Match Preview

 

Both AC Milan and Napoli have started the new Serie A season in excellent form, and victory for either would send them to the top of the Italian standings this weekend. The sides are both locked on 14 points coming into this round of fixtures, and they are two of the four teams in Serie A that still boast an unbeaten record at this early stage of the campaign.

 

Napoli has shown excellent form throughout the season to this point, as they have picked up four wins and two draws. In total, they have scored 13 goals in the six fixtures that they have played, and they have allowed just four goals. The Italian side come into this fixture in solid form, as they have picked up wins in their previous two fixtures in the league. Their latest success was a 1-0 home victory against Spezia last weekend.

 

Milan come into this fixture with an identical record in the league this season. But, they have a slightly inferior goal difference, as they have scored one less goal and have conceded two more. However, they have picked up victories in three of their previous four league fixtures, with the latest of those coming last weekend against Sampdoria. Oliver Giroud scored the winning goal in that fixture, as he struck the winner with just over 20 minutes remaining.

Recent Meetings 

Napoli’s run of two straight victories against Milan came to an end in the previous meeting between the sides, as Milan picked up a much-deserved victory. However, Milan’s home record in this fixture is slightly underwhelming, as they have been beaten in their previous two fixtures against Napoli at the San Siro. 

AC Milan vs Napoli Prediction

 

This will be a very exciting fixture in Serie A this weekend, as Milan puts their 22 domestic game unbeaten record on the line. However, we could see this weekend being the one where Napoli firmly throws their hat into the title race. Therefore, we like the chances of the away side taking the points for the third game running at the San Siro.

 

Pick: Napoli at 5/2 with BetXchange.
