Commentary

That's all for today, goodbye! 
That's Napoli's first win away from home since early January and it takes them up to fifth in the table. Next up for them is a visit to Roma. As for Milan, they're without a win at home in over a month and stay nine points behind Inter. Pioli will be hoping they can bounce back against Manchester United in their Europa League second leg on Thursday.
Politano's second-half goal earns a 1-0 win for Napoli over Milan. It took just four minutes for Napoli to break the deadlock after half-time with a quick break that saw Zielinski pick out Politano, who nestled his shot into the far bottom corner. Milan had some great chances to get back into the game, with Ospina denying Rebic and Leao with good saves. Rebic was also sent off in stoppage time for dissent after he gave away a free-kick.
90' + 6' FULL-TIME: MILAN 0-1 NAPOLI.
90' + 4' CHANCE! Milan are throwing everything they have at Napoli's goal as the game heads into its final minutes and Saelemaekers swings a great cross into the six-yard box. Hernandez flies forward to get on it, but Maksimovic is there with him to make a very important block.
A. Rebić
Red Card
90' + 2' MILAN DOWN TO 10! Dalot uses that long switch of play out to Rebic on the left again, but this time, he can't get there ahead of Hysaj and he catches the defender late. He isn't happy about the free-kick going against him and the referee sends him off for his bad reaction.
90' + 1' Milan are still looking for a late equaliser and Hernandez goes long by switching play out to Rebic on the left. He swings a cross into the middle, but the offside flag is up against him.
Yellow Card
89' Gattuso isn't happy that the referee has been asked to go over to the monitor to look at the penalty incident and he's making his frustration clear. He's shown a yellow card for dissent.
89' VAR is having a look at the penalty incident and they've asked the referee to go over to the monitor now there's a break in play. After looking at the incident again, he sticks with his original decision and there's no penalty.
T. Hernández
Yellow Card
86' Napoli are breaking quickly and Hernandez slides in and catches Osimhen with a late challenge to stop it which earns him a yellow card.
86' There are loud shouts from the Milan players as they think they should be given a penalty. Hernandez ran onto the loose ball and has it nicked off him by Bakayoko. There's nothing in it though and the referee waves the claims away though.
84' CHANCE! Hernandez has four Napoli defenders around him but he still manages to hit a shot towards goal. He hits the shot on the half-volley, squeezing it through the defenders in front of him, but it flashes wide of the far post.
82' It's patient play from Milan as they play out from the back and try to open up some space in behind Napoli, who are sitting deep. Tonali plays a throughball into Diaz, but his first touch lets him down and it bounces straight to Koulibaly.

F. Kessié
67' There's another change for Milan now and it's Kessie that's making way for Meite.
65' SAVE! Rebic swings a great cross into the far post which is missed by Koulibaly and Leao manages to touch it on towards the bottom corner. Ospina is quickly across his line to deny him from close range.
64' Zielinski is one of three midfielders to have scored at least six goals and provided at least six assists in Serie A this season, along with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
62' Milan break quickly and Saelemaekers pulls it back for Dalot on the right, but his cross is poor and it's cleared by Ruiz. It's only as far as Saelemaekers though and he takes it around the defender before hitting a shot straight at Maksimovic.

D. Mertens
59' Napoli are making the first change of the game and it's Mertens that's making way for Osimhen.
58' GOOD SAVE! Di Lorenzo outmuscles Krunic to get onto the ball and he pulls it back to the edge of the box. Mertens lets it run to Ruiz who is running onto it and he hits it on the volley. Donnarumma reacts quickly to push it away and the midfielder can't score the follow-up.

Assist

M. Politano
Goal
49' NAPOLI LEAD! The visitors win the ball back in midfield again, and Zielinski squares it to Politano on the right of the box. His first touch takes him away from Hernandez and he drills his low shot across goal, under Donnarumma and into the far bottom corner. 1-0 Napoli! 
48' Milan have made a bright start to the second half and are putting Napoli under a lot of early pressure. It's well worked by the hosts as they work it inside from the left until Kessie touches it out onto the right, straight to Insigne.
46' Milan get us back underway for the second half!
Napoli have looked the better side and have kept the pressure on Milan, but without testing Donnarumma too often, which Gattuso will want to change after the break. As for Milan, they've struggled to get in behind the visitors and Pioli will want to see a much better attacking performance in the second half.
It's goalless at the break between Milan and Napoli. It's been a game of few clear cut chances, with Leao having the best opportunities for Milan. Ospina rushed off his line to smother the first shot, while his second one was straight at the goalkeeper from distance. At the other end, Zielinski stretched to poke the ball on target, forcing a good save from Donnarumma, while Mertens fired just wide.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: MILAN 0-0 NAPOLI.

43' CLOSE! Napoli win the ball back in midfield again and Zielinski tees up Mertens just outside the box. He drills his shot towards the far post, and Donnarumma is beaten, but it flies wide of the target.

