After two straight defeats, I Partenopei were able to improve their form in their recent matches. Ancelotti’s men won all of their last three league games, including their last one against SPAL.
That positive run will give Napoli enough confidence in taking down Nerazzurri on Sunday. The home team will be keen on giving a special end of season farewell for their loyal fans.

Inter haven’t been great in their last five games, winning two and drawing three. Fortunately, they did won their last match, beating bottom dweller, Chievo 2-0 at San Siro.
However, that victory isn’t going to lift their spirit much against a side line Napoli. Inter will need a good performance to get something positive from their away fixture.
Ancelotti’s side only have one confirmed absentee for this weekend in Vlad Chiriches. However, some players are in doubts regarding their fitness condition.
Nevertheless, Napoli can still put on a strong squad with Milik and Insigne starting up front. Alex Meret will be hoping to have a good game in goal and help his team win.
Spaletti’s men also have a pretty clean injury situation ahead of this weekend tie. However, there’s still some doubts regarding Politano and Stefan De Vrij’s condition.
Inter are hoping that Mauro Icardi can lead the line well up front and get them a goal. Handanovic must put on a strong performance in stopping Napoli’s attacking players.
Head to Head Records:
The last five meetings between both teams have surprisingly been edged by Inter with two wins, three draws and one defeat.
Their latest matchup at San Paolo was on October 22, 2017 which ended in a goalless draw.
Playing in front of their loyal fans for the last time, Napoli are motivated to get all three points. Partenopei will also look to avenge the defeat they picked up in previous encounter.
Inter are set to battle hard though as they still need to secure their top four place. It will be an interesting encounter which can go either way, though Napoli’s motivation can give them that win.
Final Score: 2-1
