AC Milan vs Napoli LIVE in the Serie A: Players to watch out for
Dries Mertens (Napoli):
The Belgian is one of Napoli’s best players. Mertens has 5 goals in Serie A and 1 goal in the UEFA Europa League. He would be looking to add to his tally against an injury-plagued Milan defence.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic (AC Milan):
Even with all the talent on the Milan side, we can’t look away from the majestic Swede, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Ibrahimovic has 7 goals and 1 assist in 10 Serie A games and he would be the favourite to score again.
