ITALIAN SERIE A


Parma 18:30 Atalanta 
Inter Milan 20:45 Napoli  

Inter Milan ran out of hope to win Serie A when they host Napoli in the penultimate match of the 2019-20 domestic campaign on Tuesday night. Coach Antonio Conte's side moved up to 2nd place after a 3-0 victory at Genova on Saturday, while Napoli beat Sassuolo on the same night to keep the 7th position.↔





Inter were once again expected to be without the services of Matias Vecino and Stefano Sensi due to injuries, but fellow midfielder Nicolo Barella served a 1-match ban and is now ready to return to midfield. Conte is expected to shuffle his squad from the match on Saturday, with Antonio Candreva, Ashley Young and Stefan de Vrij all likely to return from the beginning. Despite this, Sanchez can be named on the bench despite his impressive form, with Lautaro Martinez and Lukaku going on to be the pair of strikers supported by Christian Eriksen. Romelu Lukaku scored twice and Alexis Sanchez continued impressive form when Inter beat Genova with 3 goals on Saturday night to rise above Atalanta BC to take 2nd place in the table.

For Napoli, Gattuso have no new injury concerns before the match, and it will be no surprise to see the same starting XI have won against Sassuolo. Dries Mertens and Allan are probably the two players who are most likely to be knocked out of the starting lineup, but Arkadiusz Milik can keep his position with Jose Callejon and Lorenzo Insigne in attack. Rumors surrounding the future of center-back Kalidou Kouilbaly continue but the Senegal international will once again be in defense for the visitors. Meanwhile, Napoli will not be in the Champions League next season, at least not through Serie A, and instead are in the battle with AC Milan and Rome for the fifth place. is a disappointing season for the club but Gennaro Gattuso's team are 7th in the standings, 1 point behind Milan is 6th and 2 points behind Roma is 5th, who host Fiorentina on Sunday night. Napoli suffered a 2-1 defeat against Parma in their last away away match on July 22 but made a strong comeback by beating Sassuolo on Saturday night, with Elseid Hysaj and Allan on the scoreboard.
