AC Milan vs Napoli Prediction & Betting tips
Napoli still hopes for the title, while AC Milan is still motivated to reach the top five. In short, a nice game of football in Milan.
AC Milan scored good results for a number of weeks and that’s why the team of Gennaro Gattuso seemed to make the connection with the best five teams of the Serie A. Just as soon as AC Milan actually seemed to be competing, fate struck. Juventus was lost, followed by a draw against Internazionale and Sassuolo. In the last three matches, AC Milan lost seven runs and that led to the score with number five Internazionale having grown to seven points.
Last week, the match against Sassuolo AC Milan seemed to offer the perfect opportunity to restore self-confidence, but that did not work out. The Milanese had to go very deep for their own public to prevent a defeat against the low flyer. Matteo Politano opened the score in the 75th minute for the visitors and as a result AC Milan had to show the mental resilience. A goal by Nikola Kalinic in the 86th minute put the 1-1 final score on the board.
Gattuso will have to improvise this week to form the heart of his defense. Leonardo Bonucci is on the side because of a suspension, while Alessio Romagnoli is injured. Mateo Musacchio and Cristian Zapata are now likely to make their appearance.
Napoli is the last challenger of Juventus and simply can not lose points. The difference with the Old Lady has grown to four points and that is bad news as Juve leaves almost nothing. Napoli owes this to the fact that the last few weeks have all been less smoothly with the Southern Italians. Of the last five matches in the Serie A, only two were won and that is too little. On visiting Sassuolo was disappointingly equal and last week Napoli had to go very deep to catch the three points against Chievo Verona.
The men of Maurizio Sarri had saved the best for last. After 88 minutes of football in Naples, there was a 0-1 score on the board, but afterwards the hosts managed to turn the game around. Arkadiusz Milik equalized with the score and in the 93rd minute Amadou Diawara was the winner of the winning goal. Napoli thus took full advantage, but will also realize that there will be a lot better football against AC Milan.
In Milan what new names expect at the kickoff. Raul Albiol and Jorginho return from a suspension and they will appear again in the base. This time, however, Mario Rui has been suspended and that’s why Christian Maggio can once again perform.
