Napoli, who fell short of the Scudetto after placing second to Juventus in the Serie A overall standings last season, was shocked by freshly-promoted team Delfino Pescara 1936 as the two sides settled to a 2–2 stalemate on Sunday. It wasn’t the start Partenopei were expecting as the team undoubtedly missed the services of Serie A’s top goalscorer Gonzalo Higuaín, who moved to their nemesis Juve in the summer window for a record Italian fee of £75.3 million.
Meantime, Milan barely snatched a 3–2 victory from Torino FC at their home field of Stadio Giuseppe Meazza also last Sunday. Rossoneri should be grateful to a 17-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma who had saved a crucial penalty right at the end of added time. Team news for AC Milan are, Andrea Bertolacci is injured, while defender Gabriel Paletta misses out through suspension.
