Milan would love to push aside one of their competitors

It is almost deja vu all over again for Milan as they blew their lead last season and the same might happen again this year. In fact, Serie A this season is so close at the top that a defeat could lose the team so much ground. Notably, after yet another incredible start to their season, the Rossoneri had a three-match winless spell. During that spell, Milan couldn’t take advantage of Napoli’s losses to clinch the top of the league.

Two wins from their last six matches made the Rossoneri at least cling to their second position. And with still more than half the season to play, there is all to play for. Markedly, two matches in which Milan conceded seven goals, was their worst defensive performance of the season. However, boss Stefano Pioli hopes that spell is over and will rely on his attack that scored in every match this season.

Napoli can’t afford to lose any more points

Nobody understands what is happening to Napoli after their incredible start to the season. However, one thing is for sure, they have to get back that form quickly before they lose any chance of competing for the scudetto. Tactically speaking, Napoli’s style of play is exposed to other teams and they are able to break down their intensive pressure. And that was the case in the last match against Empoli. 

Uncharacteristically, Napoli lost three matches in their last five outings which left them to crumble and lose their lead at the top. Hence, the Blues and Spaletti have a chance to prove themselves in San Siro. A win here will keep Napoli intact with the top three. Otherwise, Spaletti’s team will be six or seven points behind Inter and Milan. Hence it is crucial that Napoli make their best to get back with a victory from Milan.

AC Milan vs Napoli Prediction

Considering Napoli’s recent results, the bookies find Milan the favorites to win this match with odds of 2.29. However, everything is possible since both teams will play to win. And that will lead both Spaletti and Pioli to do their best to neutralize their opponents’ key players.

As a result, we might see a very tactical display from both teams which in turn will limit the goal chances on both ends. However, both Milan and Napoli play attacking football and have many offensive strengths like Ibrahimovich, Insigne and others.

According to the stats, there is a 66% chance for under 3.5 goals to be scored. Moreover, there is a 75% chance for a Milan win and 63% for a Napoli win. For that, we will back an under 3.5 goal combined with a double chance for any of Milan or Napoli’s win.
