After giving up a 2–0 lead to Napoli last week and eventually losing 2–3, Milan hopefully can get their first win of the season and take some points off a top 4 competitor. Roma has 4 points through their first two games, with one win, and four players who have all scored a goal including their main goal producer Edin Dzeko.
Probable line up vs Roma (4-3-3):— TheMilanBible (@TheMilanBible) August 29, 2018

The end of Hakan Calhanoglu’s suspension means he will most likely be back in the starting lineup. Hopefully, with him back on the wing, there will be better service to Gonzalo Higuain, giving the Argentine more clear opportunities than he was able to get against Napoli. Still, the biggest news from the projected starting lineup Sky released is that it looks like Mattia Caldara may have already passed Mateo Musacchio and will get his debut start for the Rossoneri this week against Roma. One can only hope that this is the beginning of a long and prosperous partnership between him and Alessio Romagnoli for both club and country.
