Napoli v Inter Milan Betting Tips & Odds For Serie A Clash | Saturday 12th February
Inter Milan have being given the edge in the match betting for a crucial top-of-the-table clash v Napoli in Serie A on Saturday.
Saturday’s visitors lead the current standings by a point with a game in hand over Napoli and local rivals AC Milan, who scuppered their chances of racing clear in their bid for a second successive league title when coming from behind to win 2-1 in the Milan derby last weekend thanks to two late goals from former Arsenal man Olivier Giroud.
Inter Milan bounced back with a midweek cup win over Roma and this time they were thankful to an ex-Gunner as Alexis Sanchez fired in a stunning strike to seal a 2-0 victory over Jose Mourinho’s men to tee up a Milan derby showdown in the Coppa Italia semi-finals.
Back on league duty on Saturday evening, Sanchez has been boosted to 5/2 from 9/4 in the anytime goalscorer betting and now has three goals in three appearances having netted twice in Chile’s World Cup qualifier against Bolivia during the international break.
The more familiar partnership of Lautaro Martinez and Edin Dzeko may lead the line though and they are joint favourites in the first goalscorer betting at 5/1 apiece ahead of Napoli duo Dries Mertens and Victor Osimhen (both 11/2).
With 20 league goals between them this season, Dzeko and Martinez have made a significant contribution to Inter’s league-high haul of 54 goals in 23 games this season.
But their task may be made more difficult this weekend when they come up against the meanest defence in the whole division as Napoli have leaked only 16 goals from their 24 matches so far.
A draw has therefore been a popular choice this week at 12/5, while Inter are marginally ahead with punters at 6/4 should there be a winner to Napoli’s 17/10.
The hosts go into this crunch match on a four-game winning run in the league with only one goal conceded across those four, so something has to give in a match that could well provide a big clue as to the destination of this season’s Serie A title.
