What are the chances for Matheus Doria to be called up by Martino to play for El Tri?

The Neapolitan team was outplayed by the Viola, who, despite playing as visitors, came out on top and ended up beating the home side thanks to goals from Nico Gonzalez, Ikoné, and Arthur Cabral. For Napoli, Dries Mertens and Victor Osimhen scored. Chucky Lozano came on in the second half in place of Mateo Politano, but could not help to avoid defeat.

On the other hand, Inter beat Hellas Verona 2-0 with goals from Edin Dzeko and Nicolo Barela to tie Napoli on points, but on goal difference, they are ahead of Chucky's team. In addition, the Nerazzurri have a game in hand on Napoli and Milan, so if they win their pending game, they would move into first place.

Despite Inter's win, the team that remains in the first place is Milan, who drew against Torino and moved to 68 points. The Rossoneri were unable to increase their lead and after two consecutive draws, see their leadership threatened by their archrivals, who have a game in hand.

Can Napoli compete for Serie A?

Chucky Lozano's team is only two points behind the first place, so, taking into account that there are 6 rounds left, Spalletti's team could retake the lead without problems, however, they will have to have an almost perfect end to the tournament and hope that both Milan and Inter lose points in the final matches.

These are the teams that Napoli, Inter, and Milan will face in the final stretch of the season.
