It will be a fascinating Sunday night encounter between Napoli and AC Milan for a number of reasons, particularly tactical areas.
As Tuttosport points out (via MilanNews), there are a number of key duels that will help determine the outcome of the game at the San Paolo Stadium.
Perhaps the most important is the fight between Ibrahimovic and Koulibaly as the Senegalese international has to keep the league’s top scorer calm.
There will also be a fascinating duel between Ante Rebic – who will play close to Ibrahimovic and thus central – and Kostas Manolas, the central defender of Koulibaly.
At the other end, Insigne will try to beat his Italian teammate Calabria while Romagnoli will have to watch out for Dries Mertens, who will play as a center-forward due to Osimhen’s injury-related absence.
Finally, the reunion of Bakayoko and Kessié will be a fantastic spectacle as both are challenged to bring balance and physical strength to their respective teams. The Ivorian recovers an average of 7. 4 balls per game against Bakayokos 5. 8, La Gazzetta dello Sport (via PianetaMilan) reported.
