Inter Milan will host Napoli in the first leg of the 2019/20 Coppa Italia semifinal on Wednesday (2/12/2020).
Inter needs to maximize the game at the San Siro if they want to open up opportunities to qualify for the ultimate party.
Because the second leg at San Paolo, early March, will not be easy. Inter also must win as much as possible positive capital at home.
Inter are currently in the top form. In Serie A last weekend, without injured goalkeeper and captain Samir Handanovic, Antonio Conte’s men won a spectacular derby against AC Milan.
Left behind 0-2 in the first round, they rose in the second round and finally won 4-2 through goals from Marcelo Brozovic, Matias Vecino, Stefan de Vrij, and Romelu Lukaku.
With these results, it means that Inter has always won in the three most recent matches in all competitions, and are untouched by defeat in the last ten matches.
Against Napoli, Lautaro Martinez will return to Inter’s starting line-up. The Argentine striker has missed Inter’s last two matches in Serie A due to suspension. Christian Eriksen, who performed quite well in the derby despite coming off the bench, also had the chance to play from the early minutes.
In contrast to Inter, Napoli has just experienced an anticlimax. Gennaro Gattuso’s foster children lost 2-3 at home to Lecce in Serie A last weekend.
Before that, they had won three consecutive wins. After beating Lazio 1-0 through Lorenzo Insigne’s lone goal in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals, Napoli defeated Juventus 2-1 and Sampdoria 4-2 in Serie A.
However, the positive pace was stopped because of the poor performance against Lecce at San Paolo.
Inter and Napoli have already met once in Serie A this season, which is in the 18th week. The match was played at Napoli, and Inter won 3-1. At that time, Napoli had been trained by Gattuso.
Inter won through a pair of goals from Lukaku and a goal from Lautaro Martinez. Meanwhile, a Napoli goal was scored by Arkadiusz Milik.
This time, Inter is favorite to beat Napoli again.
