Cagliari vs Milan, probable lineups

The Rossoneri start the second part of the season away from San Siro today against Cagliari. Gattuso and his team hope to build upon the positive results with Crotone. 

Today at 18:00 CET, Gennaro Gattuso’s team travels to Cagliari. AC Milan aim to find the second consecutive victory after the narrow win against Crotone at San Siro. The Rossoneri in 2018 must try to redeem a first part of the season not up to expectations. Winning in Sardinia will not be easy, but it is mandatory to succeed. Mister Gattuso for the occasion seems inclined to confirm the same formation seen in the last league match.

Gianluigi Donnarumma between the posts, with Leonardo Bonucci and Alessio Romagnoli making up the central defensive duo. The two full backs will be Davide Calabria, in advantage over Ignazio Abate on the right and Ricardo Rodriguez on the left. The midfield department will be composed by the trio Franck Kessie, Lucas Biglia and Giacomo Bonaventura. Great opportunity for the former Lazio, who already against the Crotone offered signs of recovery.

In attack on the right there will be the untouchable Jesus Suso, who wrote ‘words of love’ to Milan a few days ago. On the left, a new chance for Hakan Calhanoglu, whose physical condition is improving. Regarding the centre forward role, Nikola Kalinic is favorite over Patrick Cutrone and Andre Silva