37' It's all Napoli again now, but they just can't find a way in behind Milan as they knock it around in midfield. Ruiz is trying to make something happen for the visitors, but there's no one making a run ahead of him so he's forced to go backwards.
35' Milan are starting to find their rhythm now and they're pushing Napoli back. Castillejo squares it to Calhanoglu on the edge of the box this time, but he leans back as he takes the shot and fires it over the bar.
33' It's patient build-up from Milan as they try to open up some space on the edge of Napoli's box and Castillejo lays it off to Leao. He lets the ball bounce in front of him before hitting the shot. It's straight at Ospina but it takes him a second attempt to hold onto it.
31' Hernandez is caught by Demme on the left and Milan have a free-kick and a chance to put the ball into the box. Hernandez backheels it to Calhanoglu, but he takes too long to pick out a cross and Insigne is quickly out to smother it.

N. Maksimović
Yellow Card
25' Maksimovic steps across Tonali to stop Milan from breaking on the counter-attack so he's shown the first yellow card of the game.

22' It's a great driving run from Hysaj down the left after getting played in on the halfway line and he unselfishly tries to pick out a team-mate when he gets into the box. He squares it into the middle towards Mertens, but it's cut out by Gabbia.
20' CHANCE! Calhanoglu plays a long ball over the top and Leao does well to bring it down under pressure from Maksimovic. He takes it past the defender before trying to curl a shot into the far bottom corner, but it bounces wide of the target.
18' Milan's last Serie A home win against Napoli was back in December 2014 (2-0) - since then, they've played out two defeats followed by three draws.
16' GOOD SAVE! Di Lorenzo curls a great cross into the middle for Zielinski and he chests it down before stretching to hit the shot on the volley. It's heading into the far post, but Donnarumma dives and pushes it away with a strong hand.
14' Ruiz switches play out to Insigne and he's not closed down which gives him chance to cut inside from the left to get to the edge of the box. He fires his shot on goal, and it takes a slight deflection off Tonali, but it's still a comfortable save for Donnarumma.
12' Di Lorenzo plays a great ball over the top for Politano to chase and he's onside as he pulls away from the defenders. Donnarumma reads it well though and rushes out of his box to clear the danger for Milan.
10' Napoli are still pushing forward and keeping Milan penned back deep in their own half. Zielinski plays a throughball into Mertens on the left of the box, but his first touch is too heavy and Tomori sees it out of play.
8' Insigne has drifted into the middle of the field to try and get on the ball more and he spots that Donnarumma is off his line. He's a very long way out when he goes for goal and his shot flies well wide of the near post.
6' Castillejo just ran into the back of Mertens in his attempts to win the ball back and the forward has gone down holding his knee. Milan put the ball out of play when he stays down, but he gets back to his feet without needing treatment.
4' SAVE! It's a great throughball from Hernandez to pick out Leao's run through the middle of the box and he hits his shot across goal. Ospina is quickly off his line to smother the shot though and it's brave goalkeeping that earns him a free-kick.
2' Insigne plays a good one-two with Demme to open up more space for himself to run into down the left. He tries to pull it back for Mertens in the middle, but his cross is blocked by Dalot.
1' Mertens gets the game underway for Napoli!
The teams are coming out onto the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away.
Napoli are winless away from home since January 10th, when they beat Udinese 2-1 (D1 L4). They last had a longer run without a single away win in all competitions in September 2015 (seven).
Gennaro Gattuso makes just two changes to his side after their win over Bologna last weekend, but they're both enforced. Amir Rrahmani and Faouzi Ghoulam miss out through injury, so Maksimovic and Hysaj come in for them.
Stefano Pioli makes five changes to the team that started against Manchester United on Thursday, bringing in Gabbia, Hernandez, Tonali, Calhanoglu and Castillejo. Kjaer, Meite, Diaz and Saelemakers drop to the bench, while Davide Calabria misses out after going off injured in that game.
NAPOLI SUBS: Nikita Contini, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Alex Meret, Davide Costanzo, Stanislav Lobotka, Eljif Elmas, Mario Rui, Antonio Cioffi, Karim Zedadka, Victor Osimhen.
NAPOLI STARTING XI (4-2-3-1): David Ospina; Giovanni Di Lorenzo, Nikola Maksimovic, Kalidou Koulibaly, Elseid Hysaj; Fabiam Ruiz, Diego Demme; Matteo Politano, Piotr Zielinski, Dries Mertens; Lorenzo Insigne.
MILAN SUBS:Pierre Kalulu Kyatengwa, Antonio Donnarumma, Brahim Diaz, Simon Kjaer, Soualiho Meite, Jens Hauge, Ante Rebic, Alexis Saelemaekers, Ciprian Tatarusanu.
MILAN STARTING XI (4-2-3-1): Gianluigi Donnarumma; Diogo Dalot, Matteo Gabbia, Fikayo Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Sandro Tonali, Franck Kessie; Samu Castillejo, Hakan Calhanoglu, Rade Krunic; Rafael Leao.
Milan come into this game nine points behind Inter, but a win would see them close the gap to the top spot. They're unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions (W2 D3) but haven't won at home since the beginning of February when they beat Crotone 4-0. Napoli are unbeaten in their last four in all competitions (W3 D1) but have struggled on the road recently failing to win away in any of their previous five.
