Napoli vs Milan
The Serie A match between Napoli and Milan at the Stadio San Paolo looks special because Napoli’s new manager Carlo Ancelotti is about to face his favourite team in Italy – the team he led twice to European glory. But there ain’t no place for sentimental feelings here, because you can be sure that both teams will want to win and follow their goals in the league.
Napoli started the new campaign in the Calcio in the best way possible – winning their tough fixture against Lazio at the Olimpico. The legendary Carlo Ancelotti had the tough task to replace the former manager Maurizio Sarri, who chose to leave for Chelsea. It’s not easy to replace such a capable manager, but surely Ancelotti was a perfect pick for the job.
It’s difficult for anyone to say that they can rival Juventus for the title, but surely Napoli will try to doot is as much as they can. In certain moments of the last season, it really looked like they can win the gold medals. Well – it didn’t happen, but Napoli showed that they can be contenders. Let’s see how they are going to perform this time when they have another great manager like Ancelotti at the helm.
Milan’s first game for the new season in the Serie A was postponed, so now the Rossoneri will actually play their first match for the new campaign. After signing some very good players during the summer market, Milan hopes that somehow they will manage to finish in the Top 4 and return to the Champions League. But given the fact how big the competition is, this won’t be easy at all.
This is our take on the Serie A clash between Napoli and Milan at the Stadio San Paolo in Naples. This is a classic “teacher against the student” clash because Carlo Ancelotti will face his former player Gennaro Gattuso.
