AC Milan and Napoli start the weekend level on points at the top of Serie A and will hope to showcase their title credentials when they meet at the San Siro on Sunday.
Both teams are unbeaten with 14 points from their first six matches and have made confident starts in the Champions League too.
Milan have had a tougher schedule, though, and have home advantage so 29/10 for them to win by exactly one goal is our opening AC Milan vs Napoli prediction.
AC Milan Odds
Backing Milan to win by a one-goal margin would have paid out in their last two Serie A fixtures.
They began the month with a thrilling 3-2 victory over city rivals Inter and followed that last weekend with a 2-1 win at Sampdoria despite playing almost all the second half with 10 men.
In the Champions League, a 1-1 draw at RB Salzburg last week was followed by a 3-1 win at home to Dynamo Zagreb so there is plenty to be happy about but that is four games without a clean sheet now.
Napoli are the top scorers in Serie A so far and both teams are averaging at least two goals per game so this has the makings of an entertaining match.
Looking at the 5/4 for the hosts to avoid defeat and both teams to score.
Napoli can be just as satisfied with their start to the season as they look to build on last season’s third-placed finish.
Four wins from six matches has helped them to the summit although they needed an 89th-minute goal from Giacomo Raspadori to finally break the deadlock against Spezia last weekend.
They were back on form in front of goal on Wednesday night when they followed up their 4-1 Champions League win at home to Liverpool with a 3-0 victory over 10-man Rangers at Ibrox.
As impressive as they have been at times, only one of their Serie A fixtures has been against a team currently in the top half.
Milan were 1-0 winners when the teams last met in Naples in March and are fancied to edge it again here so a 2-1 home win at 31/4 completes our AC Milan vs Napoli betting tips.
