If the Milan lineup looks different tomorrow I would not be surprised. Numerous reports that have been flying around all week about a shift in Milan’s formation. As you can see about Sky believes that Milan will walk out in a 4-1-3-2 with alternate reports that Milan will shift to a 4-4-2 or stay in Rino Gattuso’s favored 4-3-3.
It will be interesting to see who starts in this game with some injuries holding regulars out and the need to get a result. Franck Kessie and Hakan Calhanoglu carrying injuries they will most likely not feature for the Rossoneri this week. Andrea Conti is close to returning from his knee injury but not quite there yet. Mattia Caldara seems to be available this week but most of the lineup predictions still have him on the bench.
Milan’s performance over the next few games could determine the fate of Gennaro Gattuso as rumors are swirling about his potential firing and replacement. These have all been denied and we have no way of knowing if any of these reports are accurate. In the end, it doesn’t matter because winning solves everything and as long as points are taken in these games and Milan gets to a better place in the table it can all be forgiven. The reality is that Milan’s quest for the Champions League is vital and we cannot drop points to teams like Sampdoria if we want to reach that goal.
