Stadio San Paolo, Naples (Italy) will be hosting on Sunday, 15 December 2013, an Italian Serie A match between SSC Napoli and Inter Milan. The match referee will be P. Tagliavento.‎ 
Napoli are third in the Serie A table, one place above Inter, but have a four point lead over them in the standings. Partenopei still believe that they can win Scudetto this season, while Nerazzurri are eyeing a top-three finish
Napoli became the first team in Champions League history to collect 12 points and still not make it through the group stage.  Their form hasn't been great in Serie A recently.  The 3-3 draw against Udinese saw them lose more points at the top and given the pace set by Juventus and Roma it looks likely that they can only hope to settle for third spot in Serie A this season.Zuniga, Mesto and Hamsik are still sidelined with injuries, while Pandev and Behrami are both doubtful and the duo will be assessed on the match day.  Dries Mertens is favourite over Lorenzo Insigne to play on the wing, while José Callejon should is expected to play.
Probable lineups Napoli: Reina – Maggio, Albiol, Britos, Armero – Inler, Behrami – Callejon, Insigne, Mertens – Higuain.
Inter Milan are unbeaten in their last eight Serie A fixtures, but have drawn their last three league games to fall 12 points behind leaders Juventus. Inter have only won once at the San Paolo in their last nine attempts, requiring penalties to secure victory in a Coppa Italia clash two years ago.
Inter Milan have no fresh injury worries. Nagatomo will likely replace
while Jonathan will start on the opposite side of midfield. Guarin is expected to shake off a knock suffered in training on Wednesday. Rodrigo Palacio is likely to keep his place up front as the only centre forward, mIlito is out while Icardi will sit on the bench.
Both teams have had problems at the back lately, each conceding three goals in their most recent Serie A game. Napoli have scored at least 2 goals in 11 of their last 13 home matches in Serie A.
Probable lineups Inter Milan: Handanovic – Campagnaro, Ranocchia, Juan – Jonathan, Taider, Cambiasso, Nagatomo – Guarin, Alvarez – Palacio.
