambo Anguissa from Cameron. The team will however miss the services of Hirving Lozano and Piotr Zielinski.
As for the visitors, Ivan Perisic and Joaquin Correa are injured and will miss out on this key clash. Inzaghi is likely to field a 3-5-2 formation for this match. While both the teams are pretty evenly matched and will be able to score in this game, the visitors hold a slight edge and may emerge victorious.
Bet on Inter Milan to win.
High-profile games where both teams have a lot to lose are often played quite defensively. Teams are worried more about losing rather than attacking and taking chances. We think this is going to be the case in this match between Napoli and Inter Milan as well. We do not see too many goals being scored and like the odds on Under 2.5 for the match.
