AC Milan vs Napoli Betting Analysis

It’s been just over a week since AC Milan pulverized this same Napoli team 4-0 in Serie A, with the two teams meeting again in a huge Champions League quarter-final matchup that promises to be a spicy affair between the two domestic rivals.

Despite that win against Napoli last week, AC Milan still had two cards dished out to them in that game and currently rank as the 5th most aggressive team in Serie A this season on total booking points received.

Napoli were able to rebound from that Milan defeat with a 2-1 victory against relegation-battling Lecce last time out, but in truth looked far from impressive in that game, and will need to step it up here if they’re going to progress towards their first Champions League semi-final in their history.

The two teams have alternated wins and losses against each other across recent head-to-heads, but Napoli will certainly hold no fear of traveling to the San Siro on Wednesday, a venue they’ve beaten AC Milan three straight times in.

Napoli Looking To Rebound

Coming off two poor performances across their last two starts, Luciano Spaletti’s men will look to rebound against AC Milan on Wednesday evening in a huge Champions League quarter-final clash on the road.

The good news for Napoli however is that not only have they been dominant throughout the season as a whole, both in Europe and domestically, they’ve also won eight straight games on the road as well, scoring at least two goals in each of those matchups.

Milan’s Rollercoaster Season Continues

From the highs of knocking Tottenham out of the Champions League and dismantling Napoli 4-0 in their last head-to-head, AC Milan have been equally adept at the lows, following up those two victories with draws against lowly Salernitana and Empoli respectively.

Milan will need to be back to their very best in this one however in order to see off the Serie A league leaders, but in Portuguese forward Rafael Leao, who scored twice against Napoli last time out, they have the individual talent to potentially make that happen.

AC Milan vs Napoli Expert Prediction

Napoli striker Victor Osimhen will not play in this first leg against AC Milan after picking up a previous injury against Torino, and that’s no doubt a huge blow to Napoli as the Serie A’s top scorer this season has been such a huge offensive threat for the Gli Azzurri.

That said, his absence has already been factored into the line and Napoli still possess more than enough offensive weaponry to cause the Rossoneri some major problems here, none more so than the Serie A’s 5th top scorer this season Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

Expect a return to form for Napoli on Wednesday as they take care of business on the road against AC Milan in their Champions League quarter-final first leg matchup in the San Siro.

Prediction: Napoli (+190)
