The multi-champion started on the right foot. In the first round, they managed to reach the three points with a victory, of turning, in the classic with Lazio, in Rome. This heightened hopes that the club will be able to break Juventus’ hegemony, which has won the last seven Italian Serie A editions. Last season, Napoli accumulated four points less than Turin’s alvinegro.
The good result in the capital must cause Ancelotti to repeat the team to face the Milanese. The only change that can occur is in the goal. Colombian David Ospina, who was hired with Arsenal, came in with starting status and is likely to be related to the classic. If that happens, the Greek Orestis Karnezis, 33, will return to the reserve bench.

This is not the only problem that Gattuso will have to deal with. He may have up to four embezzlements due to the injury. They are in the care of the medical department the Spanish goalkeeper Pepe Reina, who defended Napoli in the last three seasons and decided to change airs; besides defenders Ignazio Abate, Andrea Conti and Ivan Strinic.
