Sky: Milan’s likely XI vs. Napoli – Summer signing set for first start; two changes from Juve
By Oliver Fisher -

Ante Rebic is in line for his first ever start as an AC Milan player when Milan host Napoli at San Siro on Saturday, a report claims.

Milan have never lost eight of their first 13 games to begin a season, and with the team currently sat on seven losses through the opening 12 rounds, a defeat against former manager Carlo Ancelotti would set an unwanted club record.

However, they will meet a Napoli side in disarray too as the squad mutinied against a training retreat which was issued by club president Aurelio De Laurentiis following a poor string of results.

According to Peppe Di Stefano of Sky Italia (via MilanNews.it), Stefano Pioli will make two changes from the side which lost 1-0 to Juventus, due to the suspensions picked up by Ismael Bennacer and Hakan Calhanoglu in that game.

The journalist states that Ante Rebic will take the place of the latter on the left wing, while Lucas Biglia will come in as the regista.

Probable Milan XI (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Conti, Duarte, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Paqueta, Biglia, Krunic; Suso, Piatek, Rebic.
