Napoli vs Milan (2022/23 Serie A) Key Info
Napoli are in first place in the Serie A standings, and they aren’t going down anytime soon, as they are 19 points ahead of the second-place team, Lazio. Napoli have beaten Frankfurt 5-0 on aggregate to advance to the Champions League quarter-finals, and the draw has put them against Milan. The Parthenopeans are doing very well this season in Serie A and in Europe, even though they lost to Cremonese in the Coppa Italia on penalties.

According to the best Italian football bookies, Napoli are the home favorites at 1.75 (3/4). A draw is offered at 3.70 (27/10), while Milan are a big away underdog at 5.0 (4/1) to beat the Parthenopeans.
Napoli are coming off a big 4-0 away win against Torino. Osimhen scored twice, while Kvaratskhelia and Ndombele each scored once. The Parthenopeans are having a great run in all competitions, as they have conceded only one goal in their last nine matches. Napoli have scored nine goals in their last three games as well.
Milan are coming off a 3-1 away loss against Udinese. The Rossoneri have dropped off big time after winning the league last season. Milan are winless in the last four games in all competitions, and this won’t be an easy game for them either. They will be the underdogs in this match and the Champions League one as well.
