Inter Milan will take on Napoli in the Serie A at the San Siro on Sunday.

Where to Watch

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm BST. Live coverage of the match will be available on BT Sport 1.

Overview

Inter Milan welcome Napoli to the San Siro on Sunday and will hope to get their season under way after struggling in the opening six games of the campaign.

The Serie A giants find themselves in 10th place after six games and will also want to get back to winning ways to erase the disappointing loss to Fiorentina prior to the international break.

Walter Mazzarri is under immense pressure to get his team to start performing to their full potential following back-to-back losses. The manager is on shaky ground and one more loss could see him sacked by owner Erick Thohir.

Inter are struggling with injury problems, with many players either ruled out or doubtful for the big clash.

Meanwhile, Rafa Benitez's men have recovered slightly following a slow start to the season and have now picked three wins on the trot to see them rise up to seventh place in the Serie A table. It is still not the level expected of the club and they will have to step it up in the coming weeks.

The former Inter Milan manager will be keen to get one over his former club, which sacked him after just six months at the helm. Napoli have a very good record against Inter having won four of the last six encounters between the two sides, with the San Siro outfit having won just once.

Napoli have no injury concerns and Benitez will have a full squad at his disposal. It is believed that the Naples club's president Aurelio De Laurentiis has offered the players a bonus if they beat Inter on Sunday.
