Soccer | AC Milan vs Napoli
Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

AC Milan’s opening round match was delayed with means the Rossoneri will start their season one week later than the other teams in Italy. The season will start for AC Milan away from home in Naples as they take on Napoli. These are two of the biggest teams in the competition and it should be a treat to watch them play against each other.

AC Milan will look to start the season with a win. The Rossoneri will give Gonzalo Higuain his debut in this fixture and it will be interesting to see how the Argentine superstar starts at his new club. AC Milan have added well during the summer and this team is looking very strong. It will be a baptism by fire to start the season for Milan as they are facing one of the top teams in Italy but they will feel that they have a good chance of winning away from home.

On the other side of the coin, Napoli will look to continue their perfect record. The team from Naples beat Lazio last weekend and although they got the job done, things could have been better. The team looks to be adjusting to the new system that the new manager has established. This will take time and I am sure AC Milan will look to exploit this. That being said, the likes of Mertens and Insigne are in great form and they have the ability to win games on their own.

This should be a close game which I am going to predict will end as a draw. Napoli is still adjusting while AC Milan are away from home. This should mean that the teams will share the points. We are getting a great price to wager on the draw and that is the bet which I am going to suggest. Expect this to be a high scoring game since both teams are great attacking and weak defensively.
