Milan have been in fine scoring form at home, scoring an average of almost two goals per match.
Napoli’s away matches have also seen plenty of goals, with an average of 2.45 goals per game. The visitors have looked dangerous going forward; however, like Milan, they have looked insecure at the back at times, conceding an average of 1 goal per away game.
Two or more goals have been scored in nine of Milan’s last ten games and in six of Napoli’s last eight. We expect the net to bulge at least twice here.

Top scorer Olivier Giroud has been dangerous for the hosts, finding the target nine times in his last five league starts. The Frenchman scored twice when he last faced Napoli, registering three attempts on target in the process.
The bookies are offering a price of 1.30 for Milan to have a minimum of four shots on target and a nice price of 1.30 for Giroud to test Napoli’s keeper at least once.
