            Venue: San Siro

            The Italian champions Napoli travel to the San Siro to take on an AC Milan team who are involved in the fight to take their crown.

            Inter Milan and Juventus long looked like the two teams who would battle for the title, but five wins in six games has seen AC Milan put some pressure on. They currently sit in third, four points behind Juventus and eight behind Inter, though the latter have games in hand. Whilst it will be hard to displace either of the sides above them, their recent form has given them a fighting chance.

            Napoli, in contrast, are in a tough battle to make Europe next season, but they have moved up to seventh with a 2-1 win over Verona. They are only two points behind Atalanta in fourth, but will be competing with at least five other teams for Champions League qualification. Seven points separate Atalanta and Torino, who are 10th.

            A win for Milan would keep them within touching distance of the top two, but they do not have much room for error the rest of the way. Lose, and any title dreams are most likely over. Away from home, Napoli will view this as a must not lose, as it is imperative they do not lose ground on the teams above them.

            Only Inter have scored more goals than Stefano Pioli’s side, and the Italian has a number of attackers he can rely on. Olivier Giroud is the top scorer with 11 of their 46 goals, whilst summer additions and former Chelsea pair Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Christian Pulisic have five and four goals respectively.

            Walter Mazzarri’s side should get some joy going forward, however, as their hosts have conceded 27, the most of any team in the top half. Victor Osimhen is their main goal threat with seven, but he is still away at AFCON. Matteo Politano and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia have taken on the load in his absence.

            In their last 10 meetings, AC Milan have gotten the better of Napoli four times, including beating them over two legs in the quarter-finals of last season’s Champions League. Despite winning Serie A, Napoli did also lose 4-0 at home to their rivals.

            The reverse fixture this season saw the teams share the points, as Milan surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2. Olivier Giroud scored a first-half brace to put his side ahead before half-time, but Matteo Politano and Giacomo Raspadori levelled the score for the hosts.

            Form Guide

            AC Milan

            In their last five games, AC Milan have won three, drawn one and lost one. The sole defeat came at the beginning of this stretch of fixtures as they fell 2-1 at home to Atalanta in the Coppa Italia quarter-final. Rafael Leao had given his side the lead on 45 minutes, but Teun Koopmeiners equalised in stoppage time. The Dutchman added another from the spot to complete the comeback and send Atalanta through to the semi-finals.

            They responded well to this loss, as they beat Roma 3-1. Yacine Adil and Olivier Giroud goals put them in front 2-0, before a Leandro Paredes penalty got the visitors back in the game. However, Theo Hernandez sealed the three points with six minutes to go. Another victory followed, this time on the road against Udinese. It was a back-and-forth match, which saw both sides in front at some point. Milan got their first advantage through Ruben Loftus-Cheek, though Udinese came back to go in front in the second half. Luka Jovic equalised and Noah Okafor scored a 93rd minute winner to earn a crucial three points.

            Dropped points against Bologna ended a streak of four league wins in a row, but they quickly got back on track with a 3-2 win away at Frosinone in their most recent game. Once again the Rossoneri had to come from behind after taking the lead, and this time it was Jovic who scored the decisive goal with nine minutes to go.

            Napoli

            In their last five games, Napoli have won two, drawn one and lost one. Champions Napoli have endured a frustrating season, and have seen a mixed bag of results in this recent stretch. It began strongly with two wins in the league and Supercoppa Italiana against Salernitana and Fiorentina. Their 2-1 victory over Salernitana came extremely late, as Amir Rrahmani scored a 96th-minute winner. They followed it up with a 3-0 win in the semi-final of the cup, with goals from Giovanni Simeone and Alessio Zerbin booking their place in the final.

            A meeting in the final with Inter Milan ended in disappointment, this time on the wrong end of a late goal. Lautaro Martinez's 91st-minute goal won his side the cup after Simeone saw red with half an hour to go.

            Lazio were their next opponents in an important fixture in the race for European football. But neither side could find the back of the net as the game ended in a stalemate. Napoli’s most recent game was a home matchup with strugglers Verona, who are fighting relegation. They got back to winning ways with a 2-1 victory.

            Footy Accumulators Prediction

            Napoli have struggled of late, failing to score in four of their last six league games. Milan possesses the league’s best attack, and coupled with their home advantage, we expect them to win again to keep pace with Inter Milan and Juventus – AC Milan 3-1 Napoli
