Football Italia quoted Marco Giampaolo saying that Piatek will start and the manager threw his support behind the Polish no. 9. The are conflicting reports on who will play at the left midfield spot as outlets are reporting either Calhanoglu or Paqueta could get the nod.

AC Milan News also quote Giampaolo calling for Milan to know how to suffer and grind out to win. This gives the indication that the football will be ugly and Milan will most likely look to steal a 1-0 win and lock down defensively. Lucas Biglia is expected to replace Ismael Bennacer as Giampaolo takes a defensive approach against Genoa.
