Milan will look to advance to the knockout rounds of the Europa League today with a victory or draw in the match against Olympiacos. Milan can also advance with a loss, provided the Italian giants still have a greater goal difference, meaning they can lose by one goal and still advance. However, news around the team makes it seem that Milan will likely start a fairly strong side, as Gennaro Gattuso looks to make no mistake in advancing.
Mateo Musacchio is fit enough to be named in the matchday squad, but is unlikely to feature in the match, as it has been reported that he is set to return for the match against Bologna. Suso was said to be undergoing a late fitness test, so it is unlikely that he gets a start, and he’s appeared a bit tired in matches lately and could really use the rest.
Olympiacos lost in their visit to the San Siro in the second match of the group stage, but made Milan work for the victory, as a Patrick Cutrone brace, along with a Gonzalo Higuain goal, were all scored after the 70th minute as Milan fell behind. Gattuso and the team will be looking to avoid that kind of result today.
So will Milan get an early goal or two and put this game to bed in the first half? Or will the club leave it late or make it far more nerve-racking that it has to be? Let us know what you think in the comments!
