Napoli vs Milan, probable lineups

For Napoli vs Milan, coach Stefano Pioli will make only two changes to the team that defeated Juventus.

After the fine performance against Juventus it is time to think about Napoli vs Milan of tonight. Coach Stefano Pioli should not change that much the lineup that destroyed Juve last Tuesday.

The Rossoneri are keen to close the impossible triptych of games that started with Lazio in the best possible way. A success in Napoli vs Milan would bring the team very close to qualifying for Europa League.

For the San Paolo match, scheduled for tonight at 21:45 CET, Pioli should confirm the same back four seen at San Siro. In front of Donnarumma, therefore, again will play Andrea Conti, Simon Kjaer, Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez.

The heart of the midfield will not change too with Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer again playing from the first minute. However, some changes will be made in front of them with Hakan Calhanoglu ready to return from the first minute.

The Turkish attacking midfielder has fully recovered and will play alongside Ante Rebic on the left and Saelemaekers on the right. Lucas Paqueta must accommodate on the bench with the Belgian in advantage. No doubt about Zlatan Ibrahimovic who again will be the reference point in attack. There is no room for Rafael Leao from the first minute, the Portuguese striker has proven to be a key player in the second half.

NAPOLI (4-3-3): Meret, Di Lorenzo, Manolas, Koulibaly, Mario Rui, Fabian Ruiz, Demme, Zielinski, Callejon, Mertens, Insigne.

AC MILAN (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Conti, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Kessie, Bennacer; Saelemaekers, Rebic, Calhanoglu; Ibrahimovic.
