Players to Watch

Ciprian Tatarusanu

Tatarusanu had a terrible game last time out against AS Roma conceding three goals all where he could’ve done better. This assessment is tough but that is what’s expected when you are trying to fill in Gianluigi Donnarumma’s shoes. The keeper will need to brush off his last performance and hold down the fort to allow Milan to pick up a key three points.

Bořek Dočkal

Dockal will be the toughest player for Milan to manage. The rotation of the midfield will mean that we don’t get the rock solid Kessie-Bennacer partnership. Milan will need to shut down the Sparta Prague no. 10 who scored in the previous game and is the main creative outlet for his side. If the midfielders can pressure and overwhelm him, Milan can disrupt the opposition’s play.

Rade Krunic

Krunic will likely get another opportunity to impress Milan fans at CAM. He put in a stunning performance last time out where he scored against Celtic FC with a good late run into the box and a slight header. The midfielder has been underused since he joined but is now making a case for being a key contributor to the squad.

Prediction

Milan 3 - 1 Sparta Prague
