Suso’s out, but Ivan Strinic is in the matchday squad.

Samu Castillejo is expected to take Suso’s place in the lineup, and Lucas Biglia is fit enough to be in the squad, although with the way that the midfield is currently playing, there is little chance that he’ll be recalled to the starting lineup.

Strinic had a pretty significant medical scare last autumn after transferring to Milan from Sampdoria after the World Cup in Russia in 2018. But it appears that he’s fit enough and ready to finally make an appearance for Milan.
