Our prediction for this Coppa Italia match:
All eyes will be on Stadio San Paolo when Napoli and Inter face each other in the Coppa Italia semis, return leg. Napoli head into the match following a 2-1 win over Torino, and they are seen as favourites to advance to the Italian Cup final. The Neapolitans aim to defend their slim lead in the return leg, and seeing that Inter are fully focused on winning Scudetto, we believe that home win should be considered.
Important defender Kalidou Koulibaly could recover in time to face the Nerazzurri in Thursday’s showdown. Inter, on the other hand, have no other choice but to adopt an attack-minded approach in the Stadio San Paolo clash, but beating Genaro Gattuso’s men in Naples is easier said than done. Since Antonio Conte’s men are likely to go all guns blazing at Napoli, we predict that the hosts will put the tie to bed on the break.
