First game in a while we go in as underdogs (against inter a draw was predicted by a lot because of their injuries), interesting to see how we react

Toughest game on par with the derby for us since the Juve game, on paper at least.

We're the kind of team that Napoli will really struggle with. They can't press us since we have the best outball in football history, and Leao, Rebic, Saelemaekers can be devastating in wide open space.

I'd say their Achilles heel are low block defenses. They looked pathetic against AZ.
They have a lot of counter-threats, but no Ibra type of player who can dominate in a crowded box. They have also been wasteful for a long time and Osimhen does not look like the striker who could fix or even reduce that problem one bit.

They outplayed us badly last time. Kessie-Bennacer got overrun.
The match tempo was way too fast for Ibra.
We were at the mercy of their finishing.
The question is how much of it was down to Paqueta who was shocking that night. He was all over the place, messing with our on and off ball structure, and also making uncharacteristic poor touches. Things improved considerably when Saelemaekers came on and replaced him on the right flank, but Napoli were also tired at that point. Ibra never really got into the game. The team only made a real push for an equalizer when he was taken off for Leao, who switched roles with Rebic.

I don't think they'll even make Top 3.
Not even Top 4 is a certainty. They dont have a dependable goalscorer.

However I consider them as faves going into this game.
They are the type of team we struggle against, and San Paolo is San Paolo even when it's empty.

Koulibaly has been a joke since Rino was appointed.
Their defense looks better without him.

This game has 2-2 draw written all over it with a warm embrace between Pioli and Gennaro afterwards

Come on, little anosmia never hurt any1, Victor, Insigne, Mertens, Ruiz, & Koulibaly to miss the game.

Sure they struggle against a good low block, but who doesn't? I think once we break their press, which is their biggest weapon, we will find a LOT of space since they push up really, really high and their fullbacks aren't as good as they used to be. Lozano and Insigne don't help out and they can really get stretched in transition, which is what happened with Sassuolo.

I don't know if Saelemaekers will make it to the game but if he doesn't we might as well just play Leao on the right and destroy Mario Rui.

1 - 3 and a bitter embrace from Gattuso, and a smug satisfied Pioli afterwards.

With Osimhen injured I wouldn't be surprised if Rino goes back to a 433 and play Mertens up front alone. Maybe keep Petagna as an option later if he needs to.

Does this mean Mini Pioli will take charge
