MN: Milan approaching Napoli clash with confidence – Calhanoglu’s return is a key

By Isak Möller -

Milan have experienced a tough start to 2021, with a drop in performances and several injuries, but it seems they have recovered. For the clash against Napoli tomorrow, the overall situation is looking a lot better. 

As highlighted by MilanNews, the win against Hellas Verona and the draw at Man Utd has given the Rossoneri new life, not to mention the return of a few key players. Hakan Calhanoglu, Theo Hernandez and Ante Rebic will be back in action.

These returns aren’t just important from a numerical point of views, but also to inject confidence into the team for what will be a tough encounter. Having Calhanoglu back in the team is especially important, as he has shown this season.

Besides the first months of 2021, when he was struggling with injuries and COVID, he has been an absolute protagonist for Milan in the attacking phase. When he wasn’t in the team, his teammates were clearly struggling to find solutions.

With the No.10 on the pitch, as MilanNews continue, Milan score an average of 2 goals per game compared to 1.4 without him. And the win percentage is also lower without him, from 67% to 60%. His return, therefore, will be an important key.
