Reason for AC Milan vs Napoli Predictions
AC Milan is up to second in Serie A, a point behind leaders Inter. They look to get three vital points when hosting fourth-placed Napoli. Milan had won two league games in a row but needed a last gasp goal to get the point at Udinese. This is the final game of this matchday, so Milan may well be four points behind Inter and down to third by the time this game begins. Milan has only lost one home league game this season, a surprise 2-1 loss to Sassuolo. Before that, they’d held Inter to a draw and most recently beat Salernitana (who host Inter this weekend) 2-0. Milan has some tough home games on the way with Roma and Juventus to play in January. Alessandro Plizzari (Knee Surgery), Davide Calabria (Calf Problems), Olivier Giroud (Torn Muscle Fibre), Ante Rebic (Thigh muscle rupture), and Simon Kjaer (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be taking part for AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli. Alexis Saelemaekers finally shows the qualities he possesses, he has excellent technique, and he is unstoppable in a one-on-one game. Zlatan Ibrahimovic plays excellently, and with his experience, he helps young players. The fans adore this man, and Zlatan is unique.
Napoli won at Milan last season and could do with a win here. They made a storming start to the Serie A season with 10 of their first 12 games won. It’s gone downhill since then, though, with three losses in the five that have followed. That includes the last two with losses to Atalanta and Empoli, both at home. They should have shown Napoli how to beat Sassuolo but gave away a 2-0 away lead and drew 2-2. Only one of their last four away games in Serie A, and that was at Salernitana, who are bottom of the table. Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti has a large number of players off the field. Mario Rui (muscle fatigue), Viktor Osimhen (cheekbone fracture), and Kalidou Koulibali (muscle biceps injury) are the ones who cannot be considered. Filippo Costa is unable to play in this match due to suspension. Piotr Zielinski shows talent, he has excellent ball control, can play in multiple positions, and every team needs such a player. Lorenzo Insigne is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance.
It is going to be a very tight clash in which both sides have the chance to take points. It won’t be surprising if the game ends in a draw.
We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score. One thing is for sure – football fans should enjoy this game.
