This match is the rescheduled first match of the season, after matches involving both Genoa-based Serie A clubs were postponed following the Morandi Bridge Collapse back in August.
Milan will reportedly be without the services of Giacomo Bonaventura against Genoa tonight after the midfielder missed out over the weekend against Sampdoria. However, with the performance of the team, minus some dodgy defending, it would not be surprising to see a very similar lineup.
Davide Calabria makes the 25 man squad, but it might be too much to expect him to recover in time for this weekend’s match after picking up an injury against Sampdoria. Early reports had him out with a sprained ankle, so it might be too much to assume that he’ll be back. Mattia Caldara’s injuries will also keep him out for awhile, so we should get used to seeing Mateo Musacchio in the starting XI until at least January.
Gonzalo Higuain and Patrick Cutrone seemed to play very well together in the victory over Genoa’s city rivals, so perhaps a move to a 4-4-2 will help jump start the Milan attack that has been wasteful much of the season.
Milan have the chance to leap into the top four and the Champions League places tonight with a victory, so here’s hoping that the Rossoneri pick up all three points.
