Napoli need a big win over their rivals on Saturday.

One of the biggest matches of every season for Napoli is here, because it's time to play AC Milan at the San Siro. There's plenty of reason to feel confident about this match, of course, but that doesn't change the fact that it's going to be a tough game.

With Vlad Chiriches out injured and both Kalidou Koulibaly and Faouzi Ghoulam at AFCON, Napoli's back line is looking a little patchwork. Fortunately Lorenzo Tonelli has been in strong form and Ivan Strinic has played decently, so Napoli should survive.

That defense will be tested, though, because Milan's attack has been in good form of late. Fortunately, however, the midfield providing service for that attack is a mess, with only Juraj Kucka playing a familiar role, and neither of the pair in front of him being particularly good providers.

Still, Napoli need to be at their best today. They can ill afford dropped points right now, and a win at the San Siro would be excellent for their momentum.

Milan: Donnarumma; Abate, Paletta, Gomez, Calabria; Kucka, Sosa, Pasalic; Suso, Bacca, Bonaventura

Napoli: Reina; Hysaj, Albiol, Tonelli, Strinic; Allan, Jorginho, Hamsik; Callejon, Mertens, Insigne
