Milan have done well so far in the competition but need to close off the games to get some points.

AC Milan travel to Portugal for a do or die match in the UEFA Champions League as they take on FC Porto in the third group stage match of the competition. Milan have played admirably in the opening two games but have fallen short losing 3-2 to Liverpool FC and 2-1 to Atletico Madrid. Porto have one point at the moment but Milan have none so a win will be vital to remain in the running for the next round or at least the Europa League spot.

Milan are missing a number of players for the encounter as starter Maignan, Hernandez, Diaz, Kessie and Rebic will all not be available for various reasons. Pioli could possibly deploy two strikers from the start but will likely play a familiar line up to start off and then make changes.

Expected Line Up (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu, Kalulu, Kjaer, Tomori, Calabria, Tonali, Bennacer, Saelemaekers, Krunic, Leao, Giroud
