Secure position

AC Milan face a tough trip to Napoli as they continue their push for a top three finish and automatic entry into next season's Champions League group stages.

The clash in Naples will be the latest step in achieving that objective and they will be looking to maintain their six-point lead over fourth placed Genoa, who host Udinese.

And Napoli is now under former Italy coach and Milan midfielder Roberto Donadoni, who is taking charge of his first home match.

Napoli have not won in 10 league matches but the mood around the camp has improved since Donadoni's arrival.

"Donadoni's arrival will have made things even harder but if we win then third place is in the bag," said Gattuso, who is not likely to play again this season due to a cruciate knee ligament injury sustained in December.

"We face a difficult opponent, of great quality and used to great stages, but my lads gave me the sensation of having a strong desire of returning to do important things." Donadoni said, reported by Milan official website.

Ronaldinho and Inzaghi are in good condition. Kaka was available but the coach Ancelotti didn't think that Kaka will start from the beginning.

The goalkeeper Dida could make his comeback at Serie A. Dida will play instead of Abbiati who will have to miss the rest of the season due to this injury following a clash with a team-mate (Gianluca Favalli) in the first half of the match against Siena which the Rossoneri won 5-1.

"I see Donadoni more as a friend than as a rival. I’m happy for him that he settled down and that he found a club like Napoli, who is ambitious and allows him to express at best his qualities andh is great experience as a coach.” Ancelotti said.
