In the derby of round 21 of Serie A, Milan are playing at home against Napoli. The difference in the standings is two positions, but The Blues have 13 points more. Undoubtedly the current status of Rossoneri in Top 4 can be considered a success, which is precisely the end goal of the team. Napoli are looking stable in the second position, but have to continue with the positive performance, because Inter are several wrong steps away.
The form of Milan in Serie A is not bad, while the team have just one defeat in the league for two and a half months. In the recent games, it was tough for Rossoneri to win against S.P.A.L. (2-1), knocked out Sampdoria for Coppa Italia, and lost against Juventus in the final of Supercoppa Italiana (0-1). In the last round, Milan were guests of Genoa, and after an equal match won with 2-0.
For a new consecutive season, Napoli are performing on a level in all competitions but still are not capable of winning something in Italy and Europe. The team have just four defeats so far – against Inter, Liverpool, Juventus and Sampdoria. The Blues are on a run of three straight wins at home over Bologna, Sassuolo and Lazio.
Both teams are feeling more comfortable as hosts, which gives an advantage of Milan in this match. However, Napoli have more quality players and a coach, which makes them favourites for this game according to the bookmakers. The match will be a quick and open one, and we expect goals for both sides. I will back Both Teams to Score, with Napoli 2-1 Correct Score.
