Abbiati ready for Napoli showdown

Christian Abbiati is looking forward to the Scudetto showdown with Napoli on Monday night, but Luca Antonini misses out.

“It will be a great battle,” grinned the Milan goalkeeper as first welcome second in Serie A.

“The stadium is going to be packed, there will be thousands of people, including Napoli supporters.

“Napoli are having a great season and the consistency of their results is the proof. It won't be easy, but this is a very important opportunity to break away at the top.”

Full-back Antonini won't be a part of the Monday night kick-off, as he has been diagnosed with a left thigh strain.
