AC Milan Women face Sassuolo at Vismara in a crunch tie for Champions League qualification. The Rossonere have never qualified to Europe’s premier competition hence a lot is on the line in the tie. The Rossonere will also be making history as the first time a Women’s team will debut the new home shirt for the upcoming season.

The match is a six pointer as Sassuolo sit in 3rd while the Rossonere are 2nd. Milan are currently three points clear with two games to go but need to bounce back following their shock 3-1 defeat to Fiorentina last time out.

The Rossonere will be missing their first choice goalkeeper Maria Korenciova after she was sent off in the previous game and she will be dearly missed as she is a leader on the pitch and top notch between the sticks.

Maurizio Ganz will certainly go with his 3-5-2 formation for this game and will be relying on Hasegawa and Boquete to bring the creativity to set up Giacinti and Dowie.

Expected Line Up (3-5-2): Piazza, Vitale, Agard, Fusetti, Bergamaschi, Jane, Boquete, Hasegawa, Tucceri Cimini, Dowie, Giacinti.
