Milan and Napoli are clashing at San Siro in a derby match of round 27 in the Italian Serie A.
After their little slump, Milan is doing well as of late, and they are undefeated in their last 5 games, but they have won only 2 of those 5 games. In their Europa League match against Manchester United on the road earlier this week, Milan was playing well, and they were the better team. After they conceded a goal in the 50th minute, Milan was able to tie the score in the 92nd minute, and the final score of this match 2-2. In the Serie A standings, Milan is now in 2nd place with 56 points, and they are still on Inter’s tail with just 6 points less. Milan was playing against Verona in their last Serie A game, and they have had 46% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 1 big chance created, and 74% of the correct passes. It wasn’t the best game for Milan, but they played well defensively, and they were able to win this match 0-2. Ibrahimovic has scored 14 goals for Milan, but he is still questionable for this match. Kessie has added 9 goals. Calhanoglu and Rebic are also still questionable, but they might get a few minutes in this game. Bennancer and Mandzukic are both still injured. Milan has a few important games ahead of them, but they need to keep winning in Serie A if they want to keep the title hopes alive.
Napoli hasn’t lost any of their last 4 games, while winning 3 of those 4 games, but it wasn’t enough for Napoli to stay in the Europa League. In their last Serie A game, Napoli was hosting Bologna, and even though they have had only 43% of ball possession, they have had 7 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 77% of the correct passes. Napoli has used most of their chances in this game, and they have deservedly won this game 3-1. Thanks to their positive streak, Napoli is back in the Champions League spot hunt, and they are now in 6th place with 47 points, an impressive 55 scored goals, and 29 conceded goals. Petagna and Ghoulam are now the only injured players for Napoli, while Lozano and Bakayoko are still questionable. Insigne is Napoli’s captain and the best player with 13 goals and 5 assists, while Lozano added 9 goals. Mertens has added 6 assists. Napoli is a good team, but they have been inconsistent for far too long this season, and it might cost them the Champions League spot for next season.
The trends are evenly split here, but Milan hasn’t lost any of their last 4 games while playing at home. I’m a Milan fan and I would love to see them get a win here, but with their dense schedule, I’m not sure they have it in them to get a win here. I’m seeing this game ending in a draw, and I will take it.
