It seems like ages since the AC Milan Women last played a game. Between the international break (where Italy lost while fielding two Milan players), their Coppa Italia clash against Cesena being canceled, the endless transfer rumors, and well ― everything else going on in the world, it was rather easy to forget that the women’s team will be playing again.
It doesn’t help that Milan’s social media accounts have once again, dropped the ball and forgot to promote the women’s game (again).
Fortunately, I’m here to remind you that they’ll be playing again.
A Few Pre-Match Talking Points
- Milan are currently third in the Serie A Femminile table. They’ve only lost one match so far, and it was the game against Juventus.
- Napoli are last in the table, as they have yet to win a game
- Napoli Femminile also have nothing to do with the Napoli men’s team. They are their own separate entity, with the only commonality being that they have trained at the Castel di Sangro as well.
- And though the Azzurre have yet to win a game, they still pose a deadly threat. The squad boasts a bevy of talented players, chief among them being Jenny Hjohlman and Jacynta Galabadaarachchi. The two forwards are the sting in Napoli’s tail, and one they might unleash their venom as they fight for their dear lives. They will fight like hell in order to earn a point against Milan and to remain in Serie A, so don’t underestimate them.
- During the international break, 22 of Slovenia’s players tested positive for COVID-19. It is not known if Dominika Čonč was one of them. We’ll find out today if she’s fit enough to play.
- Valentina Giacinti and Linda Tucceri Cimini both suited up for Italy against Denmark for their European qualifier on October 27th. The Azzurre lost that match, with one of the few silver linings being Giacinti’s performance. The Milan skipper scored the only goal of the match for the team. The hope is that the two of them will carry over their momentum from that match into their league game against Napoli.
This is a must-win game for the Rossonere, and may they walk away with all three points.
Possible Formation: 3-5-2. Don’t you dare ask me to list the players because I have no idea who Ganz is going to field tomorrow.
