What to watch for from the Milan derby

On Saturday’s Serie A fixture between Milan and Napoli, we saw the biggest clash between two teams this season, but a few things worth watching for.

Here are our predictions for the match.


The atmosphere Milan have been looking to create this season has not been there so far and Milan are looking to play with a sense of urgency and aggression.

The players have struggled to make an impact so far this season and have been unable to match the level of effort and intensity of Napoli this season.

This is an important game, one which will see a lot of players, and the crowd, getting involved.

There will be lots of shots, and lots of passion.


The style of play It has not looked like the Milan side we saw in pre-season, and they have not really been in the mood to take risks and play the way they want to play.

This will be a physical match with some intense intensity and physicality and that will be the hallmark of this match.

Milan will be trying to score a lot on the counter-attack and Milan’s style of football will be at odds with Napoli’s.

The Giallorossi will also try to control the game in midfield, using the same 4-3-3 that they have been playing in recent weeks.

The Milan side are still young and are likely to get used to the different styles of play, so they may be forced to make some adjustments.


The result The Milan derby will be in the air for the majority of the game and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.

Both teams have looked decent in preseason, but it will also be interesting if Milan’s players can show a more convincing performance than they have so far.

It will be another important game for Milan to get their first win of the season and their first in Serie A.
