Facing Napoli at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Monday (4/12/2023) in the early hours WIB, Inter faced early pressure as Napoli created more opportunities in the initial stages of the game.

However, Inter broke the deadlock just a minute before the end of normal time with a long-range strike from Hakan Calhanoglu. In the second half, Inter comfortably controlled the game.

Despite Napoli having more ball possession, Inter proved lethal on the counter-attack. Two more goals were added in the second half, courtesy of Nicolo Barella in the 61st minute and Marcus Thuram in the 85th minute.

Inter won 3-0, reclaiming the top spot in the Serie A standings from Juventus, which they had held for the past 48 hours. Inter now boasts 35 points from 14 matches, a two-point lead over Juventus in second place.

Coach Simone Inzaghi expressed his satisfaction with Inter’s performance, highlighting their ability to control the game effectively and prevent Napoli from running rampant. Despite Napoli creating 15 attempts compared to Inter’s 11, the home team managed only four shots on target.

Even their expected goals ratio was a mere 0.57, significantly lower than Inter’s 2.69. This is evidence of Inzaghi’s effective strategy.

“We started the first half well, and Thuram’s goal was disallowed for a narrow offside decision,” Inzaghi told DAZN.

“Napoli is the champion of Italy, and we took risks by letting Politano create chances, and Sommer saved the goal, but the players deserve it, and I embrace them one by one.”

“This is our fifth away game out of the last six, the third in a week, and we needed a performance like this. After leading 2-0, we fully controlled the game.”

“A victory like this in Naples is very satisfying, but we know the league is only 14 weeks old, and the road is still long.”
