Match Date: 19 October 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza

 

Sports betting’s top pick, Inter,  shall use their humiliating loss to Fiorentina in snatching a win against the rising Napoli. The host experienced a drop in the Serie A ranking after a severe thrashing from Fiorentina. The said loss was the club’s second consecutive defeat.

 

The contenders

Inter Milan

Inter Milan had to endure a clean sheet from Fiorentina. Despite taking plenty of shots, it was unable to convert the scoring opportunities that they had. It was in stark contrast with their opponent, which has been clinical and prolific in the said encounter.

 

But what is even more devastating was the fact that Inter dropped to the 10th  spot of the top-flight league.

 

More problems seem to plague the club as Danilo D’ Ambrosio incurred an injury during their training. He will be joining Daniel Osvaldo and Mateo Kovacic in the sidelines while watching their team battle it out against Napoli. Its head honcho, Walter Mazzarri was also suffering from flu and was unable to participate during the club’s recent training.

 

Napoli

The momentum currently resides on Napoli after securing back-to-back victories in their previous matches. Just recently, the club pulled off a come from behind win against Torino. This catapulted their rank to the 7th spot of the table and hopefully, they will be able to continue their winning streak.

 

Unfortunately, Gonzalo Higuain will most likely miss the upcoming match to have some rest after performing his international duties.

 

Possible head turner

The presence of Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Callejon could readily cause big trouble for Inter. The latter must do everything to stop them and salvage themselves from yet another humiliating defeat.

 

Prediction

Inter Milan 1-2 Napoli
