Milan will host Napoli
Fans of Italian football will be watching at Wednesday when Inter Milan will host Napoli in a first 1/2-final game from the Coppa Italia. Both teams are very close to reaching the final, but just one of them will do it. Let’s talk about this intriguing tie in our football prediction tips.
Inter Milan are chasing their 8th win in the competition in their history. For the last time the Nerazzurri won the Coppa in 2011. This was also their last appearance at the final so far. Nine years is a lot of waiting, so maybe it’s time for the Nerazzurri to do it again?
It is an interesting fact that despite of his very successful stint at Juventus, Inter’s manager Antonio Conte have never won the Coppa Italia so far. This gives the tactician a motivation to reach the final in May and challenge for the trophy. Nobody can argue that Antonio Conte is a manager who loves winning trophies.
In the previous face Inter Milan played Fiorentina in one game at the San Siro and went through after a 2-1 win. Antonio Candreva and Nicolo Barella scored for the hosts.
Napoli are chasing their 10th final in the Coppa Italia so far. The Azzurri have won the competition five times so far. For the last time they lifted the trophy in 2015. For Napoli this season is pretty difficult so far and the team is still adapting to the new head coach Gennaro Gattuso. Lately the Azzurri are showing some improvement, so it’d be interesting to see them against Inter Milan on Wednesday.
In our football prediction tips we think that both Inter Milan and Napoli will approach this game as a very strategical one, because they will face again at the San Paolo in the second leg. We don’t think that the tie is going to be decided on Wednesday, but one of the teams could land some advantage.
