With Napoli as the lord and master of the Serie A leadership after five games, with a perfect record of five victories and only two goals against, Inter and Milan do not want to be left behind or lose their lead. Those of Simone Inzaghi, better positioned due to their scandalous number of goals in favor (18), will bid to maintain their form against Atalanta at the Giuseppe Meazza.
They had a difficult week after equaling against Sampdoria in the league and losing to Real Madrid in the Champions LeagueBut the 6-1 win against Bologna revitalized their hopes and now is not the time to slow down. Those of Giampiero Gasperini, surely, will not make it easy at all: they also fight not to lose the rhythm in the lead.
For its part, Stefano Pioli’s Milan faces a match against Spezia with an obligation to score three points. The ‘rossonero’ coach received the good news of the return of Olivier Giroud, back after his low back pain problems and called up for this weekend.
Without Zlatan, injured last week, Ante Rebic is expected to be the starter and the experienced French attacker will wait his turn on the bench, all with a view to having him in full condition for the Champions League match against Atlético de Madrid.
