CorSera: Double reward on the table as Milan prepare for crucial clash against Napoli

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan will face one of their biggest tests this season this evening, taking on Napoli away from home. First place in the standings is up for grabs and the blow will be tough for whoever ends up on the losing side. 

The Partenopei managed to leapfrog the Rossoneri last round thanks to their 2-1 win against Lazio, scoring the winner late in injury time. They are currently ahead on goal difference as the H2H situation will be settled today.

As highlighted by Corriere Della Sera this morning (via MilanNews), tonight’s clash is the big decider. A draw would be good for both sides as they at least would match Inter, but Stefano Pioli has his eyes set on the three points.

There is still a lot of the season left but it’s also clear that tonight’s clash is worth double points, as the newspaper describes it. In addition to the advantage in the standings, a win would always give a lot of confidence ahead of what’s to come. The game, in that sense, should be very exciting.
