Inter Milan vs Napoli Match Details

The Coppa Italia semi-final first-leg between Inter Milan and Napoli kicks-off at the San Siro at 19.45 on Wednesday 12 February. The match is being broadcast live on BT Sport 2.

Inter Milan Form

Inter Milan only finished fifth in Serie A last season but have ridden from the ashes of former glories to mount a serious challenge for a 19th Serie A title. They currently head Juventus on goal difference in their bid to stop Juventus winning a ninth consecutive title and their 36th overall.

Inter also come into this match on the back of three straight wins in Serie A against Fiorentina, Udinese, and AC Milan.

Napoli Form

Napoli finished a highly respectable second in last season’s Serie A, but they currently sit just 11th this season, 24 points behind Inter after 23 games.
They’ve lacked consistency this season and, though last month’s defeat of Juventus shows they’re still capable of some big shows against the big teams, a 2-3 home defeat to lowly Lecce makes them hard to predict.

Inter Milan vs Napoli Head-To-Heads

Napoli showed what they are capable of in a 4-1 home over Inter Milan 4-1 in the penultimate game of last season. But it’s worth remembering Inter had beaten Napoli 1-0 in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.

Of course, much has also happened last season with Inter’s investment in the transfer market paying off in style with this season’s improved form that includes a 3-1 away win at Napoli. Romelu Lukaku bagged two goals then and the Belgian striker is one of the main reasons why Inter are having their best season for some time.

Interestingly, Inter and Napoli met in the quarterfinals of the Coppa Italia four times in the last decade, Inter won 2-0 in 2016 before losing to Inter in the semifinals.

But it was Napoli that won in 1-0 2015 before losing to Lazio in the semifinals, whilst they won 2-0 in 2012 before going onto lift the trophy. The pair also drew 0-0 in 2011 before Inter won on penalties before going onto lift the trophy.

Free Tips Inter Milan vs Napoli

A look at the last four Coppa Italia meetings between Inter and Napoli suggests this will be a tight game, as at least one team has failed to score in each of those four matches. However, the last two Serie A games between the two sides have finished 3-1 and 4-1.

That’s why it could be worth keeping things simple and backing the form team, Inter Milan, to win at home at even-money (2.00) or bigger.
