AC Milan try to achieve the impossible today at the Emirates Stadium. After the 2-0 defeat of the first leg the Rossoneri need a big victory to progress further in Europa League.
The 0-2 result of the first leg is a difficult result to overturn but the Rossoneri are going to try. To achieve success Gennaro Gattuso will rely o lot on the team’s attacking players and immediately is betting on the two strikers formation, the solution adopted by the coach in the last game with Genoa to try to increase the offensive weight.
Against Genoa, Andre Silva (author of the last second goal) played alongside Patrick Cutrone: according to Corriere dello Sport both will start today at the Emirates Stadium. The team needs their goals to overturn the result of the first leg. Rino is expected to use the 4-4-2 lineup. Lucas Biglia and Franck Kessie will play in the middle of the field with Suso on the right and Hakan Calhanoglu on the left, favorite over Giacomo Bonaventura.
In defense, Gattuso is forced to make one change in the usual back four: Davide Calabria has suffered a muscular injury and will be replaced by Cristian Zapata, Fabio Borini was a also possibility but the coach is more confident of the Colombian. Leonardo Bonucci, Alessio Romagnoli and Ricardo Rodriguez complete the back line, with Gianluigi Donnarumma on goal.
