Napoli and AC Milan face off at the Stadio San Paolo in Naples on Saturday afternoon. Normally this matchup would ooze with intrigue and have significant implications on the Serie A scudetto chase, but things are a bit different this year.
After losing 3-1 to Fiorentina at home last weekend (their sixth loss on the young season), Milan is currently 13th in the table. Napoli, on the other hand, are third, chasing Juventus and Inter Milan.
The trip to the south may be the best or worst thing for AC Milan's season. A win in hostile territory might be just the catalyst they need. A loss would only seem like something more to pile onto a season of woes.
Let's take a look at some of the key battles that will go a long way in deciding who will claim the points from this Serie A clash.
