Team Analysis and Match Predictions
In the previous match at the Italian Cup, Inter had a dispute with Fiorentina at home and Inter won 2-1.
At that time it was a very dominant and disciplined appearance from Antonio Conte’s men. None of the Inter players get a yellow card, while four are issued for Fiorentina.
At the moment Inter Milan have run three matches with wins and ten matches unbeaten. They are also unbeaten in 20 of their last 22 matches overall this season and since April they have only faced two defeats at home against Juventus (in Serie A) and Barcelona (in the Champions League).
Meanwhile, Napoli managed to get one of the toughest wins of their season in the quarter-finals yesterday. They entertain Lazio who were flying high and recorded a narrow 1-0 victory.
It was a tense event, because both sides were reduced to ten players for getting a red card. Napoli have led almost all matches, because the only goal of the match came in the early minutes namely precisely in the second minute.
This thrilling victory is a hard struggle that will certainly give confidence to the players for successfully defeating the team that is pursuing the Scudetto this season.
But on the other hand, Napoli have lost five of their last ten matches and are without a win in 14 of the previous 20 matches. And when they became the visitors, they could only get a total of three wins from eleven previous away matches.
Likely in the match later, Inter Milan still has a chance to win the match. First of all, they have the advantage of playing as a host.
In addition, Inter Milan are the toppers in the Serie A table, even ahead of Juventus, while his Napoli colleagues are 11th in the table. In addition, Inter have just won against Napoli away with a score of 1-3 (7 January 2020) and only twice have they lost at Giuseppe Meazza against Napoli since 2000.
Another thing is that Napoli only managed to score a total of one goal from their four previous visits to this stadium
However, please note that Napoli have shown their fighting spirit against Lazio. They might make the same game against Inter later. We will witness the excitement of the match later, who will be the winner.
