It is a clash of titans as the Italian Serie A serves us a tantalizing match between a rejuvenated AC Milan and Napoli.
Both teams have enjoyed differing campaigns up until this point. AC Milan has spent most of the campaign on top of the Serie A standings, whilst Napoli have been fighting to get into the European spots instead of competing for the top prize due to inconsistency, which has become the norm this season.
The upcoming match will be the second meeting between the sides in the current season, with AC Milan coming out victorious last November with a 3-1 away win . The match is important for both sides as a win is required to stay within touching distance of their respective goals.
This could be an interesting game for the bettor with plenty of value to consider if you look closely enough.
AC Milan vs Napoli: Previous Clashes
On their head-to-head record, they have played against each other a total of 151 times with AC Milan recording 57 wins, Napoli with 44, and 49 ending in stalemates. The matches have produced an average of just over 2.5 goals per game over the years, so we should see an exciting match if that trend continues.
The visitors hold the upper hand in this fixture recently, with the last five league encounters at the San Siro resulting in three draws and two Napoli victories.
AC Milan will probably miss the services of Zlatan Ibrahimović, their top scorer, and fellow striker, Mario Mandžukić. Others doubtful or set to miss this one include Hakan Çalhanoğlu, Daniel Maldini, and Ismaël Bennacer, all of whom were critical to Milan’s strong form in the ongoing season and have missed recent matches.
Elsewhere, SSC Napoli’s frontman, Victor Osimhen scored on his return to action last Sunday after recovering from a head injury. Andrea Petagna remains on the treatment table, but the club from Naples hope to welcome back Hirving Lozano to the team after recovering from a hamstring injury.
