Insight and Analysis: AC Milan vs Napoli Serie A 2021 Match Prediction
AC Milan vs Napoli Serie A 2021 Match Prediction, Injuries/Suspension, Match Facts, Team News, Preview and Where to Watch.
Milan fans will be hoping that a disappointing 1-1 draw against Udinese last time out was just a blip on the radar on the road to the Scudetto this season.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to see the title contenders reclaim their title here at the San Siro.
This season, Milan has only lost twice in Serie A (SA) (W12, D3, L2).
With only one win in their last five competitive games in this venue, there can be no guarantees.
During that run, they did manage to avoid defeat against champions and deadly rivals Inter (1-1).
Each of the last five home H2Hs has produced two or fewer goals, so expect a close game here (W1, D3, L1).
After sitting atop the table for much of the season, Napoli has dropped to fourth place after winning just one of their last six league games (W1, D2, L3).
Napoli are outsiders for this match due to their recent poor form – a tag they’ve struggled with in SA games this season (L2).
Given that Napoli has scored nine goals in their last four away games yet only won once, tightening up defensively will be crucial (D1, L2).
However, aside from shutting out Milan, avoiding the wrath of the referee may be difficult, as four red cards have been shown in the last five league H2Hs alone.
Referee: Massa D. (Ita), Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro) (Milan)
Players to keep an eye on
In two of Milan’s last three games, Zlatan Ibrahimovi has scored the opening goal, with both goals occurring in the first or last 10 minutes of play.
Piotr Zieliski, who wants to surpass him, has a decent record versus Milan, with four goals in 16 personal H2Hs.Real Madrid vs Cadiz LaLiga 2021 Match Prediction
Luciano Spalletti, the Napoli coach, is unbeaten in eleven personal meetings with his counterpart Stefano Pioli (W7, D3).
Rafael Leo will miss the remainder of the 2021 season due to injury, but Olivier Giroud could return on Sunday night.
Mário Rui and Stanislav Lobotka will be evaluated before of this game, but they are unlikely to play.
Zambo, André-Frank Anguissa will start alongside Diego Demme in midfield.
Factors to Consider
In their last 22 matches, AC Milan has gone undefeated in 20 of them (Serie A).
In 10 of their previous 12 away encounters, Napoli has scored at least two goals (Serie A).
Under 2.5 goals have been scored in each of AC Milan’s last five home matches against Napoli in all competitions.
In 11 of their last 12 away games, Napoli has gone undefeated (Serie A).
The Rossoneri’s injury issues continue, with the Rossoneri dropping to second place last weekend after a lackluster effort in Udine.
Despite not producing clear-cut chances with 30 shots, Napoli were unlucky to lose to Empoli.
Injuries have had a huge impact on both teams’ Serie A performances, particularly in their attacking phases.
For various reasons, neither team can afford to lose, so we could be in for a tense match.
