Napoli vs AC Milan – Preview

The Rossoneri are struggling this season after winning last year Scudetto, as their Serie A’s goal right now is top-four zone to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season.

Stefano Pioli’s side has endured strange season so far moving up and down the tables with mixed results, including two losses and two wins in the last five games in the league.

The more worrying stats for Milan fans are their team’s far from home record. Only two of their last ten games away from home have ended in victories, while they suffered from three ties and five defeats.
