Milan are in excellent form and have not lost 19 games in Serie A. On the other hand, Napoli have not lost to Milan in Serie A since 2014.
After the team break, the Italian Serie A will resume in the eighth round, and the main match will be held on Sunday in Naples. Napoli will host Milan, and the duel of these teams is always in the center of special attention. Especially now, because both of them started the season well.
Milan have a 19-match unbeaten streak in Serie A and are the sole leaders with 17 points this season. Napoli also has a great start, gaining 14 points in 7 rounds. Or rather, 15, but due to not appearing in the game against Juventus, they lost 1 point, and at the same time they considered a technical loss in that particular match. Thus, had it not been for the sudden home defeat to Sassuolo, the Neapolitans would have won every match in Serie A.
Another intrigue – Gennaro Gattuso
The legendary midfielder and former head coach of Milan Gennaro Gattuso is primarily associated with the Black and Reds. But he has been in charge of Napoli for the second season and now, with the strength of the former team, he can make another application for the “Scudetto”.
It is noteworthy that Milan has a very difficult time with Napoli. Specifically, in Serie A, the Rossoneri have not won their last 11 games against the Napoli team and lastly managed to defeat it in 2014. During this period, these teams met once in the Italian Cup, and then Milan defeated the opponent 2: 0. But it was a cup confrontation. So, Napoli has not lost to Milan in Serie A for 6 years!
Milan will miss Portuguese striker Rafael Leao in this match, who was injured during the national team break. In Napoli, Victor Osimen was injured in the Nigerian national team. Besides him, David Ospina will not be able to play on the field.
