AC Milan stumbled home against Craiova last week, they got half the job done - but they didn’t make it easy - and take an away goal into their game at the San Siro. And what a goal it was! Ricardo Rodriguez stole the show with an expert freekick that baffled Craiova.
Now? Milan bring European Football back to the San Siro - and what a turnout we are expecting!
Your Predicted Milan Lineup:
XI: G. Donnarumma, Rodriguez, Conti, Zapata, Musacchio, Bonaventura, Locatelli, Kessie, Niang, Cutrone, Borini
Riccardo Montolivo had a disastrous game against Craiova over in Romania and almost gave the lead to Craiova. Expect him to sit for Locatelli if Biglia isn’t registered in time.
Cutrone might miss out so Andre Silva can get some minutes - which is a shame. The youngster should have had a goal, but was denied by the post. He might make a substitute appearance, though, if he doesn’t start. Silva is suffering with a small injury right now.
As for Craiova, they didn’t look good against Milan, but one man seriously impressed. Alexandru Mihail Băluță was a threat and all Milan need to do to ruin this cup tie is to give away a dangerous free kick. Don’t take this for granted Milan

Prediction: Milan 2 - 1 Craiova
AC Milan should be too much for Craiova, but I’d expect a set-piece goal from Craiova, who proved they were no pushovers - however, there will be a huge crowd at the San Siro.
