Milan's Christian Abbiati: We Must Extend Our Lead Over Napoli

Abbiati is eager to leave Napoli in the dust by beating them on Monday.
League leaders Milan host second-placed Napoli on Monday and goalkeeper Christian Abbiati is hopeful that the Rossoneri can earn a victory at San Siro to help ease the pressure on their Scudetto run.

The southern Italian outfit currently trail the Diavoli by just three points in the Serie A table.

"It will be a great challenge. I think the stadium will be full, there will be many people there, including the Napoli supporters," he was quoted as saying by Datasport.

"Napoli is having a great season and demonstrating continuity in their results. It won't be easy as there are no easy games, but it's a very important opportunity to add some space between us and them."

Earlier in the season, Milan defeated Napoli 2-1 at the Stadio San Paolo. The two teams renew their rivalry on at 20:45 CET on Monday.
