Napoli vs Inter Milan

, KO: 19:45 Dec 3, 2023, Stadio Diego Armando Maradona
Inter Milan

A thrilling contest could be on the cards as reigning champions Napoli host league leaders Inter Milan in a Serie A fixture on Sunday. The Neapolitans are attempting to snap out of an erratic patch and could find things difficult against Inter, who have been flying this season.

Napoli’s title defence has not gone according to plan as they have struggled to replicate last season’s impressive campaign. They have already been beaten three times this season and are currently fourth on the standings, eight points off the pace.

Things have been particularly difficult for Napoli in recent weeks as they have picked up just one win in their last four matches. That win came in Walter Mazzarri’s first Serie A game in charge as they triumphed 2-1 at Atalanta before suffering a 4-2 defeat at Real Madrid in a Champions League fixture on Wednesday.

A major problem for Napoli is that they have surprisingly found things difficult at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. They are winless in their last five home matches across all competitions, suffering three defeats in that run.

Inter Milan have also stumbled slightly in recent weeks and travel to Naples off the back of two straight draws. First they were held 1-1 by Juventus in their previous Serie A fixture and also fought back from three goals down to earn a 3-3 draw with Benfica in the Champions League.

Despite both results, Inter Milan have progressed to the Champions League round of 16 and remain the team to beat in Serie A. Simone Inzaghi’s men are two points clear at the top of the standings and eight ahead of Napoli.

Inter Milan have also done some of their best work on their travels and are unbeaten in their last seven Serie A away matches. They have claimed six wins in that but have failed to keep a clean sheet in the last two.

How the bookies view it

Inter Milan have the slight edge among the bookies and are priced at 6/4 by 888Sport to claim the win. A victory for Napoli is valued at 15/8 by Paddy Power while a draw is set at odds of 5/2 by bet365.

Head to head

Inter Milan have a 22-17 advantage with 13 draws from 52 previous matches against Napoli. Both teams won their home fixture last season with the Neapolitans claiming a 3-1 victory at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona back in May.

Players to watch

Victor Osimhen has made a couple of substitute appearances for Napoli in recent weeks as he continues his return from injury. The Nigerian striker could be handed a start on Sunday and with six Serie A goals this season, is priced at 6/4 by Paddy Power to find the net on Sunday.

It has been an impressive campaign so far for Lautaro Martinez, who has 13 Serie A goals this season. The striker could be worth keeping an eye on to score anytime on Sunday at 7/4 by bet365.
