Our prediction for this Serie A match:
All eyes will be on Stadio Giuseppe Meazza when Inter and Napoli face each other in the Serie A derby. The Nerazzurri are eyeing their third consecutive league win, and their attacking displays in back-to-back wins over Bologna (6-1) and Atalanta (3-2) are surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Wednesday’s clash. Edin Dzeko, who was scoring goals for fun before the World Cup break, should keep his place in the starting XI, while both Stefan de Vrij and Marcelo Brozovic are major doubts. Meanwhile, Luciano Spalletti’s troops aim to cement top position in the standings.
The league leaders are eyeing their 12th consecutive win in the national championship. Napoli are on the right track to win their first Scudetto since 1990, but beating Inter at “Meazza” is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Luciano Spalletti should have a full squad to choose from for Wednesday’s derby as both Kvaratskhelia and Rrahmani are back from injuries.
