Here’s the 20-man squad called up for the final showdown of the Serie A season! ⚫— AC Milan (@acmilan) May 25, 2019

It’s the last day of the Serie A season today, and Milan have everything to play for. A win and some help would see them qualify for the Champions League, but anything less could see them either stay fifth or drop down to sixth place, depending on the result of the AS Roma v Parma match. Besides a win, Milan need one of Inter Milan or Atalanta to lose or draw. Atalanta is playing a “home” game at the stadium of their opponent, Sassuolo, because of construction while Inter host relegation threatened Empoli at the San Siro.
Of the two matches, it would appear that Atalanta have the tougher path, but they’ve haven’t lost a league match since February and will be looking to qualify for the Champions League for the first time ever. Inter, on the other hand, have gone almost six weeks without a win and have only won twice since their victory over Milan in the Derby della Madonnina. Empoli have won three straight matches to drag themselves out of the relegation spots, and a win would see them avoid the drop altogether and a draw would certainly help their cause immensely.

Milan will almost certainly feature the same starting XI as they have the past few weeks, with the only possibility of change coming from Andrea Conti coming in at right back for Iganzaio Abate.
It’s all come down to this. Can Milan see this match out with a win against a SPAL team that has nothing to play for? Will this be the final match in charge of Milan for Gennaro Gattuso? It will, at the very least, be an interesting final match of the season. Forza Milan!
