Napoli will face Inter at Stadio San Paolo, in Naples, at Italian Serie A 37th Round. Napoli vs Inter is the match with big interest after their previous matches at Italian Serie AReview our thoughts on this match here below. 

 

Napoli

For SSC Napoli this season is already over, as their place will not change even losing the last match. This is the 4th season in a row when Napoli finishing above 3rd place and could not overtake Juventus. This season Napoli has 13 points deficit with Juventus and now should start preparing for another season and learn from their mistakes. In UEFA Europa League they lost twice to Arsenal in Quarter-finals without scoring any goal in both matches. Moreover, they lost to AC Milan in Coppa Italia in Quarter-final also failing to score.

The Parthenopeans have very strong, talented and skilful players in their squad. This season Arkadiusz Milik take best goalscorers role with 17 goals and 3 assists only in Serie A. As always, 32 years old Belgian Dries Mertens played one of his best seasons with 14 scored goals and 10 assists. Even with great players, Napoli needs to work strongly in summer’s transfer window and strengthen the squad if they want to compete with Juventus.

Unfortunately, Vlad Chiriches, Nikola Maksimovic and Adam Ounas will probably miss the last season’s game due to injuries. Moreover, David Ospina will be absent due to suspension. Although, anyway hosts will give some chances to show themselves to young and prospective players.

 

Inter

In contrast to the hosts, Inter Milan has something to fight for so they will be more prepared and motivated in this game. Now Internazionale stands at 3rd place with 66 points. There are still intrigue who will play next year in Champions League, as Atalanta have 65 points and AC Milan with AS Roma both have 62. So all of these teams will try to show the best abilities in the last games of Serie A. I Nerazzurri showed great performance in the last games as they are unbeaten in 7 matches in a row with 3 wins. Inter Milan also was knocked out from Europa League playing against Eintracht Frankfurt in 1/18 finals. However, this season Internazionale can take the highest place in the past 8 seasons.

Best squad striker is Argentinian Mauro Icardi with 10 goals and 4 assists. He was linked with Real Madrid move after this season, however, Madrid’s plans changed and now they are interested in young Serbian Luka Jovic from Eintracht. This year Inter played strongly in defence and now they are the second team in the league with most clean sheets and 28 conceded goals. Unfortunately, Sime Versaljko and Stefan de Vrij will miss the next game due to injuries.

 

H2H
