Napoli vs Inter: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online

Napoli may be the champions but Inter are in the better form and have a lot more to play for as the two sides get ready to face each other on Matchday 36 in Serie A.


The Serie A Matchday 36 clash between Napoli and Inter is a very unusual one to call given the current situations of the two sides. There is no doubt that Napoli are a better team than Inter, but the Nerazzurri may well be the favourites.

Inter are in a superb patch of form and are buoyed by their progression to the Champions League final after beating AC Milan 1-0 in the Champions League semi-final second leg.

As for Napoli, with the Scudetto already wrapped up, the Partenopei are not as fierce as they were earlier in the season. They were beaten 2-0 by Monza last weekend and Inter have a lot more to play for.
