This season's iteration of Napoli have been nowhere near the levels of the side that Luciano Spalletti steered to the Scudetto last year. The Azzurri have lacked any consistency this term, dropping points against the likes of Genoa, Bologna and Empoli, while their home form has been a disaster, having failed to win four of their last five home league games.
The hosts earned a crucial morale-booster 2-1 win in Bergamo in Walter Mazzarri's first game of his second stint at the club as Eljif Elmas scored a late winner off the bench, but all the optimism went down the drain as they lost 4-2 to Real Madrid on Wednesday.
Inter, meanwhile, have set the pace at the top of the table since the start of the season, and they are coming off back-to-back draws against Juventus and Benfica in which they came from behind both times. However, Juve's 2-1 triumph over Monza on Friday night means the Nerazzurri will begin Sunday's match in second place, one point adrift of the summit place.

Team news & squads
Napoli team news
The newly appointed coach Walter Mazzarri is dealing with a real dilemma at left-back, with Uruguayan Mathias Olivera now ruled out for a couple of months after suffering a serious knee injury against Atalanta, joining fellow left-back Mario Rui (adductor) on the sidelines.
Juan Jesus is expected to fill the left-back role, while midfielder Piotr Zielinski is another major doubt after the Pole hobbled off at Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night. On the flip side, Victor Osimhen is ready to start in the league for the first time in almost two months after making cameo appearances in the last couple of games.

Inter are missing two defenders, as both Benjamin Pavard (knee) and Alessandro Bastoni (calf) have been ruled out of Sunday's game. Stefan de Vrij and the versatile Matteo Darmian will continue to partner Francesco Acerbi in the Nerazzurri's back three.

The visitors' attack will be led by Marcus Thuram and Lautaro Martinez, the latter of whom is leading the goal-scoring charts in Italy, and has scored eight goals in his last seven Serie A appearances.
