AC Milan v Napoli is undoubtedly the standout fixture from Serie A Matchday 7 with two title hopefuls facing off at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Sunday night. Both come into the weekend with 14 points and sit either side of second-placed Atalanta, with Napoli top and Milan currently third.
Each of the pair just about scraped past weaker opposition last time out in Serie A, having each been in Champions League action previously. This week sees the very same situation, with Milan having played Dinamo Zagreb and Napoli having faced Rangers in midweek.
