Even though they were eliminated from the title race in Serie A quite early on this season, Inter Milan might have some of the most successful campaigns in the last ten years. Nerazzurri advanced to the UEFA Champions League finals where they will face Manchester City in early June, while also being in a position to battle for the Coppa Italia trophy later this month versus Fiorentina.

As for the home team, Napoli have secured their first Serie A title since 1990 with a 1-1 draw against Udinese on 4th May. Luciano Spaletti’s side has dominated the league since day one and deservedly got away with this precious piece of silverware. The only thing which could motivate them a bit in the remaining three rounds is to try and set some records in terms of points, goal difference, etc.
The squad wasn’t looking pumped last weekend and underperformed drastically against 8th-placed Monza, losing the duel 2-0. Napoli faced Inter Milan just once this season, in January at Guiseppe Meazza where they suffered a narrow 1-0 loss with Edin Dzeko scoring the only goal.
One of the most common questions regarding Sunday’s match at Diego Armando Maradona Stadium is if Simone Inzaghi is going to rest some of his key players for upcoming battles. Inter Milan didn’t’ secure the top four placement in Serie A just yet, sitting in 3rd place with 66 points, five above 5th placed AC Milan with three rounds to go.
Inter Milan Is Looking Strong Right Now
Nerazzuri not only outplayed AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals but also demonstrated great defending, successfully keeping two clean sheets in a row. As for their domestic campaign, they are full of confidence after earning five back to back victories against Empoli 3-0, Lazio 3-1, Verona 6-0, Roma 2-0, and Sassuolo 4-2.
On the other hand, Napoli didn’t seem that invested in last weekend’s 0-2 loss to Monza, so my first betting pick is going to be an away win at 8/5. It doesn’t matter who Inzaghi plays in the starting line-up, whether Dzeko, Martinez, or Lukaku as all three are in red-hot form right now.
Six Clean Sheets in the Last Eight Contests
If we take all competitions into consideration, Inter Milan have kept their net intact in six of the last eight matches. Napoli rarely failed to score at home throughout the entire campaign, but the circumstances changed drastically with players already having a summer vacation on their minds. This said, my second bet is going to be Inter Milan to win with a 1-0 correct score at 8/1.
