A feisty clash is on the cards tonight as the current Scudetto holders Napoli welcome Milan at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Napoli will aim to record a three-game winning run coming into this match. Consecutive losses to Real Madrid and Fiorentina took the momentum down their sails as the Partenopei fell a bit back to league leaders Inter. Rudi Garcia’s men did get back to winning ways against Verona in their last Serie A outing and followed up that one with a Champions League win over Union Berlin. It will be a tough task tonight for the hosts as they lost their most recent match against Milan 4-0 last campaign.
Meanwhile, Milan will aim to shrug off their recent subpar form and get back to winning ways. A Manuel Locatelli goal stood the difference between the two sides as the Rossoneri lost to Juventus in their previous league fixture. They couldn’t do justice to themselves in their Champions League match during mid-week as Stefano Pioli’s men suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain. Napoli have lost only three times against Milan in their last nine meetings and we are expecting an even battle.
Here are the predicted line-ups for the match according to Sky Italia:
Napoli (4-3-3): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrhamani, Natan, Mario Rui; Cajuste, Lobotka, Zielinski; Politano, Raspadori, Kvaratskhelia
Milan (4-3-3): Maignan; Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Reijnders, Krunic, Musah; Pulisic, Giroud, Leao
