Sports Mole looks ahead to Sunday night's Serie A clash between Napoli and Inter Milan.

Sunday night sees in-form Napoli welcome Inter Milan to the Stadio San Paolo in Serie A.

The hosts have won five matches in a six-game unbeaten stretch to strengthen their grip on second place ahead of AC Milan.

They are able to welcome back striker Edinson Cavani, who missed last week's win at Pescara because of suspension.

The visitors will be without veteran Javier Zanetti, who snapped his Achilles tendon in last week's defeat at Palermo to worsen the Nerazzurri's injury woes.

Coach Andrea Stramaccioni could, however, welcome back the trio of Fredy Guarin, Antonio Cassano and Rodrigo Palacio, who have been out with injury.

Back in December when the reverse fixture took place, it was Inter who claimed the points to move themselves into second place. They now lie seventh.
