Team News

  • Goran Pandev is working to recover from a minor injury, so Insigne is expected to play, while the International from Macedonia will try to make the bench.
  • Behrami is suspended so Dzemaili will take his spot in the midfield together with Inler.
  • Dossena and Zuniga are in competition to patrol the left flank, with the latter favoured.
  • It is still unclear whether Allegri is going to field a 4-3-3 with Emanuelson in the midfield or a 4-2-3-1 with Bojan in the trequartista role.
  • In the second case, the coach may prefer to have De Jong or Ambrosini instead of Nocerino to partner Montolivo and ensure some balance.
  • Pazzini is likely to start, while Pato will probably sit on the bench.

Prediction

  • Napoli came from behind twice at Genoa, and with Juve and Inter dropping points in the last two rounds their title dreams were kept alive, though Fiorentina are not far behind them.
  • Milan failed their first important test against Fiorentina after a short period of good form, and Allegri still has to tweak his line-up to get the best from his players.
  • Here in Napoli, Milan may suffer from the opponents' dynamism, so the hosts should manage to control the game. Milan will try to counter and use the two flanks to provide crosses for Pazzini, but Cavani's recent form suggests that the most troubled of the two defences will be Milan's.

  • Maouro Bergonzi is the Referee for the Big game tonight between Napoli and AC Milan . Mauro in 5 games have 5 red cards and average 7 Yellow Cards. Bet-tipsters.com Free Tip for the game is Over 6 Cards 1.85 with Bet365 and over 0.5 Red cards 2.90 with 10bet.

  • Napoli has good chance to win against Milan first of all because seems to be in good shape (two victories in comeback in a row) but mostly for the poor score of Milan. Antonini, Abate and Bonera in defense out due to injury, captain Ambrosini is suspended. Is complicated for manager Allegri put down a competitive and solid line-up right now.
