ML: Probable Milan XI to face Napoli – Paqueta to the bench; Rebic and Calhanoglu start

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are in search of a third win in a row. Beating Napoli would mean a third consecutive victory against a direct rival.

According to MilanLive, Hakan Calhanoglu should return to the starting XI having been left out of the line-up against Juventus, a game in which he came on at half-time and made a big impact.

His condition will be evaluated in the remaining training sessions, while Pioli at the press conference on Saturday will clarify the situation.

If the Turkey international were to start it would then be a question of whose spot he takes, as Alexis Saelemaekers, Lucas Paquetà and Ante Rebic all played against Juve from the first minute.

The Brazilian is the most likely to remain on the bench if Pioli were to start Calhanoglu against Gennaro Gattuso’s side, the report adds.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Conti, Kjaer, Romagnoli, T. Hernandez; Kessie, Bennacer; Saelemakers, Rebic, Calhanoglu; Ibrahimovic.
