Official: Napoli vs. Milan starting XIs – Ante Rebic returns to the line-up

By Oliver Fisher -

There are no surprises in the starting XI that Daniele Bonera has named for AC Milan’s crucial clash with Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo.

Milan will be without winger Rafael Leao for the game in Naples as he has sustained a problem in his thigh that is likely to keep him out for two weeks.

Milan will be led out by Bonera given that Pioli and his assistant Giacomo Murelli are both COVID-positive, and the back four consists of Davide Calabria, Simon Kjaer, Alessio Romagnoli (who has recovered from his flexor problem) and Theo Hernandez.

In midfield, it will be the immovable pairing of Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer, with Alexis Saelemaekers (also back available), Hakan Calhanoglu and Ante Rebic in behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Official Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Calabria, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Kessie, Bennacer; Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Rebic; Ibrahimovic.

Official Napoli XI (4-3-3): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Manolas, Koulibaly, Mario Rui; Fabian Ruiz, Bakayoko, Elmas; Lozano, Mertens, Insigne.
