    The final game of the weekend in the Italian Serie A is arguably the biggest as Inter Milan travel to the Stadio San Paolo to play Napoli.

    Napoli begin the weekend sitting 5th in the table on 59 points while the visitors are top of the league on 74 points and appear set to win the title this season.

    Napoli come into the game having recorded a 2-0 victory at Sampdoria last weekend. That result keeps them well in contention for the top four this season and a victory in this game would send out a huge statement to the teams around them.

    The victory over Sampdoria means Napoli have won 5 of their last 6 Serie A matches and they have been in good form.

    There have been victories over Bologna and Crotone at home plus AC Milan, Roma, and Sampdoria away. The only set back came away against Juventus and Napoli lost the match 2-1.

    Home form in Serie A has been excellent and Napoli have won each of their last 6 league games at the Stadio San Paolo.

    Trends show Napoli have managed to score at least one goal in all of their last 18 matches in Serie A and that includes 2 or more goals in 5 of their last 6 Serie A fixtures on home soil.

    Inter Milano come into the game on the back of a narrow 1-0 home win against Cagliari. A 77th minute striker by Matteo Darmian was enough to seal the win and take Inter Milan another step closer to the title.

    That result means Inter Milan have won each of their last 11 Serie A games and are undefeated in their last 14 in the league.

    Their away record is impressive and Inter Milan have enjoyed 5 straight victories on the road in Serie A.

    They are undefeated in their last 7 away league games and have scored at least one goal in each of their last 11 Serie A fixtures, with an average of 2.30 goals in their league matches.

    Trends show Inter Milan have scored at least one goal in each of their last 5 away Serie A games but they have picked up just a single victory from their last 7 visits to Napoli in the league.

    Looking ahead to the team news and Napoli are without Hirving Lozano who is suspended and Faouzi Ghoulam who is injured.

    Inter Milan have just one player unavailable and defender Aleksandar Kolarov misses out due to a muscle injury.

    This should be a great game to watch and we expect to see over 2.5 goals and both teams scoring. However, Inter Milan are so close to the title now and have been in tremendous form.

    Therefore, Inter Milan must be considered the favourites to take maximum points and end Napoli’s winning home run.
