AC Milan vs Napoli Prediction & Pick
Soccer fans will be treated to a battle between two of the top Serie A clubs. Napoli has gotten the job done with offense lately, winning eight of its last 10 matches while outscoring opponents 21-5 along the way. Meanwhile, AC Milan's defense has helped it find success, allowing just four goals in its last nine outings.
Having said that, you don't have to go too far back to find the last time these teams met. AC Milan just picked up a massive 4-0 victory over Napoli in Serie A action on Sunday, April 2. The victory also marked the second time in the last three meetings that AC Milan has overcome its Italian rival.
Keeping that in mind, I see this matchup ending in a draw. AC Milan has momentum following its latest victory, but Napoli is Italy's top club for a reason. Considering how the duo has traded wins in the past, it'd hardly be surprising if there wasn't a victor in the first leg.
Final Score Prediction: AC Milan: 1 | Napoli: 1

AC Milan vs Napoli Best Bet
Although AC Milan put up four goals against Napoli in their last clash, I don't expect another offensive explosion. After all, the four previous meetings before that saw an average of just 1.5 goals scored, finishing with two or fewer in three of those contests.
With both sides knowing how to keep the ball out of their net, I'm looking at the under as the best bet for this clash.
Bet: Under 2.5 Goals (-128)
