Walter Mazzarri will count on the Argentina attacker to provide the firepower upfront in the absence of leading scorer Edinson Cavani. Will look to link up with Marek Hamsik in order to trouble Inter's leaky back line.

G. Pazzini

Position: Attacker

Games: 0

  • 0
The Italy striker has three goals in his last two Serie A matches and boasts nine in total since joining Inter in the winter transfer window. He will provide the goalscoring punch alongside Samuel Eto'o on Sunday.

Editor's Prediction

Inter can clinch second place with a draw on Sunday against Napoli. The Nerazzurri have been less than impressive on their road travels but will do enough to earn a share of the spoils at the San Paolo.
