Andre Silva’s moment to shine against the best defense in Italy

It’s Andre Silva’s moment. The talented Portuguese striker will lead AC Milan’s attack against the best defense in Serie A so far.

Even today, Nikola Kalinic did not train in Milanello with the rest of the rossoneri group, but has continued his personal work to recover from a muscular injury suffered in the match against Roma before the international break. At this point, his chances to be on the field, Sunday against Inter, seem to be reduced to a minimum, even though AC Milan’s medical staff still hopes to recover him, at least for the bench (in this sense, tomorrow’s training sessions will be crucial to determine his condition).

GOLDEN MOMENT – In the last few hours, Andre Silva’s chances for a first minute start have increased a lot, even many Milanese fans want to see him on the field from the first minute. Returning from two goals the national team against Andorra and Switzerland, which secured Portugal direct qualification for the upcoming 2018 World Cup, the rossoneri’s number 9 returned in Milanello with great enthusiasm and great desire to be decisive even in Serie A, where he has yet to score in this season’s start.

DIFFICULTY TEST – For Andre Silva, who should be supported by Suso, it will not be easy to find the first net because Sunday he will be against the best defense of the league, that has conceded only three goals in seven games (all away) so far. The crazy goal’s average of the Portuguese in this season’s start (a net every 104 minutes) makes Milan fans hopeful that the rossoneri will finally return to rejoice at Inter’s home after seven years.
