Top Two Clash! – Italian Football News 12 Feb 22

It’s second versus first in Serie A tonight as Napoli host leaders Inter.

It’s a big weekend in Serie A with four of the top five facing up against each other.

First up, and certainly the biggest game of this round is in Naples where second-place Napoli host leaders Inter with just a point between the two teams, although Inter do have a game in hand over the Neapolitans.

Napoli have for years been Italy’s nearly men, most notably in 2018 when a stunning injury-time Koulibaly header in Turin gave them a win over Juventus to leap frog them in the league with three games to go but Napoli collapsed and Juve won the title again.

Since then, Napoli have fallen away and have finished outside the top four but this season, they started spectacularly well, winning their first 8 games until they fell away in November.

But they refuse to written out of the title race, despite all talk being of which Milan club will win the scudetto.

Inter took a few weeks to find their feet under new coach Simone Inzaghi, but very quickly became the dominant force in Serie A and even look better than they did under Conte last season.

Koulibaly returns to the Napoli defence after lifting the Africa Cup of Nations and Osimhen is available to start. Tonight’s game will not decide the scudetto but it will determine if Napoli have the belief required to go for the title.

That’s all from us today, remember to support us via a donation on the Fountain podcast app!

Until tomorrow, this is Andrew saying “arrivederci, ragazzi, a domani!”
