This matchday of Serie A will be concluded by two high-profile games, first Roma-Atalanta and then Milan-Napoli. The latter has been branded as an early Scudetto clash, which Billy Costacurta backs.
Milan and Napoli have both started the season incredibly well, yet to lose a game in all competitions and both sitting at 14 points in the league. Tonight’s clash will thus be very important for the standings but also confidence-wise.
Speaking to Gazzetta Dello Sport, as cited by MilanNews, Milan legend Costacurta shared his thoughts on what he believes is one of the best games in the league. And he also stated that important Scudetto signals will arrive today.
“This is the match we all want to see, the best of Serie A are facing each other, the most courageous. Napoli are beautiful and powerful: from what we have seen so far, I think they are the most convincing in the Champions League together with City.
“Milan, without Leao, we don’t really know anymore. It will be interesting to see how Pioli will change the team, and what impact CDK can have. After tonight, we will be able to understand if Milan can win the Scudetto.”
Due to Leao’s absence, Rade Krunic is expected to start on the left flank today as he has seemingly leapfrogged Junior Messias in the race for a starting spot. In that case, Alexis Saelemaekers will keep his spot on the right side.
