Napoli is welcoming AC Milan to Stadio San Paolo in a derby match of round 8 in the Italian Serie A.
Napoli is playing well this season, and they are doing good in the Europa League as well. Napoli has 2 wins and a loss, and they are in second place with 6 points, 3 scored goals, and 2 conceded goals. In the Serie A standings, Napoli is in 4th place with 14 points, and they are one of the best teams overall. With 15 scored goals, Napoli is one of the best offensive teams in Serie A this season, while their defense is also among the best with only 7 conceded goals. In their latest Serie A game, Napoli was playing against Bologna on the road, and they were the better team in that game with 53% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a decent 83% of the correct passes. It was a hard and rough game for both teams, but Napoli was able to score a goal in the 23rd minute. The final score of this match was 0-1 in favor of Napoli. Lozano has scored 4 goals for Napoli, while Insigne, Mertens, Politano, and Osimhen added 2 goals each. Mertens has also added 2 assists. Osimhen is injured, while Hysaj and Rrahmani are both in quarantine. Coach Gattuso has most of his best players ready for this game, but we will see how this international break will affect their form, but overall, Napoli is doing well, and I think they will have a good season.
Well, it happened, and Milan has lost their first game since early March, since before the Coronavirus break. That loss happened in the Europa League against Lille at home, and Milan has lost that game 0-3. In Serie A, Milan is still undefeated, and they are at the top of the table with 17 points, 16 scored goals, and 7 conceded goals in 7 games. In their last match in Serie A, Milan was hosting Verona, the team against which many favorites slipped. Milan was the dominant team in that game with 66% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 14 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 80% of the correct passes. Milan didn’t start this game well, and they were losing 0-2 by the 19th minute. In the 27th minute, Verona has scored an own goal, and the lead was split into half. Milan was creating a lot of chances in the second half, and they were awarded a penalty kick in the 66th minute, which Ibrahimovic missed. In the 93rd minute, Ibrahimovic was able to score a goal, and this match has ended in a 2-2 draw. With 8 scored goals, Ibrahimovic has been Milan’s best player so far this season. Leao is the only injured player for Milan at this time. Milan has become a serious contestant for the Serie A title, and they are doing well in the Europa League as well. Milan is healthy, and they are playing well, and I love it.
The trends are pretty even here, but Napoli hasn’t lost to Milan in their last 9 home games. Milan hasn’t lost any of their last 14 games on the road. This is a hard decision to make, but taking everything into consideration, I will pick a draw here.
