Napoli come to the San Siro today a few places above Milan and four points ahead.

They have a game in hand, though - and Milan could cause some serious waves if they manage to defeat the strong Naples side tonight.

That’s a big ‘IF’ though.


When and Where: San Siro, Saturday 21st January, 2017, 7:45PM GMT.


How to Watch:

Australia: beIN SPORTS 3 Australia, RAI International

India: Sony ESPN

Italy: Sky Sport 1 HD Italia, Sky Supercalcio HD, PremiumSport HD, Sky Calcio 1

Lineup

Probable AC Milan XI: Donnarumma; Calabria, Romagnoli, Paletta, Abate; Bertolacci, Pasalic, Locatelli; Bonaventura, Suso, Bacca

Probable Napoli XI: Reina; Strinic, Albiol, Tonelli, Soderlund; Hamsik, Zielinski, Jorginho; Insigne, Callejon, Mertens


Watch Out For:

Dries Mertens is Napoli’s main goalscorer and is a serious threat at all times. No matter if he is shooting from long range or is screaming into the edge of the box - Dries can punish any team at any time and it’s important Donnarumma is at his best. Marek Hamsik will also dictate things from the middle of the park.


Previous Meeting:

Napoli 4-2 AC Milan


Prediction:

These teams are pretty evenly matched (believe it or not). A draw will occur, whether it is 1-1 or 2-2.
