Betting tips Napoli vs AC Milan
There’s nothing to stop the leader of Serie A. Our Napoli vs AC Milan prediction is based upon the phenomenal form that Napoli have. The teams will soon play their Champions League clashes, so Luciano Spalletti is likely to hide the best things his team have to demonstrate them in the main European tournament. However, the head coaches have something on their mind.
We assume that Napoli won’t refuse a chance to secure their title officially as soon as possible. AC Milan in their current form can’t do anything playing against the strongest Italian team. We’re unlikely to see many goals scored in this game. The home side should win with a handicap in 1-2 goals. Our tip for this game is Napoli to win at 1.80
