Fans were perhaps right to wonder why Andrea Poli was getting a start. However Jeremy Menez gave something to celebrate early on. A passing play involving Riccardo Montolivo and Giacomo Bonaventura was finished off well by the Frenchman. The first half was otherwise ok. Early in the second half Bonaventura headed in a Pablo Armero cross to double the lead. As in the first goal the Napoli defence didn’t exactly enhance their reputation. Minutes later Adil Rami was subbed out due to injury but Milan played well and Diego Lopez did well when called upon.
A win and three potentially crucial points heading to Rome for the final match before the holiday break.
