AC Milan-Napoli Betting Preview: Expect the Rossoneri to continue their dominant home form

Massimiliano Allegri's men have recovered from a poor start to the season and are in great form, particularly at home. Al Hain-Cole expects this run to continue on Sunday
Second face third in Serie A on Sunday, as Napoli travel to the San Siro to face AC Milan.

With Juventus probably out of reach in first and the chasing pack lagging behind, this clash may merely represent a fight for second place and automatic qualification to next season’s Champions League.

Victory for the Rossoneri would bring them to within a point of their guests, and they are favourites at Evens (2.00) with Coral to rack up an impressive ninth consecutive league home win.

Walter Mazzarri’s men have not beaten Milan at the San Siro in over 20 years, but you can get odds of 11/4 (3.75) on them ending that barren spell with all three points in this game.

The last two meetings between these sides have finished all square, and there are odds of 12/5 (3.40) available on them cancelling each other out yet again.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side are doing an excellent job of making up the ground that they lost during a shaky opening couple of months to the season, and are already looking like real title contenders for next year.

This renaissance has been built on their imperious home form, which is in stark contrast to the three defeats in four they suffered in front of their own fans at the beginning of the season.

While Napoli are also in strong form, they have struggled on the road slightly in recent weeks, having won just won of their last four, and having lost away to Chievo, Atalanta, Juventus and Inter this campaign.

As even Barcelona discovered recently, away trips do not come any more difficult than AC Milan, and with a partisan crowd behind them, the hosts should have enough to justify those even odds (2.00) for a home win.

The Rossoneri are usually quick out of the blocks, and have been leading at half-time in six of their last eight league victories, so odds of 21/10 (3.10) look inviting on them accomplishing that feat on Sunday.
