Both Sides Struggling to Score
Although many will hope for a firecracker of a match between the best of the rest in Serie A after Juve, they’re likely to be left disappointed with these two seeing fewer than two goals in each of their past three meetings, including a pair of goalless stalemates last term.
In fact, five of six head-to-head encounters across all competitions since January 2016 have seen no more than two strikes, including all three at the San Siro.
It isn’t just matches directly against each other that have given cause to believe this game may not live up to the hype.
Inter Chasing Champions League Place
Inter last finished in the Champions League slots donkey years ago, but while Napoli have consistently been up there amongst the best teams in the division, six of their 10 matches since 2014/15 against top-three outfits have seen just the single strike.
Meanwhile, Inter have seen fewer than three goals in six of nine matches against such teams since 2015/16.
Another Draw Likely?
Given the two 0-0 offerings these two threw up last term, we’re not particularly surprised to see the two sides relatively evenly priced and another draw is probably the most likely outcome.
As Inter have kept a clean sheet in each of their last five on home turf, but could struggle going forwards with an over-reliance on Mauro Icardi for goals and an out-of-form Ivan Perisic seemingly favored by Luciano Spalletti, a third consecutive goalless draw between these two beckons.
