SuperSport is your #HomeOfFootball and the ultimate destination for lovers of ‘The Beautiful Game’.
The headline fixture from Serie A this weekend sees league leaders Internazionale head to Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on the evening of Sunday 18 April to face hosts Napoli.
While Inter are looking to push themselves closer to a first Serie A title in more than a decade (their last came back in 2010 as part of the treble they won under Jose Mourinho), Napoli are in a scrap for a berth in next season’s UEFA Champions League with Milan, Atalanta, Juventus, Lazio and Roma.
The Nerazzurri boss Antonio Conte knows that the Scudetto is close for his team, but has warned against complacency in this final stretch of the season.
“We know full well that Serie A is very difficult and every match is a battle to get the victory. The closer we get to the finish line, the clearer we can see the prize at the end,” said Conte. “Everyone is looking at that direction and we see it from a different angle to the others right now, but we still have it all to do. We’ve achieved nothing yet.”
Napoli manager Gennaro Gattuso wants his side to keep their heads down and “think of one opponent at a time” as they focus on their goal of finishing in the top four of the standings. The Neapolitans boss has come under fire from many quarters this season, but a Champions League qualification amidst such tough competition would be a fine achievement.
Elsewhere in Serie A this weekend, that top-four battle will see a key clash between Atalanta and Juventus in Bergamo, with even Bianconeri stalwart Giorgio Chiellini admitting that hopes of winning the league are gone.
“We have to stay united and do as little talking as possible. Let’s avoid proclamations, instead working day after day. We must go forward and try to do our best so we can achieve an important target for us, a Champions League place,” said the defender.
The round also sees Torino scrapping for their lives in a home clash with Roma, Lazio hosting Benevento and Milan looking to claim three vital points at home to Genoa, with Ivorian Franck Kessie set to play a major role for the Rossoneri once again.
