AC Milan will be back in Serie A action at the San Siro on Sunday as they take on in-form Napoli. The visitors will be looking to move into the top-four with a win on the road this weekend.
Serie A Preview
There isn’t much getting away from the fact that AC Milan now have a mountain to climb if they are to win the Serie A title this season. However, their target at the beginning of the season would have been to finish in a Champions League spot, and they are in a strong position to do just that. They have been able to recover since back to back losses by going three without defeat. Milan have won twice during that run of form, and picked up another big win last weekend against Hellas Verona. Diogo Dalot and Rade Krunic scored in the win away from home, which was an excellent defensive display by Milan. They allowed Verona just one shot on target in the game, and a win this weekend could see them stretch their advantage in the Champions League battle to ten points over Atalanta.
Napoli are still in the fight for Champions League football themselves, and have been in decent recent form. They haven’t lost in three games, and like Milan, have won two of their most recent fixtures. The gap isn’t getting smaller between themselves and the top-four though, as they are still three points away from Roma. They do have the added advantage of having a game in hand and a better goal difference though. Napoli beat Bologna in their last game in Serie A, with Lorenzo Insigne scoring twice, and Victor Osimhen also getting himself on the scoresheet.
AC Milan vs Napoli Head To Head
As you would imagine, the head to head record points to how evenly matched these two sides are. Milan and Napoli have each only won once in the last six meetings, with four of the games ending in draws. However, Milan haven’t beaten Napoli at the San Siro in the league since 2014.
AC Milan vs Napoli Prediction
Napoli and Milan will both be desperate for the win this weekend, but a draw also wouldn’t be the worst result in the world for either side. That means should the scores be level going into the final ten minutes, then both teams will be happy with the point. We can see that being the most likely outcome.
