The big game in Italy as Serie A gets back underway following the World Cup takes place at the San Siro. Inter Milan will be looking to pick up a third straight win, but they will be up against it, as they come up against the undefeated league leaders, Napoli.
Serie A Preview
It was a sensational start to the 2022-23 season for Napoli, and fans will already be daring to dream that they could win Serie A for the third time in their history. It would also be their first domestic league success since 1990. The Italian giants were by far the standout team in the first half of the campaign, as they won 13 of the 15 games that they played. They are the only team in Italy yet to suffer a defeat, and they had won their previous five before the break for the World Cup.
At present, Napoli sits eight points clear at the top of the standings, with AC Milan currently their nearest rivals in second. The Italian giants picked up a 3-2 win in their final game before the international break, with Victor Osimhen, Piotr Zielinski, and Eljf Elmas scoring the goals.
Inter Milan will be aware that their chances of winning the league title this term are slim, but at the very least, they will be expected to finish in the Champions League spots. They come into this fixture sitting fifth in the standings, but they could move up to fourth with a victory at the San Siro.
Inter has won four of their previous five league games, and they will be looking for a third straight win after winning back-to-back fixtures. The latest of their win was recorded on the road against Atalanta in the middle of November. Edin Dzeko scored twice in that win, but their chances in the second half of the campaign will be boosted by the return to fitness of Romelu Lukaku.
