The potential for a Serie A first and fourth team match will be weakened by staff losses on both sides. In addition to the fact that Rafael Leau was injured, “Milan” also lost his coach – due to coronavirus. Initially, the media assumed that if Pioli was unavailable in this meeting, Milan would be led by his assistant Giacomo Murelli, but no. The acting head coach of the Rossoneri on Sunday will be Daniele Bonera, who gave Milan almost ten years of his career.
Tifosi in anticipation: a battle of two red-black legends will take place on « San Paolo ». Who would have thought that the 2020/21 season would give us another Milan derby on the coaching bridge – following the confrontation between Gattuso and Filippo Inzaghi.
For most of this week Bonera led the team in Milanello, staying in close contact with Pioli. Moreover, y and. about. there was a complete carte blanche for making certain tactical and personnel decisions. According to Bonera, Pioli will not contact the team before the match via video link – it was decided to abandon this venture.. But if in the first half something does not go according to plan, the head coach of Milan will call Bonera during the break.
Leau suffered a thigh injury in the match for the Portuguese youth team and was eliminated for at least a few weeks. With this, Rafael freed up a place in the starting lineup for Ante Rebic.
Napoli have much more losses among players: Amir Rrahmani and Elsid Husai caught the coronavirus, and Viktor Osimhen injured his shoulder in the game for the Nigeria national team. Also, a few days before the game, the press reported that David Ospina was not ready to enter the field on Sunday due to an injury received in the match for the Colombia national team, but the main goalkeeper of Napoli miraculously healed. TuttoSport confidently writes that Ospina will play at the start against Milan, while the second goalkeeper of Napoli Alex Meret can count on playing time in the next meeting with Rijeka in the Europa League.
In the matches with Sparta and Verona, Zlatan Ibrahimovic failed to convert two penalties, so before playing in Naples, the forward himself decided to give the status of a regular penalty taker to someone else. Either Pioli or Bonera made the decision that this someone would be Frank Kessier. This means that from a purely statistical point of view, the chances that Zlatan will score a goal in the upcoming and subsequent matches are significantly reduced..
In general, I think that “Napoli” should take advantage of the fact that in the first half the inexperienced Daniele Bonera will have a complete carte blanche.
