UEFA Champions League

Venue: Stadio Diego Armando Maradona (Naples).

With just a couple of matches left in the season, it seems that the title race in Italy’s top league is already won for SSC Napoli. They’re 14 points clear of the nearest challenger, Roma, and coach, Spalletti, needs to win some matches to secure the championship. Still, they managed to get only one point from their last four outings. Their match against Verona ended in a scoreless draw.

Currently, AC Milan is fourth in the league, and they’re hoping to secure a spot in the Champions League next season. They have not lost in their last four matches, and they drew with Bologna in their previous match.

The first leg of the quarterfinals of the Champions League was played between AC Milan and SSC Napoli on Wednesday. At the San Siro, the hosts won the match with a goal in the first half. It was a fairly even match, though AC Milan managed to get the win.

Napoli vs AC Milan Head-to-head

  • The teams have met in six head-to-head meetings and each of them managed to win three times. AC Milan was able to get the better of I Partinopei in the last four encounters.
  • Since the start of the 2012-13 season, I Partinopei has a positive record when it comes to hosting Milan at home. The club has won nine out of 23 games there.
  • In the previous six meetings, both teams failed to find the target.

Napoli vs AC Milan Prediction

In the first leg, there were ten yellow cards and a red card, and we can expect more tension when the two teams meet again in Naples. As for AC Milan, they will likely stick to their usual defensive approach, similar to what they did against Tottenham Hotspur during the knockout stages.

The Under 2.5 goals market is the most favored bet here, with the odds at 1.72 and 8.50 respectively. We also think that the absence of Osimhen will have an impact on the game, as the former has been one of the team’s most consistent performers.

Napoli possible starting lineup:

Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Jesus, Rui; Ndombele, Lobotka, Zielinski; Lozano, Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia

AC Milan possible starting lineup:

Maignan; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez; Krunic, Tonali; Diaz, Bennacer, Leao; Giroud
