The Rossoneri have lost three of their last four games against Napoli at the Stadio San Siro, and worryingly for them, the visitors have the strongest away record in the division, with 12 wins so far. Napoli come into this game having struggled against Chievo, who scored first and then attempted to park the bus, but nonetheless, managed two very late strikes to down the Flying Donkeys at the Stadio San Paolo and remain four points behind Juventus.

The visitors have finally welcomed back Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik after another long-term injury lay-off, which gives them further attacking options up front. In addition to their excellent away record, Napoli have also been quite strong defensively all season, and have shipped just 21 goals. Only Juventus have done better.

Only eight of Napoli’s conceded goals have been on the road, which is another worrying fact for Milan, who were far from impressive against Inter. In fact, were it not for VAR and the Nerazzurri missing some gilt-edged chances, the Rossoneri would have not been able to settle for a nervy scoreless draw.

  • Napoli have won 5 of their last 6 matches against AC Milan in all competitions
  • Milan are undefeated in 12 of their last 13 matches
  • Napoli have scored at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches against AC Milan in all competitions
  • Napoli have won 12 and drawn three of their away fixtures this term

AC Milan vs Napoli: Prediction

Impressively, Napoli have yet to lose an away Serie A game, with 12 wins and three draws from their first 15 games. Furthermore, they have won five of their last six against Milan and three of their last four at the Stadio San Siro against the Rossoneri.

Milan, meanwhile have really struggled badly against top four sides, including both home and away defeats to Juventus and to complicate matters even more, will be missing skipper Leonardo Bonucci due to suspension. His center-back partner, Alessio Romagnoli also looks set to miss out due to injury, thus further tipping this tie in Napoli’s favor.
