The Campania capital outfit have been very solid against their visitors from Milan and will hope to make it stick again this weekend

SSC Napoli host AC Milan at the San Paolo in Saturday evening’s Serie A fixture.

Partenopei were close to winning the title last term but have started the new campaign in fine style with a 2-1 win away at Lazio last weekend.

Now up against a Milan side they have had the edge over in recent meetings, Carlo Ancelotti’s charges are favourites with Bet365 at odds of (1.61).

The Rossoneri did not participate in the opening weekend of fixtures as their host Genoa were mourning victims of the fatal collapse of a bridge in the city that killed 43 people.

Not since 2010 did Milan bag a victory at the San Paolo and this explains why the same betting firm quotes them as underdogs at odds of (5.50).

A draw is priced at (4.00).

Napoli are unbeaten in their last seven Serie A games against Gennaro Gattuso’s side, winning five and drawing two.

This is definitely a sign of domination and the men in sky blue are tipped to win both halves in this game at a mouth-watering offer of (4.33) with Bet365.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
