Napoli vs AC Milan Predicted Lineups & Preview

4-0 in Serie A at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium and 1-0 in the first leg of this match at San Siro are the two losses Napoli has previously suffered to Milan in April. Lazio defeated them three times in a single season the previous time it happened, in 1994–1955.

Following a 4-0 victory earlier this month, Milan has won their past three away games against Napoli, all in Serie A. This is their joint-longest winning streak away from home against them. Sampdoria in 2015–16 was the last side they defeated twice in a season while playing away from home. Milan, who last advanced to the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League in 2006–07, leads Napoli 1-0 after the first leg.

Only twice have they been eliminated after winning the first leg of a knockout tie: in the quarterfinals of the 2003–04 season against Deportivo de La Corua (4–1 first leg, 0–4 second leg), and the last 16 of the 2012–13 season against Barcelona (2-0 first leg, 0–4 second leg).

Since losing 4-2 to Man City in November 2017, Napoli has gone undefeated in their past 12 home UEFA Champions League games (W9 D3). In each of their four victories at home this season, they have scored at least three goals. The finest streak by a team since Man City in 2020–21 (seven in a row) has been Milan, who have maintained a clean sheet in their past five UEFA Champions League games.

The 2004–05 season, when the Rossoneri went seven games without giving up on route to the championship, was the only time they had a longer streak in the competition. Going into this fiery Italian Battle, Napoli has a win probability of 55%, whereas AC Milan has a win probability of 25%.
