AC Milan and Napoli are set to clash in a highly anticipated Serie A match on Sunday, with both teams aiming to capitalize on their recent hard-fought victories.
Milan in Top Form, Aiming to Close Gap on Juve:
The Rossoneri are in fine form, boasting five wins and a draw in their last six league matches. This impressive run has seen them close the gap on second-placed Juventus to just four points. Stefano Pioli’s men are firing on all cylinders offensively, scoring at least two goals in each of their last five Serie A outings.
Napoli Struggling on the Road, But Recent Wins Offer Hope:
Despite their inconsistency throughout the season, Napoli managed to grind out seven points from their last three league games, keeping them in contention for a Champions League spot.
However, their away form remains a concern, with four losses and a draw in their last five matches across all competitions. Their inability to score on the road further complicates their chances.
AC Milan holds the upper hand in recent meetings, remaining unbeaten in their last four encounters with Napoli. They boast two wins and two draws against their southern rivals. Interestingly, both teams found the net in each of the last two head-to-head clashes.
Considering their superior home form, strong offensive output, and Napoli’s struggles on the road, AC Milan seems the more likely winner at 1.95 odds. However, with Napoli’s ability to snatch late victories and Milan’s recent defensive lapses, an Over 2.5 goals bet at 1.72 odds could be a safer option.
