      Napoli vs Inter Milan Predictions

      A semi-final place is up for grabs between Serie A title contenders Napoli and Inter Milan when they meet on Tuesday night. These are two true powerhouses in Serie A, but it looks like a messy league in 2015-16 and the Coppa Italia could be the critical trophy up for grabs.

      Napoli have won five straight matches across all competitions, including three out of three since the calendar flipped to 2016. They beat Torino 2-1 on the road, thrashed Frosinone 5-1 at home and crushed Sassuolo 3-1. Napoli top the Serie A table, two points clear of Juventus and four points ahead of third place Inter Milan.

      They’re a high quality attacking side that has piled up the goals with a league leading 41 tallies, the best in Serie A football. Juventus may be the big favourites to win this competition, but Napoli are proving that they are a serious side in this competition.

      Meanwhile, Inter Milan could hardly be playing more contrasting football. They’ve got the best defensive record in the division conceding just 13 times in 20 goals. Their recent form has been less impressive. They lost 2-1 at home to Lazio before the Christmas break, before beating Empoli 1-0, losing 1-0 to Sassuolo and drawing 1-1 away against Atalanta.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Important game

      Important games are rarely truly open and while Napoli are a quality attacking unit, we’re not convinced that they’ll be able to break this game open.

      2. Napoli will play a negative style

      As many goals as Napoli have scored, they’re also a pretty good defensive team and they’ll be willing to play Inter’s style.

      3. Limit to Inter’s success

      There’s only so much success that Robert Mancini’s strategy can achieve, you’ve got to do more than sit back eventually.
