The title says it all, but if, for some odd reason, you want to read more words then well, you’ve come to the right place (and you’ve come to the right person too).

The AC Milan Women will take on bottom dwellers Orobica Bergamo on Matchday 14 of the Serie A Femminile calendar.

Milan, if you recall, won an absolute thriller against Champions League rivals AS Roma last Monday. If the Rossonere are to keep apace in the race for Europe, they’ll have to beat the lowly sharks from Bergamo to continue their run of good form.

After having spent a great deal of energy during what was no doubt a hard-fought match, the Milan Women will be able to rest easy this week (or at least they will in theory).

Not much will change from their last game against Roma. Expect Milan to field the same 4-3-3 formation, with the only change coming in the form of who they’ll field in that line-up.

New girls Berglind Björg Thorvaldsdottir and Pamela Begić found themselves starting for Milan, while the ink on their contracts barely had any time to dry.

While most people would have drowned after being pushed off into the deep end, the two came up just swimmingly, with Thorvaldsdottir herself riding the waves and cresting her debut with two beautiful goals.

The Daughter of Thor’s Ruler temporarily became Rán, and saved a drowning Milan.

Milan has already played Bergamo once this this season. They won that encounter 4-1. The game was a stark contrast to the way they usually play against the ‘smaller’ Serie A sides, as they usually struggle to score against them. However, the acquisitions of both Bergin and Begić will hopefully help them overcome these hurdles. Of course, the only way we can know this for sure, is to see how they perform this Saturday.

The game against Bergamo will also serve as a way of further integrating the Rossonere’s winter signings into the team, in order to create cohesion and the chemistry needed to challenge the very best that Serie A has to offer.

Unless something goes horribly wrong, expect Milan to win this game, and to win this game comfortably. After all, if Juventus could beat Orobica by a Germany like score of 7-1, then why can’t Milan score at least half of those goals?

(That is unless of course, some dummy comes along and jinxes it.)

This aside, let’s hope the ragazze walk away with all three points on Saturday.
