AC Milan Women will face AS Roma Women at the Mapei Stadium in Reggio Emilia tonight for the Coppa Italia Femminile title. Neither side has ever lifted the trophy hence a lot is on the line for both clubs. The Rossonere led by captain Valentina Giacinti will be looking to cap of their exceptional season in which they secured Champions League football for the first time with their first piece of silverware ever. Maurizio Ganz has spoken about an attacking approach to the game as Natasha Dowie has been tipped to start in their usual 3-5-2 formation. Both sides have strong defences thus the side that blinks and makes mistake will likely struggle playing catch up. Milan will rely heavily on the experience of Vero Boquete and Yui Hasegawa who have won major trophies to steer the squad on the pitch. This is a huge opportunity for the Rossonere and we will be there in full support tonight!

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