After securing a date with Manchester City in the Champions League final, Inter Milan will look to guarantee themselves a place in the competition next year when they travel to Naples to face Serie A champions, Napoli.
The hosts may have secured the Scudetto, but they come into this tie poorly, having won just two of their last eight games in all competitions (D4, L2). The most recent in that sequence was a 2-0 away loss to Monza.
Despite this, the Azzurri have a chance to make a bit of history here as a win over Inter will mean that they have won 19 different Serie opponents in a single season for the first time in their history.
Napoli fans will head to Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, hoping their side will extend a proud H2H record of just one defeat in 16 home league meetings (W9, D6).
Inter beat their fierce rivals 1-0 last Tuesday to secure a place in the Champions League final. That win was their eighth consecutive win in all competitions.
While their final in Istanbul will likely take the bulk of their attention, there’s still the small matter of wrapping up a top-four Serie A finish to contend with.
Sitting in third with a five-point gap to fifth ahead of the round, Simone Inzaghi’s side will want to continue their fine league form of five-straight wins to keep the chasers at bay.
That run is Inter’s longest run of consecutive Serie A wins in a single season since they registered eight back in January of last year. While they could match that streak if they win their remaining games of this campaign, their three defeats against fellow current top-five Serie A sides on the road this term highlights how that’s likely to be a tough feat to achieve.
