Napoli vs AC Milan Predictions

  • Napoli have not lost any of their eight Serie A matches in 2022, winning five.
  • AC Milan were beaten 1-0 by the Partenopei in December.
  • In 10 league meetings with fellow top-eight Serie A sides, Napoli have managed five wins and have suffered just two defeats.

Potential title-decider beckons in Naples

The struggles of Scudetto favourites Inter has allowed both Napoli and AC Milan, who made blistering starts to their Serie A campaigns back in the Autumn, back into Europe’s most captivating title race, and they go into Sunday’s headline clash in Naples occupying the league’s top two positions. Only goal difference separates the duo, and a win for either side could prove decisive.

Luciano Spalletti’s Napoli arrive in this crucial encounter in fine form, having not lost a single one of their eight Serie A games in 2022, of which they’ve won five. Two of their three draws, moreover, came against Inter and Juventus, and their last-gasp winner at Lazio last week, a superb long-range strike from Fabian Ruiz, demonstrated they possess the necessary character to win a first title since 1990, when Diego Maradona starred for the Partenopei.

The Rossoneri, meanwhile, lost to Napoli at San Siro in mid-December, but also come into this match in decent form after putting together a run of seven without a loss in all competitions. However, their Coppa Italia semi-final draw with Inter in midweek was their third stalemate in a row, and their fourth in their last seven. The cup exertions of Stefano Pioli’s men, meanwhile, mean that they have had less time to prepare for this crucial test of their Scudetto aspirations, which could give the hosts the edge.

Back in-form Napoli to strike a huge blow

Taking into account the fact that Napoli won at San Siro in December, and the extra preparation time that their early Coppa Italia exit has afforded them ahead of this clash, we make Napoli slight favourites to secure a potentially monumental win.

Meanwhile, Spalletti’s team have only lost two of their 10 clashes with fellow top-eight opponents this season, winning five of those contests.

As a result, we’re tipping Napoli to open up a three point gap over their title rivals, and with both teams netting in each of the hosts’ last five matches, a 2-1 Napoli win appears a good correct score prediction.
