AC Milan vs Napoli: Prediction
AC Milan find themselves in 14th place in the Serie A standings following a narrow loss at Allianz Stadium. With four wins, one draw and seven defeats, Rossoneri are levelled with Sassuolo and just four points ahead of relegation-threatened sides.
Stefano Pioli’s men have claimed four points from last five league games, and they will be looking to snap their two-game losing streak when they take on last season’s runners-up Napoli at San Siro on Saturday.
Castillejo and Musacchio and injured for the hosts; Calhanoglu and Bennacer are suspended.
Seventh-placed Parthenopeans are on a five-game winless streak across competitions after a goalless affair vs lowly Genoa at Stadio San Paolo. Napoli have issues on and off the pitch, and it got worse after a 1-1 stalemate against Red Bull Salzburg when the players disobeyed owner’s orders and went home despite ongoing training retreat.
The fans turned against them, star midfielder Allan even got robbed, Koulibaly hired bodyguards, etc. Complete madness.
Malcuit is surely out for the visitors; Milik, Manolas, Allan and Ghoulam are questionable.
The Rossoneri, 2-1-3 at home, have an average of one goal scored per bout at San Siro, whilst allowing 1.50 per match. At least three goals have been scored in three of their six games played at San Siro.
Napoli have 2-2-2 record on their travels. They’re one of the most efficient away sides with 2.17 goals scored per game, but they’re also conceding quite a lot – 1.83 per tie. Both teams have scored in 83% percent of their games on the road.
Even though the Azzurri are a better side, they should not be trusted right now. A win would solve some problems, but I can’t escape the feeling that most of their players can’t wait for the January transfer window to force a move.
Three of the last four AC Milan games at this venue had BTTS – Yes and that will be my main bet here. Both teams have solid-to-great options up-front and I’m confident we’ll see goals on both ends.
I will also back the hosts in Double-Chance market.
