Napoli – Inter Milan [Prediction]

May 15, 2011 1 Betting, Soccer, Sports

Prediction: Scoreless draw

Stake: 19/20 and 19/20

Match date: May 15

Competition: Serie A

Stadium: San Paolo, Napoli


This last game of Serie A sees two top-teams fight for glory (and just glory since there’s not much left to change in the table) tonight. The 2nd team in Serie A and the former champions of Italy, Inter Milan will travel to Napoli tonight to meet SSC Napoli, the 3rd team in the Italian championship. A prediction here is fairly easy (I would say), considering both teams’ record on San Paolo venue. But I’ll discuss soccer tips a bit later.

Ahead of tonight’s game there have been announced some big-name absentees from both sides. For Napoli Edinson Cavani and Giuseppe Mascara are not playing because both are banned. For Inter, Dutchman Wesley Sneijder is out with an injury for sure, while Dejan Stankovic is doubtful.

Looking at both teams’ form, Inter is doing much better, having won their last 3 games. Napoli lost 3 out of their last 4 games, including a shameful defeat last time against Lecce. The problem with Inter is that they’re reluctant to score away, especially when playing Napoli. They haven’t scored at all in Naples during Inter’s last four encounters with SSC Napoli. And now that two important forwards are out of their squad, I don’t see the Neroazzurri do much better than before.

I predict a scoreless draw and I’m willing to stake 2 units for a draw on Bwin at 19/20 odds. A bet on either team is much more attractive (both have the same odds at 5/2), but it’s unlikely that this game will have a winner. Also, I’m going for an Under 2.5 goals bet for 1 unit at 19/20 odds. LET THE GAME BEGIN!!
