AC Milan has not won against Napoli at San Siro in Serie A since December 2014, including 3 losses in the last 3 encounters. Therefore, Stefano Pioli and his team are expected to have a difficult match against the defending champion.
Milan defeated Napoli with Theo Hernandez’s only goal. That was a goal made after a beautiful 3-person coordination situation. The France international has shown great maturity this season and Pioli believes his student can continue to develop, quoting Football Italia:
“Theo let us play as a centre-back and he did really well in that position. But of course Theo also created a good relationship with Leao on the left. They both knew each other very clearly and can find each other.
“I think Theo struggled to find his form last season as he tried to get over the disappointment of losing in the World Cup Final. I’m not sure how his spirit will be this season, but he is very active. Theo has become the leader of this teamnot because he is a talkative person but because of his attitude.”
