AC Milan will wrap up its US tour tonight in Santa Clara, California as they take on Barcelona in the International Champions Cup. Milan has featured a fairly strong side each of the last two outings, against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, and a match against one of Spain’s top clubs should provide a pretty decent test for the young team.
Leonardo Bonucci is gone, and the new signings Mattia Caldara and Gonzalo Higuain are both back at Milan, getting ready for the new season. With Gennaro Gattuso still trying to figure out his positions and his players, and not having many of the players who were at the World Cup available, the lineup will once again look a little disjointed. We’ll likely see a similar lineup, with Patrick Cutrone up top, along regulars such as Franck Kessie, Suso, Hakan Çalhanoğlu, Alessio Romagnoli and Davide Calabria.
If this match goes as the other ICC matches have gone, Barcelona will play some of their first team players along with some fringe players in the match. Former Bordeaux winger Malcom, who spurned AS Roma to sign with Barca, will likely get another start, along with players such as Rafinha and Arthur. You won’t see Messi, but this team still has enough firepower to make Milan look silly if they really want to.
What do you want to see from Milan in this match? Will you be looking forward to seeing the first team players get another chance to work together against tougher competition, or are you looking forward to seeing some of the fringe players?
And will Nikola Kalinic make the pitch?
Let us know in the comments.
