Inter Milan v Napoli
Stadio Giuseppe Meazza “San Siro”
5th January, 01:15 a.m.
The Italian Serie A returns tonight, post-World Cup, with a mouth-watering clash as league leaders Napoli face the Nerazzuri at San Siro.
The league leaders, Napoli, would be looking to tighten their grip on the Scudetto, a title that their fans have been patiently awaiting for ages.
The bluer side of the Milan, however, would be looking to regain their momentum after an unconvincing start in the first half of the season. A win tonight against the table-toppers would be a strong statement to the rest of the sides in Serie A.
The spotlight would once again be on Georgian wonderkid Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who has been in fantastic form since joining Napoli from Dinamo Batumi, and he would be supported up front by the tenacious Nigerian, who has perfectly linked up with his partner thus far, netting nine goals.
Inter’s Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku would be looking to regain his lost confidence after a forgettable world cup last month, and he would most likely be partnering with Edin Dzeko, who was great prior to the world cup, forcing world cup winner Lautaro Martinez to start from the bench.
