A new look AC Milan travel to Napoli today for their Seria A heavyweight clash and got off to the ideal start thanks to a Giacomo Bonaventura wondergoal.
In a game that sees Napoli boss Carlo Ancelloti return to face his former club, now managed by a man he know's well, Gennaro Gattuso. It was Bonaventura's extraordinary bicycle kick that broke the deadlock after some good work from Fabio Borini.

The early exchanges were notable for the reception Gonzalo Higuaín received from his former club. His touches were greeted by a deafening chorus of boos throughout the first half.
Soon after the goal, it boiled over when Suso collided with Lorenzo Insigne which saw the pair booked.
With Juventus off to a perfect start with two wins from two, both sides will know a win over their top four rivals could be crucial in keeping with the defending Champions.
