The probable lineups

The match between AC Milan and Napoli è, without a shadow of a doubt, the most eagerly awaited match of the five scheduled for Sunday in Serie A: a challenge that confronts the current third in the standings, in search of points to keep alive the hopes of a comeback Scudetto, and the reigning champions of Italy, who instead do not want to lose the Champions train after a period to say the least complicated.

Undefeated in the league for eight rounds, the Rossoneri coached by Stefano Pioli will rely as usual on the 4-2-3-1 with Simon Kjaer and Matteo Gabbia confirmed in the center of defense, Yacine Adli and Ismael Bennacer in the midfield and Olivier Giroud an offensive reference point supported by Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Rafa Leao.

Walter Mazzarri, on the other side, will field a 3-5-1-1-1 with Cholito Simeone up front and Kvicha Kvaratskhelia with license to space behind him. Piotr Zielinski should also return to the field, even from the 1', despite frictions with the club over non-renewal. In defense still trust for Ostigard, Rrhahmani and Juan Jesus.

Milan-Napoli, probable formations:

MILAN (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kjaer, Gabbia, Theo Hernandez; Adli, Bennacer; Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, Leao; Giroud. All. Pioli.

NAPOLI (3-5-1-1): Gollini; Ostigard, Rrahmani, Juan Jesus; Di Lorenzo, Anguissa, Lobotka, Zielinski, Mazzocchi; Kvaratskhelia; Simeone. All. Mazzarri.
