Inter vs. Napoli: 5 Things We Learned
Luca Bruno

For all their chances, Napoli managed to put just a single shot on net. They tore through the field, quick on the counter and then fizzled out.

Inter had just as much trouble: They responded with counterpunches of their own, only to miss the target or run into dead ends. Both teams attempted 14 shots, per, and neither scored in a goalless draw at San Siro on Saturday.

It was an exercise in futility. Napoli did some good work in midfield, with Gokhan Inler and Lorenzo Insigne launching balls from deep within. But the forwards blew all the momentum in the final third. Jose Callejon shot wide from close range, and Gonzalo Higuain could not get the ball to settle at his feet.

On the opposite side, Rodrigo Palacio did a lot of the creating and running for Inter, working his way into goalscoring positions. He looked exhausted by the end.

The game was eventful for a 0-0 tie. Here are a few things to remember from the match.
