Probable lineups for Verona-Milan [Gazzetta dello Sport] pic.twitter.com/ADRTVaptGV— Milan Eye (@MilanEye) September 13, 2019
The International break finally comes to a close and its’s back to Serie A this weekend as Milan travel to Verona for the 3rd game of the season. As you can see the expected lineup is a 4-3-3 which seems to be the formation Giampaolo is now going to deploy hopefully getting the best out of the players we have. Rumor is that Maldini & Co had a chat with Giampaolo about integrating the new players faster than he has. It was good to see Ismaël Bennacer starting in the last game but that was not enough for Maldini; or most of the fans. All of the positive upgrades that were made this offseason need to be integrated as soon as possible. Over the break, Rafael Leão scored for the Portugal U-21’s (at the bottom) and showed shown signs of positive ideas when he got on the field for Milan. I would like to see him starting over Samu Castillejo but I doubt that will be the case in the near future.
Beating Brescia and getting the first win of the season under our belts was good and necessary for our goals. Now we must continue to get wins, especially when playing lower caliber teams. If we want to get the champions league it’s not the big game that worries me, but these games. If you look at the previous season where Milan missed the Champions League its the poor results against teams that we are supposed to beat that really slammed the door. In the last few years haven’t gotten results against Benevento in 2017, Sampdoria and Torino the last two, lastly Frosinone and Empoli in 18/19. In the end, if we want to reach our goals we can’t lose games against the likes of Udinese and Hellas Verona.
Hopefully, there have been positives gained over the break and this Milan squad will come out with a better understanding of what Giamapolo wants them to do. I’m ready to cheer the boys to a win tomorrow and as always Forza Milan!!
