21 October at 19:45
Welcome to our live coverage of Napoli-Inter. This is what you need to know ahead of the kick-off.
Inter have won only one of their last nine Serie A games against Napoli (D3 L5).
Inter’s last win at the San Paolo was in October 1997 – since then the hosts have won eight times, drawing three.
Napoli are on a run of 13 consecutive wins in Serie A between this and last season – only Juventus (15) and Inter (17) have done better in the top-flight.
Inter are unbeaten in their last 10 league fixtures (W9 D1) – their best run in Serie A since September 2010.
Napoli have the best attack of this competition (26 goals) – this is the best goal scoring performance by a Serie A team after eight match-days since Juve had scored 27 in 1959/60.
This is the first time ever that the top-two sides combined have a total of 46 points after eight rounds in Serie A (Napoli 24 and Inter 22).
The top-nine players with the most passes completed in this competition belong to either Napoli or Inter.
José Callejón has scored four goals in eight Serie A appearances against Inter – his favourite opponent in this competition.
Mauro Icardi has netted two goals against Napoli in Serie A. He has averaged a goal every 20 touches in this campaign – the best ratio amongst those who’ve scored at least five goals in Europe’s top-5 leagues this term.

Lorenzo Insigne has scored only one goal in nine league games against Inter so far. However, he’s been involved in 13 goals in his last 12 Serie A appearances between this and last season (scoring seven and making six assists).
