Our match prediction:
Inter Milan will travel on Monday evening to San Paolo Stadium for the confrontation with Napoli. Inter Milan is currently the leader in the Italian Serie A with 30 points out of 13 games. The club from Milano is in great form; unbeaten 7 games in a row and won all of their last 4 games. Napoli on the other hand is runner up on the table and in great form as well, after a difficult start this season the club from Naples is unbeaten for 16(!) games in a row. A victory for Napoli in this thriller will put the team on the first place. We predict Napoli to beat Inter Milan despite their mid week game in the Europa League. Taking the home advantage and the current form of super strike Higuain in note won't give Inter Milan a good perspective. The last time Napoli didn't won at home against Inter Milan was in 2011.
