Napoli vs Inter Milan: Predictions
A run of 11 consecutive Serie A wins has seen Inter pull 11 points clear of city rivals AC Milan and it’s now just a matter of time until they seal their first title since 2010, finally ending Juventus’ nine-year reign of terror. Antonio Conte’s men have the joint-best defensive record in the Italian top-flight this season, while only Atalanta (71) have scored more than their 69 goals. Regardless of when their status as champions is confirmed, they’ll be well worthy of the title.
But Inter face a tough test against a Napoli side still battling hard for a place in next season’s Champions League. Gennaro Gattuso’s men are fifth, just two points behind Atalanta, while they’ve lost just one of their last eight Serie A matches, winning six and drawing the other.
