Rossoneri to host the side from Naples with whom they drew 2-2 last time

Stefano Pioli’s men will play as the hosts after a 2-2 draw against their upcoming visitors at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona stadium back in October 2023. AC Milan‘s Coppa Italia journey ended in a 2-1 defeat to Atalanta in the quarter-final stages. Since then the Rossoneri have scored 11 goals in 4 Serie A games without a defeat.

After a bitter 1-0 defeat to Inter Milan in the Supercoppa Italiana finals, Napoli featured in two Italian first-tier games. First one was on the road against Lazio. The game ended in a share of the spoils. Later a home fixture against Verona saw Walter Mazzarri’s men earn a 2-1 win.

Players to Watch

Olivier Giroud (AC Milan)

Currently, if we have a look at the scoring charts of the 2023-24 Serie A season, Olivier Giroud comes in at third position. The only two men who have scored more than him are Lautaro Martínez and Dušan Vlahović. And both of them are at least 11 years younger than Giroud. The 37-year-old costed AC Milan only €2 million back in 2021.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (Napoli)

In the absence of star striker Victor Osimhen, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia will be the main threat for the opposition. The 22-year-old Georgian had scored the winning goal for his team last game which helped in earning all three points on board. Kvaratskhelia has managed his consistency throughout the ongoing league season scoring 6 goals and providing 4 assists.

Match Prediction for AC Milan vs Napoli

The encounter will be thrilling for sure. Last meeting saw a red card and a 2-2 result. This one comes after a three months gap and AC Milan are doing a lot better than the visitors in the league. Given Napoli will be without crucial player Osimhen, the win is likely heading for the home side.
