Milan vs Napoli by Rahul
Milan came into this season having spent a lot of money to sign Bacca, Adriano and Balotelli as their 3 new strikers who could help them get the goals that they were so desperately missing last time around. While that has definitely improved in their performances, they still haven't managed to gather too many positive results. They have however, started to make San Siro a fortress by winning 2 straight games at home. During those 2 games have been 3-2 v Palermo and a 2-1 win over Empoli. While those are no pushovers, it will give the fans something to cheer about in this first big game of the season in front of their home fans. Their poor form has come away from home, where they lost 3 out of 4 without even scoring, but home comforts should be good enough to find a goal to possibly even push for victory in this encounter.
Napoli will clearly be the favourite of this encounter, especially owing to their form of scoring goals and lots of them so far. They have netted 12 goals in 6 games in Serie A so far, and 19 goals in 8 games for the season including the Europa League shows you what they are capable of in front of the net. Last weekend they put in a top performance by beating Juventus by a score of 2-1; and thats not to forget that they were in control for most of the game.
Up front Napoli boast a host of talent with the likes of Insigne, Mertens and Higuain up front along with a supporting cast including Hamsik, Callejon, Lopes & Gabbiadini to give them additional firepower. However, on the defensive end they still continue to struggle conceding regularly with a back 4 of Albiol, Chirches, Maggio and Hysaj; and with Reina in goal who is also struggling. 14 out of the last 15 Serie A games involving Napoli have seen over 2.5 goals in their games, with the exception being a 0-0 draw played over 10 days ago; their are always out to entertain the fans.
4 out of the last 6 meetings between these 2 teams has seen at least 3 goals in them, so I expect this run of scoring to continue and for these 2 sides to provide us with terrific entertainment tonight.
