Exhausted Napoli Welcomes High Scoring Inter MilanPublished December 2, 2016 by Florin P
Busy schedule takes its toll on Napoli who is on the brink of disaster in both Serie A and Champions League (7:45 p.m UK Time).
Inter Milan has suffered an untimely elimination from Europa League and this gives them more time to focus on the domestic championship. In Serie A they are not even close of challenging the leaders and their chances to play in a European competition next year are slim. A victory over Napoli, would represent a major step forward and right now, the visitors have a good shot at claiming three points.
High-Scoring Games for Inter Milan in November
Last month was pretty good for Inter Milan, despite the fact that they only won half of the games played. Their offensive is finally clicking and scoring goals no longer seems to be a problem for the former champions. With an average of two goals scored per match, they have good reasons to be optimistic ahead of this fixture.
Inter Milan doesn’t have home pitch advantage, but had no serious problem in scoring goals on the road lately. Icardi remains their most successful striker and the main threat for Napoli. The major concern for the visiting team is the inability to keep clean sheets and their propensity to concede the first goal.
One Match Away from Disaster
Napoli squandered numerous opportunities in the last two Champions League games played at home. They were unable to defeat either Besiktas or the Dynamo Kiev in front of their fans. Now they need to prevail in Portugal, against the strongest team in the group.
Both the players and the manager are more concerned about the upcoming match than this Serie A clash. Even though players won’t be rested in this fixture, fatigue is a real problem for the starting 11. As it is, punters should definitely take the even odds offered by bet365 Sports on Inter Milan to win or draw. A bet on more than 2.5 goals to be scored is also an alternative, one that could pay off even faster.
