What to expect and the premises of Napoli – Inter
The final of the 2023 Italian Super Cup promises to be an unmissable event for football fans, with the Serie A champions Napoli facing the trophy holders, Inter. Both teams brilliantly progressed to the semi-finals, scoring three goals each and setting the stage for an epic clash between two giants of Italian football.
Napoli, despite being the reigning Serie A champions, had a season up to this point with ups and downs. However, the team now has the opportunity to win three consecutive matches in all competitions for the first time this season, an objective which would underline a clear recovery. With only one success in the last nine direct clashes against Inter, Napoli will have to draw on all their champion determination to overcome a traditionally difficult opponent.
Inter, for its part, reaches the final after a convincing victory against Lazio in the semi-final, a match in which they showed excellent form and solid defence. Winners of the last two editions of the Italian Super Cup, the Nerazzurri aim to make history winning the trophy for the third time in a row, an achievement which would place them second in terms of number of victories in the competition, overtaking city rivals Milan.
They will be players to keep an eye on Alessio zerbin of Napoli, who impressed with a brace in the semi-final, and Frederick Dimarco Inter, who provided a key assist in the semi-final and has an excellent record in big matches, having scored in last year's final against Milan.
One statistic worth highlighting is Inter's ability to score the first goal of the match before half-time in six of their last seven matches, something Napoli will certainly have to take into account.
Napoli – Inter promises to be a high tension final, with both teams having a lot to prove and ambitions of lifting the trophy. It will be a clash between Napoli's determination to redeem a complicated season and Inter's firm intention to maintain their dominance in the Italian Super Cup.
