The weekend before saw most Serie A games postponed because of the death of Fiorentina player, David Astori, who passed away at the age of 31.
With all that well behind now, the Serie A will be featuring a couple of mouth-watering clashes, including the blockbuster between Inter Milan and Napoli. As you’re looking forward to enjoy all the action from this game, here are reasons why you should place your bet on this game.
Napoli’s unbeaten run
If you’re looking for a winning bet this weekend, the stats from this game suggest that a Napoli win is a good bet and here’s why. Napoli, currently topping the Italian Serie A table, has not lost an away game in the league this season.
During that period (13 games), they’ve scored 30 goals and have conceded just seven goals. That’s an average of 2 goals scored per game, a stat that makes Napoli favorites in this game.
The tight defense that may limit goals
While Napoli has not lost any away game this season, Inter Milan has only lost one game at home this season. One major factor that has helped both teams to achieve this feat is their tough defense.
Both teams have conceded an average of less than one goal per game since the 2017/2018 Serie A season began. What this means is that this game could be a low scoring game. And you can use this to your advantage this weekend.
The history that favors Inter Milan
For all that has been said in favor of Napoli, the history between both teams is strongly in favor of the Milan boys.
Both sides have met 37 times (16 games at home, 21 away from home for Inter and vice versa for Napoli) in total. Of all the 16 fixtures between both sides played inside the San Siro stadium, Inter Milan recorded 10 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses.
What this means is that Napoli, in recent times, have found it difficult to win against Inter Milan inside the San Siro stadium.
The league table battle
Inter Milan find themselves fifth on the table as they face table-toppers, Napoli. For the Milan-based side, this game is about getting the maximum points and climbing up the table into the Champions League spots.
For Napoli, this is another chance to get three maximum points and maintain the gap between themselves and Juventus on the table. Both sides have something at stake in this game, meaning both of them will definitely come out to play which may end with both teams scoring in the game.
The stage is set. Sunday will witness one of the biggest games in Europe. With all these reasons, which betting market will you be looking to make money from in this game? Will you be betting on the goals, straight wins, or half time draws? Leave us a comment and let us know your thoughts.
