Milan-Napoli key, says Galliani

Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani has underlined the significance of Sunday’s game against Napoli.

The Rossoneri are looking to finish the season in second – thus avoiding the Champions League preliminaries – and they are currently in third, one place and four points adrift of the Azzurri.

“It’s a very, very, very important match,” he stated on Friday. “In the space of three games, we would have played against the team in fourth [Fiorentina], second [Napoli] and first [Juventus].

“This is the key stage of the season,” he added. “Napoli are a direct rival and it is even more vital given the regrets of Florence.”

The Diavolo took a 2-0 lead in Tuscany last week, but 10-man Fiorentina hit back to collect a 2-2 draw.

“We probably would have accepted a draw before the game, but not during it when you consider what occurred.”
