The teams featured in our free Inter vs Napoli preview today need victories this weekend, though both need the wins for different reasons. The hosts are placed just outside the Champions League qualification places at present and need the points to keep them in the race. The visitors are just about holding on to the top spot in Serie A with Juventus lurking just behind them.
In the run up to today’s selection of Inter vs Napoli betting tips, the Nerazzurri have lost just once in eight matches. Successive victories from their last two outings at the San Siro against Bologna and Benevento were much-needed wins and they remain Inter’s only triumphs during that same period. Luciano Spalletti’s men have only been beaten once at home in 2017/18, which is one of the strongest home records in the division.
Napoli were beaten 4-2 by Roma in Naples last weekend, bringing an end to their run of ten straight Serie A wins. The loss means that Juventus can overtake the Partenopei at the summit of the table if they win their upcoming game in hand. Maurizio Sarri’s job this week will be to keep his players’ belief burning bright. His teams’ record of twelve wins from thirteen on the road this season should help keep their spirits high.

Sometimes, a must-win situation can bring the very best out of a group of players. Ahead of this week’s free Inter vs Napoli bets, the club from Naples have shown remarkable consistency. Despite their setback against Roma last time out, the Partenopei have won ten of their last eleven league fixtures.
It’s the Gli Azzurri’s results on the road in 2017/18 that have stood out the most, however. Sarri’s troops have won an incredible twelve of their thirteen games outside of Naples this term. The last time they were beaten on their travels in Serie A was back in October of 2016.
The Nerazzurri have only won two of their last six league contests at the San Siro and though they won both of their most recent two games there, narrow wins against Bologna and Benevento won’t scare anyone. The Partenopei have beaten Internazionale in two of their last three meetings and they have every chance of enhancing that record further when the teams meet again this week. The latest Serie A football odds at Bet-at-home offer bettors the most value for their stake. We recommend taking a closer look.
The away team under scrutiny in this week’s Inter vs Napoli predictions have been incredibly tight defensively when playing away from the Stadio San Paolo in 2017/18. To go along with their fantastic outright results, they have allowed their opponents to score just seven times in their thirteen road trips. They are currently on a run of four straight away clean sheets.
Internazionale have been lacking in the goal scoring department for quite some time. They became heavily reliant on the goal scoring prowess of Mauro Icardi in the early parts of the season, though the Argentine has been struggling for consistency and fitness for the past few months. As a result, the Nerazzurri have been posting very low goal numbers.
There were under 2.5 goals scored in nine of their last ten matches in total. In four of their last five matches at the San Siro, the net was rippled under 2.5 times too. In addition, in four of the last five meetings between these teams, they failed to pass the 2.5 goal threshold. Things are expected to be equally tight this weekend, which is why we are advising you to take the same under option with Betway Sports. Their odds are second to none in terms of value.
