ICYMI: The remarkable story of how #Cagliari nearly missed their trip to face #ACMilan because of farmers protesting and were only allowed out of their training ground after kicking over pails of milk.

Milan take on Cagliari at the San Siro today, although the trip that the Cagliari went on to get to Milan will probably be more memorable than the match itself today. Cagliari almost missed the trip after protesting dairy farmers had blocked the training ground in protest.
In the end, the players eventually got through after a few of the players went on tape kicking over some pails of milk in solidarity with the farmers, and their trip to Milan went ahead.
Probable lineup vs. Cagliari (4-3-3):— Milan Eye (@MilanEye) February 9, 2019
Donnarumma; Calabria, Musacchio, Romagnoli, Rodríguez; Kessie, Bakayoko, Paquetà; Suso, Piątek, Çalhanoglu [Sky]
As for the match itself, the lineup for Milan doesn’t look to have too many changes in it, with Davide Calabria, Mateo Musacchio, Alessio Romagnoli, and Ricardo Rodriguez in defense, Franck Kessie, Tiémoué Bakayoko, and Lucas Paquetà in midfield. Along with Suso and Hakan Calhanoglu, new striker Krzysztof Piatek is set to get another start up top.
Milan will be hoping to get a win this time out and not give up an early goal as they did in the reverse fixture this season. Milan have been in pretty good form and have looked solid at home at the San Siro, so Milan should be able to get past Caligari. If this team wants to be taken seriously as a contender for a Champion League spot, these are the kinds of games that Milan should be winning with ease.
Can Piatek continue his good form and keep the goals coming? Can Paquetà continue to provide a spark in midfield? And will the defense hold? Let us know what you think in the comments.
