Milan vs Napoli live stream

Date: Sunday 18th September 2022

Kick off: 7.45pm BST / 2.45pm EST

Location: San Siro, Milan

Watch anywhere: ExpressVPN

Free stream: Paramount+ free trial (US)

The teams are in and Milan make three changes from the midweek defeat of Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League as Simon Kjaer, Rade Krunic and Charles De Ketelaere come in for Pierre Kalulu, Brahim Diaz and Rafael Leao, who misses out through suspension. Olivier Giroud starts up front, with England international Fikayo Tomori at centre-back

Napoli, meanwhile, make one change from their own Champions League victory as Giacomo Raspadori comes in for Giovanni Simeone. That means top scorer and Georgian wonderkid Khvicha Kvaratskhelia moves up front, with Raspadori starting on the left-wing. Piotr Zielinkski, ex-Fulham midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Matteo Politano all start in a team captained by Giovanni Di Lorenzo.

Defending champions Milan have lost just one Serie A fixture in 2022, a ludicrous feat which proves just how far the Rossoneri have come under Stefano Pioli. Milan are a team reborn in the past two seasons, with Olivier Giroud and Rafael Leao continuing to impress up front this season, bagging three goals each. 

Further back, Belgian wonderkid Charles De Ketelaere has settled quickly following his summer move and even totemic centre-back Simon Kjaer is now fit again. With four wins and two draws this season – and sat top of the Champions League group ahead of Chelsea – confidence is high in Milan.

Napoli, meanwhile, are level on points with Milan at Serie A's summit after a no less impressive start to the season. Though the goals haven't quite been as free-flowing since the opening day 5-2 defeat of Spezia, Luciano Spalletti's vibrant side have swept away Liverpool (4-1) and Rangers (3-0) in the Champions League, demonstrating their intensity is here to stay. 

It's a 7.45pm BST kick-off at the San Siro, Milan today Sunday 18th September, 2022. Read on for more details on how to watch a Juventus vs Roma live stream in Serie A, wherever you are in the world.

Soccer fans in the States are lucky enough to be able to watch Serie A, including Milan vs Napoli, live through Paramount Plus. Better still, you can get a 7-day free trial of Paramount+ here and after the trial ends, you'll pay just $5 a month ($10 a month if you want the ad-free plan). Paramount Plus is also home to Champions League and Europa League football, so it really is a banging deal.

Milan vs Napoli starts at 2.45pm EST on Sunday.

Of course, Paramount Plus is only available within the US. Away from home? Use a VPN to access the live stream without being blocked. We recommend ExpressVPN as it comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee.

Watch a Milan vs Napoli live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Milan vs Napoli live stream rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

How to use a VPN for Juventus vs Roma

Using a VPN is incredibly simple: 

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

3. Then head over to Paramount Plus on your browser or device and enjoy the Milan vs Napoli live stream.

If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, then do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN. You could also try NordVPN, which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark which offers 24-hour assistance.
