AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri insists they're a match for Napoli.

Napoli are regarded as favourites for today's game.

“I think the only reason Napoli are considered to be favourites is because they have nine points. We are missing the points from our game with Verona,” said Allegri.

“Napoli are playing good football and they have a good collective. Rafa Benitez has done well, as it was difficult to change the side after so many years to adopt a 4-4-2 system. It is going to be a balanced game."

Milan have stuttered so far this term, losing to Verona and scraping a last-gasp 2-2 draw with Torino.

“I didn’t expect us to have a better start to the season, as the important thing is we end the games running hard. Of course, the Champions League preliminary round cost us a lot of energy and we have to chase the others, but there’s a long way to go.”
