Competition: Serie A
Market: Romelu Lukaku to score anytime
Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport
In what is a real battle between two Italian giants, Inter Milan will be making their final Serie A appearance at the San Siro this season when they host Napoli on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, bouncing back from their back-to-back stalemates against Roma and Fiorentina, I Nerazzurri put in a rampant display over the weekend and have secured a Champions League return with time to spare. Picking up a thumping 3-0 romp away at Genoa on Saturday, Antonio Conte’s side are unbeaten in their last six Serie A appearances. Landing 3-1 and 4-0 victories against Torino and relegation scrappers SPAL earlier in the month, the one-time Chelsea boss will be hugely excited by Romelu Lukaku’s individual end to the campaign. Bagging a brace on the road over the weekend, their leading marksman has continued to shine since making the move from Old Trafford. With three in his last three Serie A outings, the Belgium ace has recorded 33 goals for club and country this season.
As for the visitors, while on paper it might show that Napoli picked up a 2-0 win against Sassuolo over the weekend, it doesn’t quite tell the whole story. Watching Saturday’s guests having four goals ruled out by VAR, the Light Blues have shown a string of issues at the back after returning from the enforced break. While former AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso might have seen his side lift the Coppa Italia last month, Napoli have now managed to land just a single clean sheet over their past nine Serie A contests. With that run highlighted by a shock 2-1 defeat away at a struggling Parma, the former Italy midfielder will be concerned by his side’s recent inconsistencies on the road. Slipping back out of the European spots and collecting just four points over their last four matchups away from the Stadio San Paolo, Lukaku should be confident of extending on his tally in midweek.
