AC Milan face Napoli tonight in a crunch tie for 6th place and a Europa League spot. Both teams have been in solid form since the restart and neither have lost a single game. Gennaro Gattuso will be facing his former Milan side for the first time since he took the helm at Napoli.
According to the TuttoSport, Gattuso told the Napoli players that Milan will be a difficult team to beat and it will be a very bad match for Napoli.— HomeOfMilan (@homeofmilan) July 11, 2020
Milan will start with a similar line up to the past few games. Donnarumma in goal. Kjaer and Romagnoli at centre back flanked by Conti and Hernandez. Bennacer and Kessie will anchor the midfield. Saelemaekers and Rebic will start with Calhanoglu as the trequartista. Ibrahimovic will start as the lone striker.
Alessio Romagnoli and Ante Rebic need to be careful not to pick up bookings as they are both at risk to miss the following game against Parma on Wednesday.
