Week 26’s tie at Napoli was an improvement over the 4-0 home loss to Napoli earlier in the season. It was achieved with Zapata and Alex forming a surprisingly solid defensive partnership in Romagnoli’s absence. The midfield disappointed again and Montolivo’s yellow earned him a suspension for this game vs Torino.
Torino are the visitors for week 27 and Romagnoli is said to have recovered from illness and should start, however an Alex – Zapata pairing may happen again. Torino’s back line contains two names sometimes linked to Milan. Milan’s aging defense is likely to be with out one or more of Mexes, Zapata and Alex next season and although defenders Kamil Glik and Nikola Maksimovic may never become Milan players a few attentive eyes will be on them again.
Kucka and Bertolacci will play in the center of midfield along side and Honda and week 26 goalscorer Bonaventura. Balotelli was again in the news after controversial Berlusconi comments about his skin colour and future but even without any questionable words Bacca and Niang are the only real two starting forward options.
