Napoli 4/9 to beat AC Milan in Saturday’s Serie A clash
Competition: Serie A
Market: Napoli to beat AC Milan
Odds: 4/9 @ Bet365
Italy’s top league returns this weekend with the fans in desperate need of some distraction following the troubles of their national team. With Italy failing to overcome Sweden in their World Cup playoff, the return of club football should prove a remedy for that particular failing. With this in mind, top side Napoli host AC Milan on Saturday.
Napoli have been superb this season and they, along with Inter Milan, are the only teams yet to lose this season. The league leaders have won 10 games and drawn twice, scoring 32 goals and conceding just eight times. While they have drawn two games in their last four, they still have a one-point lead over Juventus in second-place. Napoli will want to immediately return to winning ways this week by dispatching AC Milan.
For AC Milan, things have not been as smooth this year. Six wins along with one draw and five defeats means that Milan have only accumulated 19 points, meaning they are already 13 points off the top, while they are the same amount above Genoa in 18th place. It has clearly not been the season that Milan would have wanted, while the fact that their arch-rivals Inter Milan are currently in third means that their struggles have been compounded. A win over Napoli would be a massive statement of intent for the season to come, but it is very unlikely considering the form of the two sides. With this in mind, we are backing Napoli with odds of 4/9 from Bet365.
