After the disappointment of not being allowed to play the first-ever Derby della Madonnina between the women of Milan and Inter (in Serie A) at the stadium last year, the Rossonere will finally get to make their mark there.
The only downside against the match is that it will be played behind closed doors due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Therefore, the public will not be allowed to attend this game.
However, the fact that Milan is willing to let the women play at the San Siro is something that should not be taken lightly. It costs a lot of money to sanitize a stadium that large and to make it match ready, and the fact that Milan is willing to undertake those costs shows just how much they’re willing to invest in their women’s team.
It will also bring the team positive publicity as well, as it will be the first time that two woman’s teams will play a match at La Scala del Calcio.
Serie A Femminile is currently on hiatus due to the international break, and six of the AC Milan Women are on international duty. The players are Valentina Giacinti, Laura Fusetti, Linda Tucceri Cimini, Valentina Bergamaschi, Dominika Čonč, and Mária Korenčiová.
The former four will be suiting up for Italy, while Čonč will be suiting up for Slovenia, and Korenčiová will play for Slovakia.
Once the league resumes play, Milan will be looking to pick up where they left off. The team is currently three for three in the league, as they are second on the Serie A Femminile table. They are currently ahead of Juventus on goal difference, as the Bianconere find themselves in third place due to a sluggish start to the season.
Serie A Femminile will resume play in early October, and Milan vs Juventus will be the showpiece of what is sure to be a remarkable weekend for women’s football.
Until then, you can tide yourself over by reading about the last time AC Milan played Juventus and what a remarkable match it was.
Let’s hope for the same dynamic display this time around, and that Milan will emerge the victors of that October encounter.
