Napoli v Inter Milan Preview, Coppa Italia Quarter Final, Wednesday 4th February 2015.

Napoli secured their place in this quarter final showdown with Inter Milan after winning a nail biting penalty shoot-out against Udinese in the last round. Both sides were deadlocked at 1-1 come full time and it did look as if Napoli were going to win during extra time after Hamsik put his side in front 2-1 on the 99th minute mark, but Udinese scored to make it 2-2 on 104mins to take the tie into a penalty shoot-out which Napoli eventually won.

Inter Milan left it late to secure their place in this quarter final match, but goals on 71mins from Shaqiri and Icardi on 87mins was enough to send Sampdoria crashing out of the tournament to set up this exciting match on wednesday night at the Stadio San Paolo.

Napoli v Inter Milan Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Both of these clubs will be desperate to win some sort of silver wear this season and with Juventus streets ahead in the Serie A league table, this tournament does represent a good chance to do so.

Napoli have the all important home advantage and do head into this game as the team in the better form of late as although they did need a penalty shoot-out to progress through to this stage of the tournament, they have won their last three league games on the bounce and for me do look the more likely winners.

Inter Milan had no real problems booking their place in this quarter final match as they comfortably beat Sampdoria 2-0, but they did leave it late, with both of those goals coming after 70mins and with their form in the league showing two defeats on the bounce, the confidence will obviously be lacking in the squad.

The average goals per game statistics are expecting this match to see a minimum of two goals scored and if we look at the last five games between the two clubs played at the Stadio San Paolo, three of them has seen four of those has seen at least two goals scored.

As such my Banker prediction for this game is going to be for Napoli to Win as with the players high in confidence having won their last three games in the league on the bounce and Inter Milan having stuttered to two defeats on the bounce, the hosts do seem to have the clear advantage.

My Saver is going to be for Gonzalo Higuain to Score the First Goal as with the striker having scored twelve times in the league this season and six of those having been the first goal of the match, this does look value.
