The last Coppa Italia quarter final will see the defending Champions Napoli take on Inter Milan in Naples. Napoli have come out of the winter break looking like a team ready to push on for the second half of the season and Rafa Benitez side beat Lazio away and managed to make it four wins on the bounce when beating Chievo at the weekend. The signing of Gabbiadini seems a smart decision now as he netted the winner against Chievo. With Higuain, Callejon, Hamsik and Gabbiadini along with Mertens there is a glut of attacking talent here at Benitez disposal.
Inter Milan have had the opposite kind of restart to the season as they have managed only one league win in four games since the restart. Roberto Mancini has brought in some good players on loan with Podolski from Arsenal and Shaqiri from Bayern arriving. Icardi is the main man up front but Inter will need more from their new boys if they are to save this season as they are currently in thirteenth in the league table. Mancini is not in an enviable position here but the end of this season maybe more about stabilising the club and looking to the future than trying to win now. A deep run in the Coppa Italia though may be a pleasant distraction for the fans that I expect Inter to go all out for.
Taking both teams to score here. I think we'll have an open attacking game and with both teams having some exceptional attacking talents I would think this one also goes over the 2.5 mark.
