Napoli and Inter will face each other on the ground of the Diego Armando Maradona stadium at 18:00 on Sunday 21 May.

Of the two teams, Inter is certainly the one that has more goals at stake, given the not yet mathematical qualification in the Champions League and the imminent final in this last competition.

Below is our pre-match analysis with the state of the injured.

State of form of Napoli

Napoli are champions of Italy and, therefore, from now until the end of the championship they will occupy the first place in Serie A.

During the last 5 games, the Neapolitans won 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss, scoring 4 goals and conceding as many. In the last period, the physical decline of Spalletti's team has been conspicuous, but it's understandable.

Napoli will not be able to count on Lush and Mario Rui. Likely absent too osimhen e Kvaratskhelia.

State of form of Inter

Inter occupies the 3th position in Serie A with 66 points. Since Milan are in 5th position with 61 points, one victory will be enough for the neroazzurri to conquer the mathematical qualification in the Champions League.

During the last 5 games, Inter was a real battleship. The Nerazzurri brought home 5 wins, scoring 15 goals and conceding just 2.

Inter's list of injured players is long. Inzaghi will not be able to count on Carboni, Dalbert, Mkhitaryan, Skriniar and Zanotti.

What to expect and the premises of Napoli – Inter

The last 5 meetings between Napoli and Inter have seen the nerazzurri triumph 3 times and 2 draws. Spalletti's Napoli, despite the early closure of the season, should have a burst of pride and break this negative streak against Inter.

It must be said that Inzaghi's team is already undergoing technical tests for the Champions League final and, therefore, could play conservatively.
