AC Milan take on Cagliari at the San Siro tonight in a monumental fixture for the qualification to the UEFA Champions League. The Rossoneri have been missing from Europe’s elite competition for seven years and are very close to achieving their goal but need a victory. A win would practically guarantee a top four spot due to the favourable H2H against Juventus.

Stefano Pioli is expected to start the exact same line up from the Torino win with only Alexis Saelemaekers replacing Samu Castillejo. Ante Rebic will lead the line once again following his hat trick and be supported by Brahim Diaz as both will be expected to bring the goods against a resilient Cagliari side.

Ismael Bennacer will be given the opportunity to redeem himself after a coupe of struggled displays. Alessio Romagnoli remains on the bench.

Milan will also be debuting their new kit for the 2020/21 season.

Expected Line Up (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma, Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez, Bennacer, Kessie, Saelemaekers, Diaz, Calhanoglu, Rebic.
