Can Milan make it seven in a row?
Following a very impressive win against Juventus on Saturday, Milan will look to replicate their performance against Genoa on Tuesday. Locatelli has proved instrumental, scoring two extraordinary goals to lead Milan to victory against Sassuolo and Juventus. Gianluigi Donnarumma has been his usual self, saving Milan from a last-second goal from Khedira.
Montella seems to understand his team exceptionally well, manoeuvring Milan to the upper echelons of the table, a place unknown to Milan fans since the 2011-2012 season. But this time around, Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva have been replaced by younger, less famous players such as Niang and Romagnoli.
Milan will look to seize a win against Genoa, who currently sit at 12th in the Serie A.
