AC Milan vs Napoli - 01/26/19 -Serie A Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

In the Italian Serie A, AC Milan are set to host Napoli at the San Siro.

Napoli are currently second on the ladder and must keep winning if they wish to keep Juventus within sight. In their previous game, Napoli beat Lazio 2-1 at home. It was a solid performance by Napoli as they controlled 56% of the possession while producing 21 shots. Callejon and Malik were both in exceptional form as the pair scored the goals for Napoli. This is going to be a tougher challenge for Napoli as they will be away from home and playing against one of the biggest clubs in the world.

On the other side of the pitch, AC Milan also won their previous match as they beat Genoa away from home. It was a dominant display by AC Milan as they had over 60% of the ball. It was a 2-0 victory for AC Milan with both goals being scored in the second half. This is a big game for AC Milan as they are only 1 point clear of Roma and the team will not want to lose 4th spot on the ladder. Finishing in the top 4 in vital for AC Milan as their finances rely on the team qualifying for the Champions League next season. It is expected to be a high-pressure match for AC Milan and we should expect to see the stadium filled with Rossoneri fans.

AC Milan and Napoli played earlier in the season in Naples. On that occasion, Napoli won 3-2 after AC Milan threw away their lead.

As far as this match is concerned, I am going to predict a draw. Napoli have the stronger team but with AC Milan playing at home, I see the Rossoneri being good enough to get a point from this fixture.
