Léo Duarte and Ricardo Rodríguez have joined the list of unavailable players and are therefore excluded for Napoli.

Milan host Napoli tomorrow at San Siro (18:00 CET) and they will look to get a big win and turn around the bad season.

Hakan Çalhanoğlu and Ismaël Bennacer are suspended but Stefano Pioli will also have to do without Léo Duarte and Ricardo Rodríguez who are now on the injured list with Castillejo and Borini.

As reported by Milannews.it and others, Duarte is out of the Napoli game after experiencing ‘severe pain in his left heel’ during today’s training session. The Brazilian center back will carry out more medical tests in the coming days. Rodríguez meanwhile has left knee pain due to an inflammation in the medial collateral ligament, which he felt after returning from representing Switzerland.

Mateo Musacchio is back available and will start alongside Alessio Romagnoli. Mattia Caldara has also been called-up and it remains to be seen whether he’ll play with the Primavera tomorrow or not.
