Napoli won against AC Milan with 3-1, and we won the bet placed on there to be over 2.5 goals for the match, with odds taken from Betfair. AC Milan scored first, on the 8th minute, when Milan’s newest signing Adel Taarabt scored on his debut, but it ended up doing no good to the visitors as Napoli came from behind to win this clash.
The equalizer came four minutes later, when Inler’s scored after a deflected shot into the right corner of Abbiati’s goal. It could have been a way bigger difference, as Higuain scored, but the goal was disallowed for offside, and for some reason Milan managed to finish the first half with the 1-1 draw.
Barely 10 minutes into the second half Napoli scored for the second time, when Inler combined with Higuain for a great goal that wasn’t disallowed this time. And 10 minutes before the end of the regular time, Higuain completed the brace and succumbed Milan into the misery Clarence Seedorf was trying to get them out of.
Michael Essien, AC Milan’s signing from Chelsea London was looking pretty sharp, and even managed to fool Pep Reina, but his shot was eventually cleared off the line by one of Napoli’s defenders. The award for the controversy of the night would also go for this match, as the moment when Mario Balotelli was substituted he cried on the bench, and the English press attributed it to racist insults by Napoli fans, yet the Italian media had nothing to report, as usual.
Clarence Seedorf also dismissed the fact that Balotelli’s tears were a result of the racist insults and hurried to add it might have been because he missed a great opportunity to score.
Result: +18,9 units, bet won
