Gattuso: "AC Milan is a glorious club and when you play against a team like Dudelange you have everything to lose. For many of them playing in such a game is a dream come true. We need to play with great desire, otherwise it could be tough"#DudelangeMilan— AC Milan (@acmilan) September 19, 2018
Gennaro Gattuso said all the right words in his pre-match press conference yesterday, stressing that no team is to be taken lightly in the Europa League. He emphasized that matches like these, where one team is the overwhelming favorite, can often be tricky matches that can result in a surprise result.
Look for some rotation in Milan’s starting XI. This would be a match for Patrick Cutrone to start, but with him still not 100% fit, it’s hard to justify bringing him along and risking further injury. Gattuso also mentioned Alen Halilovic by name, there is a chance he could get the start, as well as Samu Castillejo.
Besides Cutrone, Ricardo Rodriguez and Giacomo Bonaventura also did not travel, so Diego Laxalt will get the start at left back, and Tiémoué Bakayoko, Andrea Bertolacci, or José Mauri could all get into the starting XI with Bonaventura out and hopefully a rest for Lucas Biglia.
