Oh boy, another 90 mins of Acerbi LCB. I love the man but he is a calamity with the ball at his feet.

I'm well aware we have no other choices atm.

I'd play Augusto as LCB, he's played there quite a few times and didn't seem to crumble at all. Dunno why Limone thinks playing him ahead of Acerbi on LCB spot is a bigger risk while he's already trying to shoot himself in the foot by making a wrong choice IMHO.

Gobbi was never a threat offensively. Let's see Napoli's approach tonight. They will most likely create more than gobbi, and I guess they will try their best to take advantage of our vulnerability in left flank.

Which betting site are you using? We are definitely the favourite.
No shitty betting sites. Just a fact that we are playing against reigning champions of Italy on their turf, and its a hell of a turf. Why would we be a favorites? I really hope we can win this but this is a really tough one.

We are currently favourites and the line has moved even more that way as the weekend has gone on. It's not surprising either. Napoli is already out of the title race and has taken a pretty big step back this year and we have been scudetto favorites since the lines came out in the summer.

Why is this confusing to you?

Napoli needs to win next 2 and they are back in it. Lets not underestimate them. They still have dangerous mid and attack.
Bah the only reason why Napoli won the scudetto last year Is because inter had no depth and played the same players to death in 3 competitions. They were gassed by the end. That's not a problem this year.

We need to press hard and keep pressure on their backline. I think limiting their possession is key here even if that isn’t normally our game.

Should be an interesting match. I expect them to come with guns blazing right away, cause Inter tends to be still asleep unitl about 20min or so lately. " One trick" Politano vs Acerbi will be interesting along with the fitness of Osimhen. Need the midfield to dictate and control the tempo. Let's see if Inter doesn't make any aberrant passing in the midfield that could be fatal. Forza Inter.

Won't be easy with Oshimen starting. Let's hope we control the mid.

Would be extremely helpful if Dimarco could get some of his crosses right today, as for as Dumfries is concerned, just hope for the best.

My son turns 1 tomorrow so let's have a win for Inters newest fan in my family please!!

Excited for this game, 2 very strong line ups.

Standard Politano goal of course so I'll go 3-1, Thuram double and Hakan penalty, this ref loves a card too so possible red card incoming this game and the usual controversial VAR to help it along.

Gamedayyyyyyyy babbbyyyyyyyyy

Napoli won the scudetto because Oshimen was in great form and Kvicha was new in the league. It was too late, when the defenders learned how to handle him.
