Napoli and Argentina attacker Gonzalo Higuain looks outstanding value to enhance his fine scoring record against AC Milan this Sunday.

In all competitions, Gonzalo Higuain has hit 26 goals in 51 appearances for Napoli this term so far. With such a sensational striker in their ranks, Rafa Benitez’s boys are odds-on 4/7 favourites with Coral and Paddy Power to return to winning ways at home to AC Milan.

The Rossoneri come to Naples on a four-match winless run and head coach Filippo Inzaghi is under real pressure. There is no room for sentiment at San Siro, with both Milan teams experiencing hard times and rumours are rife former AC stirker Inzaghi could be sacked if the slump cannot be addressed.

At a top-price of 6/1 with BetVictor for an away win, the Rossoneri boss may worry for his future. Higuain is another headache for Inzaghi as well.

With three in three against Milan, Argentina centre forward Higuain is a best bet of 11/10 with Coral to net against this opposition anytime.

Those goals helped Napoli do the double over them last term, but now Benitez is in search of points to secure Champions League football for next season. His team trail Roma in third by five points with as many matches left to play.

Benitez shall seek a response to a shock midweek defeat at Empoli, and could well get it against a Rossoneri team that has kept just one clean sheet in eight. Higuain bagged a brace on his last home outing, so is top value at 5/1 with Betfred for two or more once again.

Backed up by Slovakia attacking midfielder Marek Hamsik and Belgium wideman Dries Mertens, Higuain is also superb value at 7/2 with a host of bookmakers, including Betfred, Coral and Sky Bet, to score first.

In stark contrast to Higuain and his consistent form throughout the campaign, Milan have seen Jeremy Menez’s goals dry up, and need him to discover his shooting boots for the battle in Naples.

Betting tip: Higuain scores two or more v AC Milan @ 5/1 with Betfred
