Internazionale and Napoli come face-to-face at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in a massive, heavyweight Serie A clash this midweek.
Unbeaten in six Serie A games in a row (W3, D3), Inter take on a side they’ve outplayed only once in the last three top-flight H2Hs held in Lombardy (D1, L1). Notably, each of those three clashes featured under 1.5 goals, which has been true in only four of Inter’s 18 Serie A home matches this season. Quick out of the blocks, the ‘Nerazzurri’ are one of just three sides to gobble at least 20 first-half goals at home this season. Interestingly, Antonio Conte’s team won three of five league home fixtures in which they shipped the opening goal this season (W3, D1, L1). But, the ‘clean-sheet’ theme remains significant, considering five of the last seven results (wins/losses) in competitive H2Hs here saw the winner on the day shut out the loser (W3, L3).
Meanwhile, none of Napoli’s last three games have ended in a draw (W2, L1), with each of those results seeing the winner on the day score precisely once in both halves. However, the ‘Partenopei’ have endured mixed fortunes away from home in eight league trips this calendar year (W5, D1, L3). Importantly, seven of those results witnessed the winner on the day score the opening goal. But, even if they concede the opener as they did in half (nine) of 18 Serie A trips this season, Napoli may still fight their way into the game – Gennaro Gattuso’s men avoided defeat in four applicable matches (W3, D1, L5). That’s because 63.33% (19) of their 30 Serie A away goals scored arrived after the break.
