Napoli Preview – Can Napoli go level on points with opponents with a fourth win in five league games?

Napoli have picked up where they left off at the end of last season as they continue to impress under Rino Gattuso – who once again comes up against his former club. A hard-fought 1-0 win away to Bologna last time out before the international break was the result they needed after going down 2-0 at home to Sassuolo who moved ahead of them in the table.

That loss was a first defeat in 10 home games in Serie A and the challenge is now to start another similar run and one which keeps them at the top end of the table. Currently in third, they can go level on points with Milan who come into the weekend on top.

 

Our betting prediction:
Under 2.5 goals
11/10

It may have taken longer than the Naples faithful would have hoped but Irving Lozano is showing why the club invested heavily in the Mexican attacker last summer. He’s scored four goals in the league thus far and is one of a handful of forward players that provides so much threat.
With Roma to come to Naples a week on Sunday you sense that this is a really important seven days for Gattuso and his players.

Milan Preview – Still unbeaten in Serie A, can Milan show their title credentials at an intimidating venue?

Similar to their weekend opponents, Milan’s start to this season should come as no surprise considering how strong they were in the latter part of the previous campaign. Much has been made of Stefano Pioli transforming the San Siro outfit and he does appear to be sustaining that initial impression. Milan went into the final international break of 2020 top of Serie A despite only managing a draw at home to Verona.

They were two goals down in that match only for Zlatan to secure a point with a last minute equaliser – after having earlier missed a penalty.

Milan remain two points ahead of the rest and can further cement their own title credentials if they remain there after what is one of the most challenging fixtures of their season. A win in the derby and draw at home to Roma means Milan have a good record against the other top teams so far this season.

Although Zlatan missed that penalty nobody can argue with how good he’s been so far this season. He needs one goal to go into double figures with eight of his nine goals in the league.

Napoli vs Milan Betting Advice

With Juventus showing signs of being in transition under Andrea Pirlo and these two teams both having enjoyed strong starts to the season, hopes are high that Napoli or Milan could find themselves on top come the end of this campaign. To do that then these games are hugely important. Not just for the three points but also the belief that it would give the winner.

There has been little to choose between the teams in recent meetings with just win one apiece in the last six games. It’s over 10 years since Milan last won in Naples, however, so they have to overcome that record if they are to get three points.

Key Facts – Napoli vs Milan Betting Tip

  • Napoli lost their first home league game in 10 when losing to high-flying Sassuolo before the international break
  • Milan have won their last six away games in Serie A and unbeaten in their last 10
  • Four of the last six meetings between the teams have ended in draws

 

Both teams have proven they are capable of beating the big clubs in Serie A already this season but it’s Napoli who appear to have more in their favour here. How long Milan can continue to rely on Zlatan’s goals is questionable and the balance the home team have going forward can make the difference here.
