There's a blockbuster clash in Serie A on Saturday night but our tipster believes it's the defences that will dominate proceedings at San Siro

Second takes on fourth in Serie A on Saturday evening as AC Milan host an in-form Napoli side.

The visitors are Evens (2.0) to secure maximum points from their trip to the San Siro with 888Sport. It's easy to see why Carlo Ancelotti's men are the market principles given they've taken 19 points from their last eight league games.

Milan for their part are available at 13/5 (3.60) to win the game with the same firm while the draw is a 5/2 (3.50) chance.

The best option here looks to be in opposing a high-scoring match. Napoli have conceded just 18 goals in 20 Serie A games this term while Milan average a goal-per-game in the same time-frame.

While it's also true that the visitors boast an impressive attack - ranked third in the division no less - their visits to the elite clubs in Italy so far have been disappointing.

A 1-0 defeat at this ground against Inter Milan combined with a 3-1 reverse at the hands of league leaders Juventus means they might struggle to find too much joy in the final third.

"No" on Both Teams to Score is 21/20 (2.05) but it's the 9/10 (1.90) about under 2.5 goals with 888Sport that makes the most appeal.

Milan have tightened up at the back significantly in recent weeks. In their last six Serie A matches Gennaro Gattuso's side have conceded just twice. While the quality of opposition hasn't been the highest, it should give them confidence ahead of Napoli's visit on Saturday night.

Since the start of November, the hosts have played 10 league games with eight of them seeing this wager land. With Napoli’s attack stalling on the road against the better teams in the division, this could well follow suit.

The reverse fixture finished 3-2 on the opening game week of the season but Milan’s recent displays suggest that this could be a much tighter clash and there’s value in betting accordingly.

Under 2.5 goals at 9/10 (1.90) for a 1pt stake with 888Sport
