The most recent couple of matches have ended in draws and the last one played with restrictions saw Napoli’s record scorer on the scoresheets. Red hot Ibrahimovic, Serie A’s leading scorer with 8 goals looks extremely likely to score with his blazing form. The absence of the AC Milan manager will likely affect the team performance drastically. Napoli with their home advantage and positive performances of players in the UEFA Nations League have a good chance to come out of this fixture guns blazing.

Napoli vs. AC Milan predicted score 3-1.
