Bookies Struggling to Split AC Milan and Napoli

It’s been a pretty strong season from AC Milan and there’s still a chance for the Rossoneri to win the Scudetto this season, although they’re currently struggling to live with the pace set by Internazionale, with six points separating the two city rivals and Juventus still hoping to mount a title challenge of their own.

Stefano Pioli deserves enormous credit for improving the team after finishing sixth in the table last season, although Milan have won less than 50% of their home games this term and they’ll clash with a Napoli side who are hoping to break into the top four of the standings and qualify for their Champions League.

Milan Bidding to Recover Quickly After Old Trafford Visit

Milan will come into this clash after a Europa League tie in England on the Thursday night, with Pioli potentially rotating his squad at this busy point in the season, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic continues to be sidelined with injury and the Swede has been such a focal point of the team’s attack this season.

However, if you compare the latest betting odds, then you might be gratified to find that some football betting sites offer 6/4 or even slightly bigger when it comes to Milan winning this game and their recent domestic form has been fairly strong and there have been recent wins over Roma and Verona.

Franck Kessie continues to earn rave reviews in the attacking midfield position and this team average nearly two goals per game, with the Ivory Coast international having the potential to be the match winner in this clash.

Can Napoli Stun Milan and Claim Top Four Spot?

Napoli finished seventh in the Serie A standings last season, although Gennaro Gattuso’s side have a genuine chance of reaching the top four of the table this time around and qualifying for the Champions League once again, with the Naples side no longer having the distraction of European football.

The Azzurri were beaten by Granada in the Europa League recently, with some punters likely to be keen to back a fresher Napoli side for this clash and you can get nearly 2/1 about the visitors winning at the San Siro, with the team having scored twelve goals in the past five matches.

Lorenzo Insigne recently returned to form by finding the net against Sassuolo before a brace against Bologna, although the defence has been far from watertight and there have been four goals conceded against Atalanta before a further three against Sassuolo.

What Are the Best AC Milan v Napoli Bets?

The bottom line is that it might be worth steering clear of the Full-Time Result betting market, with neither team inspiring too much confidence, although we should be set for a fairly high-scoring match between two teams who need a victory for differing reasons.

The Both Teams to Score Yes betting option is available at 7/10 with some betting sites and it’s plausible that these two high-scoring sides will be out in search of goals, with Insigne looking to continue his recent scoring form in front of goal.

However, we can’t get away from the fact that Milan are prone to stumbling on home soil and it’s asking a lot to quickly turn around their form after a Europa League clash with Manchester United, meaning the 4/1 football betting odds about Napoli + BTTS Yes could be a price worth taking.

In the last five Napoli games, we have seen three or more goals being scored on four occasions and Over 2.5 Goals therefore makes plenty of appeal, with nearly even money about this outcome and Gattuso will be sending his team out in search of goals for this Serie A Sunday night clash.
