After a big win in the Coppa Italia during the week Milan looks to keep it up as the Rossoneri visit 5th place Roma who is currently sitting one place and a point behind Milan. It appears after his nearly perfect debut in red and black Krzysztof Piątek will start again up top with most of the usual suspects returning around the field. The 2–0 win over Napoli on Thursday saw some rotation with Ignazio Abate, Diego Laxalt, Fabio Borini, and Samu Castillejo all starting the cup game. The importance of this game is shown by Gattuso’s selections midweek leaving many regular starters out in anticipation of this weekends game in Rome.
The closing of the Mercato saw Milan not make any further large acquisitions. The signings and insertion of Lucas Paquetá and Piątek to the starting XI have paid immediate dividends with Piątek scoring a brace in his first start. Each was bought for around 35 million euros and so far have been quality signings. These two with the addition of an on fire Tiémoué Bakayoko has this Milan squad looking strong and ready to take on a surging Roma.
