class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Sunday's top-of-the-table clash in Serie A is set to be a tight affair with this fixture having a history of low-scoring matches
The standout fixture in Serie A this weekend sees champions Inter host leaders Napoli in what should be a fascinating contest at San Siro on Sunday evening.
The hosts boast an extraordinary home record in the league with the Nerazzurri unbeaten in front of their own fans for 13 months, yet Napoli have been rampant on the road, winning nine of their last 10 matches and will head north full of confidence.
Inter vs Napoli latest odds
Simone Inzaghi’s Inter are seven points adrift of their opponents heading into Sunday’s clash yet the hosts remain favourites with bet365 offering them at 6/5 (2.20).
Napoli’s last league win against Inter at San Siro came back in 2017 although they did record a Coppa Italia victory there in 2020.
The visitors can be backed at 9/4 (3.25) with the draw at 5/2 (3.50).
Inter vs Napoli first goalscorer
Inter’s top scorer this season is Edin Dzeko with the veteran striker having netted seven times in Serie A having started nine matches.
The Bosnian is available at 11/2 (6.50) to break the deadlock, with Lautaro Martinez offered at 5/1 (6.00) the same price as Napoli’s in-form Nigerian forward Victor Osimhen.
Meanwhile Lorenzo Insigne can be backed at 6/1 (7.00) to score first although all four of the Italian’s goals this season have come from the penalty spot.
Inter vs Napoli preview
Napoli’s superb start to the season has been underpinned by a rock-solid defence with Luciano Spalletti’s men conceding just four goals in 12 Serie A matches.
Four of their last five matches have seen under 2.5 goals and it is fair to say that their trip to the champions is their biggest test of the season so far.
Inter, meanwhile, have had two huge clashes in the last month with their games against Juventus and AC Milan both ending 1-1 and there could be some interest in backing another low-scoring game.
Inter’s last four matches in the league have seen less than three goals while this fixture has a history of tight encounters with under 2.5 goals paying out in nine of the last 11 competitive meetings.
Inter vs Napoli tips & predictions
Under 2.5 goals is priced at 11/10 (2.10) and should offer attractive value for what should be another evenly matched game.
