MAREK JANKULOVSKI seems likely to play from the first minute against Napoli on Monday.
Coach Massimiliano Allegri has one more training to manage before the big game against S.S.C. Napoli on Monday night at Stadio San Siro at 20:45.
In today’s training, Allegri fielded the players who are likely to play from the start against the Azzurri.
The Italian press reports that Marek Jankulovski is favourite over Massimo Oddo to play on the left side of the defense as first choice Luca Antonini is injured and Gianluca Zambrotta is in doubt.
Jankulovski hasn’t played much this season but since Oddo finds it hard on the left, Allegri, as for this moment, prefers to play with the Czech.
As for the midfield – Kevin-Prince Boateng is favourite over Alexander Merkel to play alongside Gennaro Gattuso and Mark van Bommel.
Boateng has returned from injury last week and played a little as a substitute against Chievo, but since Alexander Merkel is too inexperienced, Allegri would choose the 23-year-old Ghanaian.
Likely line-ups (4-3-1-2): Christian Abbiati; Ignazio Abate, Alessandro Nesta, Thiago Silva, Marek Jankulovski; Gennaro Gattuso, Mark van Bommel, Kevin-Prince Boateng; Robinho; Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Alexandre Pato.
