INT vs NAP Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Perhaps the biggest festive day encounter in Europe on Boxing Day as two giants of Italian football collide in Serie A when Inter Milan host Napoli in a crunch league match at San Siro, in Milan, on Wednesday night (IST).
Everything was looking good for Inter Milan just a few weeks ago. They had a bridgeable gap against leaders Juventus and also their Champions League fate was in their own hands.
But everything unravelled like a nightmarish script in a matter of weeks. Now the season is on the cusp of utter failure. Everything the manager Luciano Spalletti built from the last season is now threatening to go back to its very foundation.
Inter are out of the Champions League and you may call this something as expected considering the group had Barcelona and a high-performing Tottenham Hotspur side. But even after losing to Spurs at Wembley, the Nerazzurri only needed to win the home clash against PSV to secure their qualification to the knockout rounds. And they scuppered as they could only draw 1-1 at San Siro.
The 18-time Italian Champions are almost running on thin lines as far as title challenge is concerned, having fallen behind by a massive 16 points after just 17 games into the new season.
Now it’s the battle for the top-four which Spalletti should win or his own position at the club could come under serious danger.
Napoli remain the only side to have a realistic chance of winning the prestigious Scudetto. As things stand, they are just eight points behind Juventus coming into this match.
The gap may look more than eight points considering the form of Massimiliano Allegri’s men, but it gives hope to Napoli because every team endures a lean period in a campaign and the Old Lady are yet to face their own this season. However, Napoli must maintain pressure with results of their own, and the trip to Milan is one such game where a positive result could give the side a huge lift in the title race.
Also, Carlo Ancelotti will be itching for a win in this game as this is the first time he returns to San Siro after leaving AC Milan. His incredible success with the Rossoneri is etched in history books and he may be extra motivated to strike a hammer blow to Inter’s own Champions League hopes.
Napoli are the perfect challenge for Juventus in every conceivable manner. They have lost twice this season (2nd fewest), have scored the joint-most goals and they have also conceded the joint lowest goals as well. Also, the Naples are on a three-game winning streak and have kept clean sheets in four of their last five league games.

INT vs NAP Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
The biggest fixture on Boxing Day in Serie A this season. Both the teams need to win the win the match while the draw won’t be helping either team in any possible way.
Icardi and Insigne- arguably the focal points for both Inter and Napoli respectively. While Politano and Mario will be in the middle for Milan. Callejon is a proven star for Ancelotti.
At the back, Napoli don’t look beyond Koulibaly, and Ambrosio gives the width to Inter.
We have Perisic here playing as a captain while Hamsik can do the damage from any position. Not many changes in other positions.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Napoli will head into this game high on confidence and would take heart from their recent history against Inter Milan. The Naples have lost just one game in the last 11 encounters against Inter, winning five times.
An away win is our call.
