Inter Milan vs Napoli tips and predictions: Runaway leaders to topple defending champions

Inter Milan and Napoli will conclude game week 29 in Serie A at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Sunday evening (1945 GMT).

Only a few days on from their Champions League eliminations, the Serie A leaders and the defending champions will meet in a passing of the torch.

The hosts are 16 points clear of their city rivals and could lift the trophy with seven games to go if they build on their current 10-match winning streak.

Simone Inzaghi rested his key players last weekend but that didn’t stop them from reaching the magic number 10 against Bologna.

They’ve crashed out of the Champions League at the hands of Atletico Madrid since then, but we don’t expect that to dampen their spirit too much.

On the other hand, Napoli could only manage a draw against Torino in their last match, drawing 1-1 for the third time in five outings.

 

The defending champions are 31 points behind leaders Inter and are even struggling to keep pace with fifth-place Roma, but the good news is their attack is looking healthier.

Victor Osimhen has scored four in four upon his return from injury, but his record doesn’t compare to Lautaro Martinez who’s rattled in 23 goals this campaign.

Inter have dominated previous meetings this season, winning 3-0 away from home in the league and edging the Super Cup in Riyadh 1-0.

Those results are in keeping with their current form as they’ve shut out their last six opponents, but Napoli should have enough to contribute to the scoring.
