Free Predictions ahead of AC Milan vs Napoli

Two of this season's potential title challengers in Serie A go head-to-head on Sunday as AC Milan play host to the current league leaders Napoli. There has been very little between these two clubs in recent meetings and we're expecting another tight and tense 90-minutes at the San Siro.

Draw

In terms of a result, we're backing Sunday's Serie A clash to end all square. Both teams have started the new season well and to a similar standard. While AC Milan have the home advantage this weekend, that is not something that has helped either side in recent seasons as the last six meetings between these two clubs have failed to produce a single home win. AC Milan are also without a number of their key goal threats in attack this weekend with Ibrahimovic still sidelined through injury and Leao suspended, while Napoli don't have the injured Osimhen to rely on either.

Under 2.5 Goals

Under 2.5 goals have been scored in four of the last six league meetings between these two clubs, including each of last season's clashes. Under 2.5 goals have also been produced in three of AC Milan's and three of Napoli's last six outings, so you can see why we've backed this game to low-scoring.

Can AC Milan knock Napoli off the top spot?

AC Milan made the trip to Sampdoria last weekend where a goal from Junior Messias after just 6-minutes put the Italian giants in front. Early in the second half, Rafael Leao was sent-off for a second bookable offence and just before the hour mark, Sampdoria equalised through Duricic. AC Milan regrouped and continued to push forward in search of a second goal, eventually getting what they deserved when Giroud converted a 67th-minute spot-kick and the visitors went on to secure a 2-1 victory.

AC Milan Predicted Lineup – Maignan, Kjær, Calabria, Hernández, Kalulu, Pobega, Tonali, De Ketelaere, Giroud, Bennacer & Messias

Napoli were expected to win comfortably at home to Spezia last time out but the game ended up being much tougher for the hosts. The first forty-five ended goalless and the second half looked to be heading in the same manner until Raspadori fired home the only goal of the game for Napoli in the 89th-minute.

Napoli Predicted Lineup – Meret, Jesus, Rui, Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Ndombélé, Anguissa, Elmas, Politano, Kvaratskhelia & Raspadori

Team News

AC Milan: Rafael Leão is suspended, while teammates Ante Rebic, Divock Origi, Alessandro Florenzi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic look set to miss the game through injury.

Napoli: Hirving Lozano, Victor Osimhen and Diego Demme are the three main injury concerns for the visitors this weekend.
