AC Milan will take on Fiorentina today at the San Siro. Milan’s midfield will likely be a patchwork of ill-fitting pieces thrown together because of the absence of Lucas Biglia and Giacomo Bonaventura because of injury and Franck Kessie and Tiémoué Bakayoko through suspension.

The only three “central” midfielders that are on the roster are Jose Mauri, Riccardo Montolivo, and Marco Brescianini, an 18 year-old from the Primavera roster who has been pressed into duty.

Allen Halilovic and Hakan Calhanoglu are both attacking midfielders, so we’ll probably see Calhanoglu in the midfield, along with Mauri and possibly one of the fullbacks, either Diego Laxalt or Davide Calabria pressed into midfield duty.

Of course, Fiorentina haven’t been able to score, and Milan can barely stop anyone, so this will be the case of the movable object versus the stoppable force, which probably means this match ends in a draw.

While you wait for the match to start, take a look at our discussion with our friends over at Viola Nation had to say about it.

Forza Milan!
