Milan vs Napoli Match Preview & Team News
Milan hasn’t lost hope to end this Serie A campaign as champions. They celebrated an important 2:0 victory away to Verona in the latest round. It came in the perfect moment after dropping two points in a draw against Udinese. Stefano Pioli’s side had a very tough challenge at Old Trafford last Thursday when they earned a 1:1 draw against Manchester United. Although they were trailing 1:0, Simon Kjaer’s stoppage-time goal can only boost the home side’s confidence. However, another tight match is ahead of the Rossoneri, and they need to search for a win to remain in the title race. Milan is six points behind Inter, who is in excellent form. The hosts haven’t been too confident at home lately, though. Milan celebrated just twice on the previous five occasions, and they need to be more stable at San Siro. The home side will have severe selection troubles, especially in the final third, as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Mario Mandzukic, and Ante Rebic will be out of the protocol.
Napoli sits in 6th place, and the team from southern Italy wants to get into the top four. Gennaro Gattuso’s side has been involved in very exciting games lately. The visitors are five points behind the fourth-placed Atalanta, but with two games in hand. Lorenzo Insigne and the lads put excellent performances at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. However, their real troubles come when playing on the road. Napoli managed to pick up only a point from the last four outings. They were very close to beating Sassuolo, but the game ended in a 3:3 draw. Napoli needs to improve their displays when playing away from home if they want to book a Champions League ticket
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
It is going to be a tight clash, and Napoli is not without a chance since Milan has injury troubles. Therefore, we think the visitors can get back home with at least a point from this clash.
Goals Market Prediction
Napoli has been involved in many efficient matches lately, and this one shouldn’t be much different. We should see goals in both nets as we don’t believe either of the sides will keep the clean sheet.
