Is this Napoli’s year

One would think a club that has had the talents of the likes of Diego Maradona, Gianfranco Zola, Fabio Cannavaro, Edinson Cavani and Gonzalo Higuain in the past would have won more than two Scudettos. This is not the case as Napoli’s only Serie A titles were achieved in 1987 and 1990.

Gli Azzuri has been in the title race over the past few years and nothing would please their fans more than seeing Maurizio Sarri’s side win the league.

They have started the season strongly as they are top of the log with a perfect record after eight matches.

This weekend Napoli faces one of their title rivals in a match that could give an indication of how serious this challenge is. They face an Inter Milan side who are fresh off a win over their city rivals AC Milan, on Sunday.

Napoli and Inter square off live and exclusively on StarSat channel 245 (ST World Football). The match will be on Saturday, October 21, at 20:35.

Inter are second on the log and are the only other unbeaten side in the league, they have drawn once though.

With champions Juventus having a stuttering start to the season and losing to Lazio last weekend, both Napoli and Inter have an opportunity to establish early season dominance over their rivals.

Both teams will be hoping their front men continue with the good form they have shown so far this season. Mauro Icardi has already found the back of the net nine times for Inter while Dries Mertens has scored seven goals for Napoli.

A win for Napoli will give them a five point lead at the top of the table, while victory for Inter will put the Nerazzurri on top of the league standings.

Who will it be? Can Napoli maintain their perfect record? Or will Inter overtake them?

Catch all the action live and exclusive on StarSat channel 245 (ST World Football).
