MN: Probable XIs for Napoli vs. Milan – Pioli reverts back to protagonists

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is expected to revert to the same line-up he has used in the last two games against Napoli for Tuesday’s second leg, a report claims.

According to a report from MilanNews, Pioli should make 10 changes from the draw against Bologna, with Mike Maignan having a defence of Davide Calabria, Simon Kjaer, Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez in front of him.

Sandro Tonali and Rade Krunic should be the double pivot in midfield with Ismael Bennacer slightly ahead of him as the disruptor to Lobotka. Brahim Diaz, Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud should play on the right, left and the centre respectively.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Tonali, Krunic; Diaz, Bennacer, Leao; Giroud.

Bench: Mirante, Thiaw, Kalulu, Florenzi, Pobega, Messias, Rebic, De Ketelaere, Origi.

Probable Napoli XI (4-3-3): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Juan Jesus, Mario Rui; Ndombele, Lobotka, Zielinski; Politano, Osimehn, Kvaratskhelia.

  1. So excited with this line up …Giroud up front leading the line ,can’t get better than that ,this man is superb and technically brilliant ,inside the 18 yard area he is simply the best …With the pace of rafeol leao and also Diaz alongside him we will pose a threat to anyone .
    Yes I expect us to win this game and qualify for the semi final of the champions leauge ..come on Olivier a goal for us please .
    We are AC Milan .

  2. Forza Milan. All what is expected of this team is to take their chances. Napoli will start well in need of a early goal. Milan should remain focus, stay compact and take their chance on the counter.

  3. As King dave said napoli will come for an early goal but if milan can hold them for 20-30 minutes they will start getting frustrated then milan can hit them on a counter and that will be it. I predict this match 1:1 draw.

  4. That back line of Napoli doesn’t look very imposing without Kim. Leao, Giroud should be chomping at the bit to go at them.

    On the other hand… kvra + osimhen is powerful up front. We are gonna be under some pressure ourselves.

    My prediction? 2-2 on the night, enough for us to setup a city Derby in the semi finals.

    Forza Milan!!!

  5. Best line-up with beautiful formation, this is a sure win for Milan to the semi-final. It’s glaring this trophy is ours. Go AC Milan my favorite team best club so far.

  6. Napoli will hand Milan a heavy defeat. Milan will be shocked what is coming at them. This next match will be a different ball game so brace.
