Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in five of Inter’s last seven matches, and in three of Napoli’s last six.
  • Inter’s record of 54 goals scored is the best in Serie A.
  • Only Inter, AC Milan, and Lazio have outscored Napoli, who have 45 goals in Serie A this term.

Scudetto race is back on after Inter loss

After a Winter in which Simone Inzaghi’s Inter pulled clear of their rivals, do we now have a serious three-horse race for the Serie A title? Inter’s 2-1 derby defeat to cross-city rivals AC Milan leaves the Nerazzurri just one point clear of both the Rossoneri and Saturday’s opponents Napoli, albeit with a game in hand.

Inter’s previously rock-solid defence has been creaking in recent weeks, with both teams finding the net in five of their last seven matches. The visitors do remain the strongest attacking force in Italian football, scoring 54 goals in their 23 league games this term, and netting 24 in 11 away league games. The Italian champions have not failed to score in a single domestic game this season, with only Real Madrid and Shakhtar keeping them out in all competitions.

Napoli, meanwhile, have recovered from a festive injury crisis to win four consecutive Serie A matches, netting nine goals in that run. Luciano Spalletti’s team have only failed to score on three occasions all season, two of which came in December when their squad was seriously depleted. Both teams have netted in three of their last six games, and they’ve found the net 22 times in 12 home Serie A contests.

Back both teams to net when title rivals meet

Inter beat Napoli 3-2 earlier this season, ending the Partenopei’s unbeaten start to the league campaign. While it might seem counter-productive to back both teams to score when the league’s two-best defences meet, Inter have been particularly vulnerable recently but continued to plunder goals at the other end, while Napoli, for their part, were recently hammered 5-2 by Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia.

With Napoli now able to count on the likes of Victor Osimhen, Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne, we’re struggling to separate these two title rivals.

An entertaining 2-2 draw could be a good correct score prediction, and would leave the door open for AC Milan to take the initiative in the Scudetto race.
