Coming off an impressive win against Juventus in the Supercoppa Italiana, Milan should be confident ahead of their game with struggling Cagliari. Despite this, Montella has urged his players to stop celebrating their cup victory and focus on the games ahead.
With no new transfers yet, Milan will retain the same players that Montella has been so successful with this season. Currently sitting in fifth, with one game less than Napoli and Lazio, Milan will look to catapult themselves back into Champions League territory.
