After Wednesday's satisfying Champions League win, AC Milan immediately return to San Siro to face Spalletti's Napoli side in a top of the table clash, that closes this first round of league and cup matches as the international stage takes over. The two sides have so far started the season in fine fashion, as highlighted by their defeats column registering zero.

MILANELLO

Pioli's side have the chance to make the most of the San Siro factor to win their second game of the season against a direct rival, and win three consecutive Serie A games in a row after coming out on top in the derby and the following away win to Sampdoria. The Emilian Head Coach will have to make do without the suspended Leão and consider changing the team's formation. Messias and Saelemaekers may both find themselves starting out wide, while Charles De Ketelaere will be itching to get a starting berth after his midweek place on the bench. With Origi and Rebić still injured, Olivier Giroud will lead the Rossoneri's front line attack.

"I'm expecting a tough match, Napoli have many talented players and an extremely capable Head Coach, who is able to set up his team with a clear identity. They've made a really good start to the season;" - commented Stefano Pioli in his press conference on the eve of the game. "I consider it title-winning match because the league will be so tight that three points could make the difference come the end of the season.".
