It is a top of the Serie A table clash this weekend as league leader AC Milan visit third-place Napoli. The Rossoneri will play against former midfield battler and coach Gennaro Gattuso as his Napoli seek a sixth win of the campaign. The two Italian rivals are separated by just three points in the table as AC Milan sit at the top with 17 points from 21 possible.
Although AC Milan have not lost this season in seven games, they have slipped up in recent weeks. Serie A fixtures have come fast and furious along with games in the Europa League group stage. All of those fixtures have combined with AC Milan drawing two of their last three league matches.
Napoli head into the Sunday night main event on the back of a 1-0 away win at Bologna. The win followed on from a shock 2-0 home loss to Sassuolo. The Neroverdi sit in between AC Milan and Napoli. They could be the big winners this weekend. A victory for Sassuolo and Napoli win or draw would send the Neroverdi to the top of the table after eight games.
Can AC Milan continue their unbeaten streak or will Napoli snatch a home win?
Napoli vs AC Milan Betting Odds
Last season, the two famous Italian enemies drew both games in Serie A. Their match at the San Siro finished 1-1 thanks to goals from Hirving Lozano and Giacomo Bonaventura. Both strikes came in the first half of the fixture.
The reverse fixture played at the San Paolo finished 2-2. AC Milan’s Theo Hernandez opened the score in the 20th minute but his goal was cancelled out by Napoli’s Giovanni Di Lorenzo 14 minutes later. Napoli then went in front on the hour-mark thanks to a Dries Mertens goal. AC Milan levelled 13 minutes later from the penalty spot.
Napoli have played three times at home this season taking six points from nine. After wins against Genoa and Atalanta, Napoli fell to Sassuolo in their last home fixture. Napoli are +3 in goal difference with eight goals scored and five allowed.
AC Milan are a perfect nine points from nine on the road. Their wins came against Crotone, Inter Milan, and Udinese. Just two goals have been allowed by AC Milan on their travels while scoring six times. AC Milan are unbeaten in their last four games versus Napoli in all competitions. Three of those games finished in draws, however.
Napoli vs AC Milan Team News
AC Milan could be without coach Stefano Pioli for the game due to self-isolation after testing positive for COVID-19. Pioli has been away from the team in recent days and is unlikely to travel with the team to Naples. Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is fit and ready to start for the club. The striker remains one of the team’s key players as they attempt to wrestle the Scudetto away from Juventus. AC Milan are four points ahead of Juve. The two teams won’t play until January.
The Rossoneri are not carrying any significant injuries and there will be a full squad to choose from for the game. Full-back Theo Hernandez has turned into one of the premier left-backs in football. He has created 12 goalscoring opportunities, attempted more than 18 crosses, taken seven shots with sixing hitting the target. He has scored one goal.
Gattuso has so far got three players on the injured list at Napoli. Defender Elseid Hysaj is ruled out due to a positive COVID-19 test. Chelsea castoff Tiemoue Bakayoko is ruled out with an illness although it doesn’t seem to be COVID-19. Striker Victor Osimhen is ruled out with a muscle strain.
Napoli vs AC Milan Prediction
The games played between Napoli and AC Milan last season both finished in score draws. The clubs were able to both find the back of the net in two evenly contested games. With the firepower on both sides, they should find the back of the net once more as both teams score. Four straight AC Milan games ended with both teams scoring goals.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic brought a winning mentality to AC Milan when he returned from LA Galaxy. He leads the team in scoring with eight goals from five appearances. Ibrahimovic scored in each of his last four league games, tallying six goals. Ibrahimovic now has 140 career goals in 242 Serie A games.
AC Milan are playing well, but it cannot be ignored that two of their last three league games finished in draws. They are giving up goals. In their two draws, they allowed three goals to Roma and two to Hellas Verona. The last three games witnessed AC Milan concede six goals in total. Can they keep a strong Napoli out of net? It isn’t likely, but AC Milan are still good enough to get all three points away from the San Siro in the south of Italy.
Nine of the last 15 games between Napoli and AC Milan in all competitions finished with over 2.5 goals scored. That includes last season’s game at the San Paulo. Five straight AC Milan Serie A games ended with over 2.5 goals scored. In fact, there have been over 2.5 goals scored in 14 of AC Milan's last 17 league games. Three of Napoli’s last five league games finished with more than 2.5 goals scored.
The Rossoneri have conceded goals recently, but outscored opponents to win. They should do it again this weekend with a brilliant away win in Naples. A victory would allow AC Milan to continue to set the pace in Serie A as Juventus play catch up. Both Napoli and AC Milan restart the Europa League next week, so winning on Sunday will be a huge boost as the games come even faster.
