I Wouldn't Be Surprised If Napoli Beat Milan - Former Italy International Jose Altafini

Jose Altafini has made it clear that he could see Napoli beating Milan on Monday.
Former Italy international Jose Altafini expects an exciting game when Milan face Napoli this evening, and added that a win for the Partenopei wouldn't surprise him.

The Rossoneri are table-toppers and take on their rivals from Naples in what could prove to be a crucial game in the battle for the Serie A title.

Altafini, who wore the jerseys of both Milan and Napoli during his active career, was quoted as saying by La Gazzetta dello Sport:"The two best teams of the championship will lock horns and picking up the full three points is a must for either side. It's very hard to predict the final result.

"What a win would mean for each team? Milan would create a big gap over Napoli and would get a real confidence boost. Even though they don't have an easy schedule, it would still be a boost for their Scudetto chances.

"However, a win for Napoli wouldn't really surprise me. They have so far been the only team who have been able to keep up with Milan. Not many of the other teams have been able to perform as consistently as Napoli."
