Milan are aching from a bunch of bad defeats and life isn’t getting much better for the Rossoneri. That’s why tonight’s game at the San Siro in the UEFA Europa League is so very important. Firstly, Milan aren’t doing too well in Serie A - and they kind of need to qualify for the Champions League, so a win here helps them progress in a tournament that offers them a chance to get into the promised land. Secondly, Milan need wins.
So, AEK Athens come at a good time, for both teams. Milan are demoralised. However, AEK Athens are a team that Milan are capable of beating!
Rijeka almost taught Milan a harsh lesson, lets hope Milan don’t fall into the same trap twice.
Here’s how you can enjoy today’s action!
Your Milan team:
Once again, we expect Gianluigi Donnarumma to start in goal with ideally a back three of Romagnoli, Musacchio & Bonucci. It’s likely that Zapata will fill in for one of those three. Ricardo Rodriguez should be backing them up on the left. Fabio Borini is Milan’s new look right-wing back.
Giacomo Bonaventura should be accompanied by Locatelli in midfield with Biglia holding it down in the middle. Hakan Calhanoglu is banned, so expect to see Suso at some point.
Andre Silva should start, and continue his fine form for Milan.
