Sunday’s Serie A action concludes with a massive showdown between Napoli and Inter Milan at the Stadio San Paolo as the visitors chase their elusive first SA win at this venue in the 21st century (D4, L8).
The hosts will finish as the runners-up for the second season in a row, and the outcome of this clash won’t influence their league status. Still, they come into this encounter after clinching three straight SA wins while scoring precisely two goals in each of those triumphs. Even though they’ve endured mixed fortunes over their past five SA home outings (W2, D1, L2), only Juventus boast better home record than Napoli this term (W12, D4, L2). Also, just two sides have shipped fewer home goals that Gli Azzurri (15) this season, with the Parthenopeans keeping eight blanks sheets in 18 SA home games so far. But, they have failed to preserve a clean slate in their last five home matches across all competitions, allowing over 1.5 match goals twice in the process.
Meanwhile, the visitors are inches away from securing back-to-back Champions League appearances as they sit four points clear of fifth-placed AC Milan, with two league games left to go. Although unbeaten in their last seven SA fixtures, the Nerazzurri have pulled off just three wins in that period (W3, D4), with five of those matches featuring under 2.5 goals. Also, for Inter, goals have been in short supply in the recent period, with the Milanese outfit scoring one goal or less in four of their last six SA fixtures. Still, before playing out a goalless draw with Udinese, Luciano Spalletti’s players have put together three away SA wins, scoring over 1.5 match goals in each.
