AC Milan vs Napoli – Preview

Rossoneri already gave up the title hope this season as Napoli will most likely secure Scudetto.

This season sees Milan manage to reach the Champions League quarterfinals for the first time since 2012 but heavily crashed out by Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona at that time.

The 7th-time winner of this competition has had their perfect warm-up as they cruised past Napoli 4-0 at Stadio Maradona when the two clashed in Serie A earlier.

Luciano Spalletti’s side is edging closer to clinch their first Serie A title since 1990, but the European cup is also their top priority as they have come this far for the first time.

Gli Azzurri reached the last-16 in three different seasons since 2011/12, but never managed to pass that stage.

Team news

  • Pierre Kalulu and Zlatan Ibrahimovic both remain ruled out with injury.
  • Victor Osimhen has been confirmed to miss out, which is a big blow to the Naples side. The club’s marksman has not played a part in Napoli’s last two Serie A matches, owing to an abductor injury.

  • Milan 1-2 Napoli (Serie A)
  • Napoli 0-1 Milan (Serie A)
  • Milan 0-1 Napoli (Serie A)

Game prediction

It’s hard to see another 4-0 win for Stefano Pioli’s men as Napoli, in fact, has good record at the San Siro, unbeaten in the last four meetings there.

But given the absence of Osimhen, the visitors will struggle to get a win far from home.

AC Milan 1-1 Napoli
