Rafa Benitez has started life at the San Paolo in perfect fashion and our tipster expects his side to continue their fine form on Sunday
Having won their first three Serie A games, Rafa Benitez’s men put last season’s Champions League runners-up Borussia Dortmund to the sword in midweek, and are available at 9/5 (2.80) with BetVictor to continue their fine form with another victory.
However, the Rossoneri have gone 13 league games without tasting defeat in front of their own fans and are slight 13/8 (2.63) favourites to collect their 12th win in 14 home fixtures.
The last three encounters between the sides have ended in a draw, and you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them cancelling each other out once again here.
The Partenopei finished above their opponents for the first time since their last Scudetto victory in 1990 last season, thanks largely to an exhilarating attacking line-up that out-scored every other Serie A side.
Despite losing top scorer Edinson Cavani in the summer, new boss Rafa Benitez has managed to rebuild the frontline whilst sacrificing none his side’s potency, resulting in 11 goals from four games so far this season.
Napoli have now gone 13 league games since failing to find the net, scoring 35 goals in that time, and will therefore be extremely confident of troubling a backline that is yet to keep a clean sheet this Serie A campaign.
However, considering Massimiliano Allegri’s team have only failed to score once in their last 16 league fixtures at San Siro, there should be no shortage of goalmouth action on Sunday, meaning even odds (2.00) cannot be ignored on over 2.5 goals going in.
That bet would have paid out in seven of Napoli’s last eight league fixtures and five of Milan’s last six, so should be more than safe when Gonzalo Higuain and Co. take on Mario Balotelli’s outfit.
