Inter’s quest for a Champions League continues tonight at the Stadio San Paolo as they face a very difficult task away against second placed Napoli.

The Nerazzurri haven’t been in a good form with just 2 wins and four draws in their last 6 games. Giving their poor record at Naples, Luciano Spalletti’s men have a mountain to climb but the team has won their last 6 away matches in the Serie A.

Attack:

The Nerazzurri have scored 10 goals in their last 4 away games but they have not scored in their last two matches at the San Paolo. Club top scorer, Mauro Icardi has been unproductive in 6 games, with his last goal coming against Genoa in April from the spot. Danilo D’Ambrosio and Matteo Politano have 5 assists each.

Napoli are the 3rd highest scoring team after Atalanta and Juventus and they have scored in 13 consecutive league games, the last time they were barren was against Torino in February. The Partenopei average the most shots per game with 18.5 and they currently have 3 players on double figures in terms of goals scored, most in the Serie A – Milik (17), Mertens (14) and Insigne (10).

Defence:

Inter have the second strongest defence in the Serie A having kept 17 clean sheets. Inter haven’t conceded over 0.5 goals in their last 8 matches. Milan Skriniar, who recently renewed his contract, averages 3.9 clearances per game. Brozovic still leads in tackles and interceptions per game with 3 and 1.3 respectively.

Napoli have the 3rd best defense with 32 goals conceded but they have managed to keep a clean sheet, just once in their last 11 games.

Moving the ball:

Inter have the highest average of ball possession in the Serie A with 57.1% and a pass accuracy of 86.2%, making them third best in the Serie A.

Napoli closely follow Inter in terms of possession with 57% but are ahead in pass accuracy with 87.4%.

Whoscored rating leaders:

For Inter it is Ivan Perisic (7.08), Marcelo Brozovic (7.07) and Kwadwo Asamoah (6.99). Whilst for Napoli it includes Insigne (7.23), Mertens (7.18) and Fabian Ruiz (7.13).
