Napoli's lack of firepower could help Inter grab something from this game
Both of these sides were in action on Monday night.
A cracker of a match in store on Friday night as Inter travel to face Napoli.
Bet365 make Napoli 17/20 to win this with Inter priced at 15/4
Both of these sides had contrasting fortunes earlier in the week. Napoli kicked off a couple of hours before Inter and could only draw with out-of-form Sassuolo. Gregoire Defrel's second half equaliser gave his side a share of the spoils after Napoli had dominated the first half.
Mauricio Sarri's side are struggling for firepower. It's a story we've been hearing for weeks but with Milik absent, the onus falls of Manos Gabbiadini, who isn't delivering. His confidence is rock bottom and he doesn't look threatening. Lorenzo Insigne fired for the hosts on Monday and could be a threat here. Dries Mertens is banned for this game and will be much missed. Jose Callejon is a possible option through the middle if Sarri's patience runs out with the mis-firing Gabbiadini.
Napoli could have one eye on their Champions League fixture this week. After failing to put Dynamo Kiev to bed, they still need a point on Matchday 6 in order to progress.
Inter had a significantly better Monday night with a 4-2 win over Fiorentina. It was Stefan Pioli's first victory in charge and Inter looked dangerous throughout. They made hard work of it though, conceding to 10 man Fiorentina and almost throwing away a 3-0 first half lead.
The Nerazurri look very threatening in the final third, but are perhaps missing the steady influence of Gary Medel who is sidelined through injury.
Mauro Icardi scored twice against the Viola and will be looking to add more on Friday evening. He was heavily linked with a move to Napoli in the summer, but decided to remain at the San Siro and will be determined to notch against his admirers.
Pioli had a decent record against Napoli as Lazio boss knocking them out Coppa Itali at the Semi Final stage and denying them a place in the Champions League Qualifiers in 2014/15.
