They’re back at it again!
The AC Milan Women will play Sampdoria this Saturday. Kickoff time will be at 17:30 CET (8:30 am PST / 11:30 am EST).
Before this, Milan won their first match of the season with a resounding victory over their opponents, Hellas Verona. The game finished 4-0 in favor of the Rossonere. The match was also remarkable in other ways, as Valentina Giacinti scored her fiftieth goal, while Valentina Bergamaschi played her fiftieth match.
The last time Milan played Sampdoria was during a friendly tournament on July 25th. The game lasted for 45 minutes. The match also finished in a nil-nil tie.
Since the game was played during the preseason, one could argue that the Rossonere were conserving energy and weren’t trying to win the match. This time around, it’ll be different, as Milan will go full throttle for 90 minutes as they try to secure victory.
Sampdoria will also have a few familiar faces. Former Milan defender, Giorgia Spinelli, joined the Blucerchiate’s ranks over the summer. Current Milan keeper, Selena Babb, is on loan to the team.
An the Rossonere will see their old friends again on Saturday.
3-4-2-1: Giuliani; Fusetti; Agard, Codina; Bergamaschi, Jane, Adami, Andersen; Boquete, Thomas; Giacinti
How to watch
As we’ve reported before, the FIGC is working on securing the distribution rights for Serie A Femminile. As a result of this, Milan did not broadcast their game on their match last week.
One would suspect that it’s because the federation is working on securing distribution deals for the women’s league. So far, the two confirmed broadcasting deals are with the Nent Group, where the league will be streamed in ten different countries on Viaplay.
The league will also have their matches streamed on ESPN and Star Plus in Brazil.
The rest of the world has yet to find out where they can watch the league’s matches.
Until then, you’ll be able to watch the matches on TimVision and Milan TV if you live in Italy. For those who reside outside of the country, Milan will air a replay of the match on their Dailymotion page after the game ends.
