Before choosing a bet, it’s worth keeping in mind the fact that Napoli are on the 9-match unbeaten streak in the Serie A (6 wins and 3 draws). Despite missing Milik and Gabbiadini Napoli still score a lot. At the same time their defensive line leaves much to be desired. The same is true for the Milan’s defense. With Romagnoli and Locetelli suspended and De Sciglio injured, Montella will gace a real challenge at San Siro this week-end. However, his team do have a strong character as they saved the day in Torino (2-2) last Monday. As Rossoneri have lost 3 out of the last 4 head-to-head encounters they are considered to be an underdog on the betting markets.

No wonder that the bookmakers give preference to the away team: AC Milan – 3,80, Draw – 3,45, Napoli – 1,97. As the last two matches between these clubs were rich on goals, you can try to bet on “Both Teams to Score” (1,64). Besides, giving the fact that Milan And Napoli both have problems with their defense, the bet “Total Goals over 2,5” (1,74) is also worth your attention. Apart from that, there is a good option “Double Chance: Napoli or Draw and Total Goals over 2,5” (2,50).
