Inter Milan vs Napoli Match preview

0 9

Serie A brings another exciting fixture for football fans to wrap up the matchday 34 when Inter Milan hosts Napoli on Sunday evening.

Napoli are coming to this match on the back of a 2-2 draw to Sassuolo. There defence was exposed in that match and that has been their issues all season long. But they play the most eye-pleasing football in the Serie A and have had a solid campaign thus far, as they have guaranteed a spot for the Champions League next season.But they will like to push for the 2nd spot as they want to finish just after Juve to gain direct access to ChampionsLeague group stages in the next season.

Meanwhile, it has been a sorry story for the Nerazzurri. Inter fans started believing again when Stefano Pioli took charge from Frank de Boer, who had a disastrous season. Inter is again on a 5 match winnless run and things again looks dim for them. It is absolutely sad for a team who used to challenge.
