With AC Milan’s backline there for the taking, the club has endured several unsettling moments defensively. However, despite their beleaguered showings, the side has managed to come out unblemished owing to shot stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Given the ramifications at stake from today’s contest with both the clubs looking to reign in a massive win, the likelihood of a cleansheet looks extremely bleak. Both should go onto concede atleast the one goal today, a narrative which sees us limit our set of picks to just the three defenders.
With AC Milan slightly better well versed than Napoli’s backline, we have the duo of Davide Calabria and Simon Kjaer represent us from the side. Napoli on the other hand will be represented by the versatile Mario Rui who has waded his way persistently into the side’s attacks.
He’s gone off the boil after a searing start to the season but Hirving Lozano’s four goals continue to see him remain as Napoli’s top scorer this season. Lorenzo Insigne who has thudded home the two goals will give him company for the tie, two players who are integral parts of Napoli’s gameplan.
Despite missing out on the season’s start due to a lengthy injury, Hakan Calhanoglu has taken no time to hit the ground running with him already popping up with an assist. The tenacious Franck Kessie also finds a place in our team from the club with him discovering a new side to his game with two scorching goals.
The imperious Alexis Saelemaekers has disrupted up attacking plays with a string of tackles and blocks to see him constitute the trio from the side.
Scoring 8 goals and providing an assist inside just 7 matches for his side, Zlatan Ibrahimovic makes for an instant pick for us for the day’s soiree. Napoli will see Dries Mertens be ingrained in our side with him having strung together the two goals and two assists for the side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
AC Milan’s top scorer, Zlatan will captain our team for the day while Dries is the vice-captain.
Donnarumma, Calabria, Kjaer, Rui, Hakan, Kessie, Alexis, Lozano, Insigne, Zlatan, Dries
