This weeks big clash in Serie A takes place at the San Siro as current league leaders Napoli travel to Milan to tackle fifth placed Inter.

No real injury concerns for either side here, with Inter having a fully fit squad to choose from and Napoli only expected to be without the longer term injury victims, Faouzi Ghoulam and Vlad Chiriches.

Napoli have been a joy to watch going forward this season and look like scoring almost every time they venture forward. Things did rather fall apart at the back last time out though with the Gli Azzuri suffering a surprise 2 - 4 defeat at home to Roma. They will be keen to bounce back here.

Napoli have been nothing short of magnificent on their travels in Serie A so far this term, winning 12 of 13 on the road, with the only dropped points coming when drawing at lowly Chievo.

Inter have likewise been solid at the San Siro though, only losing one of fourteen. Inter did manage to hold Napoli to a 0-0 draw in the reverse fixture, but Napoli seem ideally suited to playing away from home, with their counter-attacking ability often proving a devastating weapon. Possibly needing to win this to return to the Serie A summit they can record another road win, although we expect this one will be tight.

Prediction: Inter Milan 1 - 2 Napoli
