Only 5 games to go before Inter is crowned champions of Serie A while Napoli is lingering in the bottom half of the league. Although this game between Napoli and Inter might not have the crucial factor, it will still be in both teams’ interest to gain points to secure their goals when May comes around. Inter has been in the headlines of the press, not for the title it will win but for the problem regarding the duo stricken strikers Brazilian Adriano and Swedish Zlatan Ibrahimovic. So winning the title could spell a new team for Jose Mourinho’s upcoming season.
Inter has recently hit the press for all the wrong reasons and rightly so because there is no doubt that they will win their 2009 Serie A title. What can go wrong when things are going so well is that some players go and play like wild child. Brazilian Adriano who had failed to return to Italy after an international duty at the beginning of the month and Inter simply cut their ties with him by terminating his contract. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has announced on TV that he wants to try something new. Read into what you want of that quote as Inter looks like ending the season maybe we a new squad for the next season. Back to the game against Napoli, Jose Mourinho is looking to maintain their 10-point advantage at the top of Serie A and he might just send Barotelli upfront and prove that life can be good without the top players. Inter will be without Maicon, Sulley Muntari, Nelson Rivas and Hernan Crespo.
Napoli’s Boss Roberto Donadoni will put on a good show for the Napoli’s home crowd tomorrow night’s evening game. It does seem that the season is already over as Napoli will surely avoid relegation but it will not be enough to get anywhere else other than the bottom half. Donadoni will probably concentrate in working with the players toward the new season and brave on with his minimal squad depth. That is unless the check books become available during the summer. The only player that might not feature against Inter is defender Paolo Cannavaro as he is unavailable through suspension
There is no such thing as winning the title before the fat lady has sung. The old lady in Juventus has not given up yet so Inter won’t be celebrating yet. Inter can boost that they have a strong team without the availability of those two problematic strikers but maybe just enough to prevent Inter from winning at Napoli. A draw would be ideal for both teams and mybet is offering 3.00 for a draw.
