On Saturday, the 13th of June will be the second leg of the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia where Neapolitan Napoli will play against Milan “inter”. The match will take place in Naples, at the stadium “San Paolo”, beginning at 22:00.
The first match took place four months ago, on February 12, and then the team Gennaro Gattuso claimed an away win with the score 1:0. This result allows the Neapolitans to count on a draw at home, which would be akin to victory, and bring them to the finals.
However, inter is also not so bad. Nerazzurri just need to win with any score (it is highly desirable, scoring twice to do without overtime and penalties) that they are quite capable.
The upcoming match will be the second in Italy after the restart of the season. The first also was part of the 1/2 final of the Cup of Italy, where in a parallel match “Juventus” and “Milan” on the eve competed for a place in the final thanks to away goals, the voucher went to Juventus. Of course, in connection with the epidemic situation, while the fans can’t visit the stadiums, the matches are played in front of empty stands.
The status of “inter” before the quarantine was far from optimal, so for the players of Antonio Conte forced pause has the potential to have a positive effect if the return to the official matches of the “snake” will be celebrated in the final of the national Cup. Napoli, on the contrary, just before the quarantine began to pick up speed after a protracted series of bad results.
In the championship of Italy “inter” takes the third place behind leaders Juventus by 9 points with a match in hand. Napoli have only sixth position and it does Ghost a chance to take a place in the Champions League, after reaching the fourth Atalanta has 9 points more and one match played less.
Bookmakers do not see in the match as a clear favorite, but a little more inclined to the victory of “inter”. In this connection it is profitable to bet on a draw outcome of the meeting with a coefficient of 3.64.
