SSC Napoli vs AC Milan - Competition: Italian Serie A

SSC Napoli will look to overcome their last week’s defeat against Atlanta where they lost 3-0. Rafa Benitez's men have been having their ups and downs this season and, as a result, they are 15 points adrift of league leaders Juventus ahead of Saturday's clash against Milan. In midweek the team suffered a 3-2 defeat at Roma in Coppa Italia semi-finals, first leg.Mesto and Zuniga are long term injuries for Napoli and also Reveillere has muscles concerns so Ghoulam will likely be in the starting lineups. Behrami is fit but will sit on the bench. Mertens is expected to feature along with Callejon and Hamsik as support for the lone striker Higuain.
Probable lineups SSC (4-2-3-1): Reina; Maggio, Albiol, Fernandez, Ghoulam; Dzemaili, Jorginho; Callejon, Hamsik, Mertens; Higuain.
 
AC Milan have struggled away from home winning just 2 of the their last 11 away games in the league but Clarence Seedorf has overseen something of a resurgence since taking over as Milan coach, with his side having taken seven points from the last nine available.
Balotelli returns from his suspension and could go straight into the starting XI, Kakà is doubtful, El Shaarawy is still unavailable as well as Birsa, Cristante and Zapata. Bonera is suspended and will be replaced by Mexes. Taarabt should debut in the 'trequartista' trio with Honda and Robinho.
AC Milan have scored at least 2 goals in 8 of their last 10 away matches in Serie A while the Partenopei are undefeated in 20 of their last 21 home matches in Serie A.
Probable lineups AC Milan: (4-2-3-1): Abbiati; Abate, Ramì, Mexes, De Sciglio; De Jong, Montolivo; Honda, Robinho, Taarabt; Balotelli.
