Napoli player to watch: Gonzalo Higuain
The Argentina international has had a superb performance so far. He has scored twice in Serie A and once in the Champions League.
Higuain has been a cornerstone for Napoli and has not disappointed the fans or the staff.
When Edinson Cavani left Naples, the main concern was his replacement. El Pipita has proven to be an excellent option. He brings his experience with River Plate and Real Madrid to Rafael Benitez's team.
Gonzalo comes to this match inspired, having scored his 10th Champions League goal, against Borussia Dormund, and his first one at Stadio San Paolo, against Atalanta.
Physically and technically, Higuain is better than ever.
Milan player to watch: Nigel De Jong
With Kaka, Ricardo Montolivo and Andrea Poli on the injury list, Nigel de Jong will have his hands full in the midfield.
The Dutch footballer has to keep the ball and distribute it with intelligence. Napoli may lack a strong backbone but their offense is very efficient.
Gonzalo Higuain, Jose Callejon, Marek Hamsik and Lorenzo Insigne will put Milan in distress. De Jong has to step up and stay strong, just like he did against Celtic.
Napoli's winless record at San Siro goes as far back as 1986.
However, this time the Partenopei have momentum on their side. They are unbeaten and have the best offense of the league, with nine goals for.
Playing at San Siro will be an advantage for the Rossoneri but let's not forget that they are still struggling to find their game and the constantly growing injury list does not help.
Milan have to keep the ball as much as possible and profit from Mario Balotelli's speed to unbalance Napoli.
