QUIETE AND WITHDRAWAL. And then, the finishing. Immersed in the quiet of the sports center of Castel Volturno, after training on Thursday at the San Paolo, agitated by the protest. The team, as planned, found itself in the afternoon, took to the field and then moved to the hotel adjacent to the venue: for dinner and retreat. The apple of a discord that today will have to be buried in the cellar, and closed to triple delivery, because the Naples has an immense need to win: there is no other way if the stop will have to be – as it could – the useful tool to put everything back in place and to finally find the serenity necessary for the success of the season.
SURPRISE HYSAJ. As far as Carletto's choices are concerned, never predictable, Ospina should be on target with Di Lorenzo on the right; Maksimovic and Koulibaly central couple; and one between Hysaj and Luperto on the left. Yes: the Albanian is favored but the runoff is very open. Manolas, influenced and still conditioned by the costal infringement, has not been summoned, while Mario Rui is regularly in a group but not yet in top condition. Out of the list also Ghoulam, struggling with the personalized table to solve the muscular problem that haunts him from the eve of the challenge with Atalanta.
DOUBT MILIK. As for the midfield, with Allan out of the way due to a sprained right knee, Ancelotti seems to be aiming to confirm the four-line line performed with Salzburg: Callejon, Zielinski, Fabian and Insigne. In attack, however, everything revolves around the conditions and above all the feelings of Milik, author of five consecutive goals distributed in the last four league games. That is: Arek has been complaining about a physical problem for a couple of days and he is not at his best, but if today he confirms that he has fully recovered then he will play with Lozano, otherwise there will be room for Mertens with Chucky.
