Serie A saves the best until last this week as the San Siro plays host to two of the top teams in the division on Sunday. Milan stayed on course to compete for a repeat league title last weekend by overcoming struggling Sampdoria and remaining unbeaten in Serie A. Only a soft red card for Rafael Leão ruined the day for Stefano Pioli.
Now the Rossoneri face another one of the top teams when they welcome Napoli. Milan continue to improve as the season goes on and the victory in the Derby della Madonnina the other week showed that last season’s scudetto was not a fluke. A win against this Napoli side would be a statement of intent as well as bringing in three more valuable points.
Meanwhile, with the changes in personnel at the Estadio Diego Armando Maradona in the summer, not many would have predicted just how well Napoli would start the new campaign. But an incredible Champions League performance against Liverpool has been replicated in the league so far.
The Partenopei were all over Spezia last weekend but had to wait until the 89th minute before Giacomo Raspadori scored the winner, his first for the club. With Victor Osimhen still out injured, his form could be vital. Napoli remain unbeaten in the league but Luciano Spalletti, banned from the touchline for this one after being sent to the stands last time out, will know that this is by far the sternest test of the campaign for his players so far.
Pioli will have to rethink the way Milan attack this weekend, as he is with Leão after his red card against Sampdoria. Brahim Diaz could make a return to the starting eleven but Olivier Giroud will still lead the line up front. On the other side, Spalletti has his own injury problems to worry about but should stick with largely the same starting XI for this trip to the San Siro. Raspadori should be given another chance after scoring the winner against Spezia.
