Matchday 2: Napoli - Milan (Saturday, August 27th - 20:45 CET)
Well, since we won the first game of the season and I opened that thread, I figured I would try my luck again. If things don't work out, than I'll step aside and let Mystik take over.  Sagrin

It really would be beyond expectations to start the season with 6 out of 6 points. I am excited to see Gomez play alongside Romagnoli and I really hope for a much better performance from our midfield. 

It would be nice for Montolivo to be demoted to the bench, but in all honesty, who else do we play in that position at this point. I don't want to throw Locatelli into the fire again, and with Bertolacci being injured I really don't see another option. 

Antonelli should be demoted to the bench after that horror show last week, so De Sciglio it is for this one imo. 

Gigio - Abate, Gomez, Romagnoli, DES - Montolivo, Kucka, Bonaventura - Niang, Bacca, Suso
A really tough start for Gomez, debut in Naples. Hopefully he keeps his nerve and manages it well. (No Ely 2.0 but T. Silva 2.0 haha)
He has played in the much more sinister atmosphere of the Argentine league. I am sure he will be fine. Playing at La Bomobonera or Monumental is not easy.
Probable formation from Gazetta:

Donnarumma - Abate, Gomez, Romagnoli, MDS - Montolivo, Kucka, Bonaventura - Suso, Bacca, Niang

I'm glad that MdS is likelly to play. Antonelli was just terrible the other day.
nefremo: I certainly like the break so you can quite happily continue opening threads Big Grin

Siamo a posto cosi.
Really looking forward to this game! A bit nervous with Gomez-Romagnoli. Hope it will work out!
Personally I'd be happy with a draw.
Donnarumma; Abate, Gomez, Romagnoli, De Sciglio; Kucka, Montolivo, Bonaventura; Suso, Bacca, Niang
Good counter, Niang had a lot of space but couldn't shoot well
Abate shoots high when open on the left of Reina, bad miss from Niang cross.
