Market: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 5/6 @ 888sport
In a battle between two sides enjoying a real purple patch, European chasers Napoli and AC Milan will face off at an empty Stadio San Paolo on Sunday night.
Starting with the hosts, really bouncing back from their 2-0 defeat against a high-flying Atalanta earlier in the month, Napoli have continued to shine since returning from the enforced break. Picking up a 2-1 win against Genoa in midweek, the Blues have won five of their last six matchups and famously lifted the Coppa Italia thanks to a penalties victory against Juventus. With the mood in his camp at a high, former AC boss Gennaro Gattuso finds his side sat in pole position to secure another European finish this season. Really starting to shine in the final third, Napoli also have a growing reputation for their recent displays on home soil. Landing what was an eye-catching 2-1 win against top-six chasers Roma at the Stadio San Paolo, Napoli have won each of their last three matchups in Naples, scoring two or more goals in each of those victories.
As for the visitors, putting in what was a stunning comeback against defending champions Juventus on Tuesday night, the mood around the San Siro has continued to skyrocket. Putting four goals past the Old Lady in the space of just 18 minutes, I Rossoneri have collected 13 points out of a possible 15 points since returning from the enforced break. Stefano Pioli’s side also sent shockwaves across Serie A with a glittering 3-0 romp away at Lazio last weekend. Scoring at least a pair of goals since returning to action last month and enjoying their brightest attacking run of the season so far, one man to keep an eye out for on Sunday will be the red-hot Zlatan Ibrahimović. Converting from the spot against Juve in midweek, the Swedish icon has bagged back-to-back strikes and has three goals in his last four appearances either side of the break.
