After the derby disappointment the rossoneri search for fortune in Europa League. AC Milan will host AEK Athens and 3 points would practically secure qualification.
Vincenzo Montella is looking for the right dress for his Milan. He’s taking certain measures conscious of the risks. So far he has failed to convince: both for the many defeats in the league and for the play displayed on the filed. But the coach insists he is not worried and is ready to bet on this team.
AC Milan must start from the good second half played in the derby on Sunday. An attitude that the coache and fans hope to see immediately, starting tomorrow in the match against AEK Athens valid for week 3 of Europa League. A match to be won at all costs. Vincenzo Montella continues with the 3-5-2 looking for the right mechanisms.
As usual between the posts Gigio Donnarumma. Captain Leonardo Bonucci will lead the defense alongside Mateo Musacchio and Rodriguez as centre back. Jack Bonaventura on the right with Davide Calabria on the other side. In midfield space for Manuel Locatelli with Suso and Hakan Calhanoglu as trequartistas. The attacking duo will be composed by Patrick Cutrone and Andre Silva.
Considerable rotation but not revolutionary. As for the opponents, it is still unclear whether Manuel Jimenez will use the defense of three or four. The latest rumors speak of a possible 4-3-3 with the use of two old acquaintances of Italian football: Lazaros Christodoulopoulos (former Verona) and Marko Livaja (former Inter).
Milan (3-5-2): Donnarumma; Musacchio, Bonucci, Rodriguez; Calabria, Suso, Locatelli, Calhanoglu, Bonaventura; Andre Silva, Cutrone
AEK Atene (4-3-3): Anestis; Bakakis, Vranjes, Cosic, Galo; Mantalos, Ajdarevic, Johansson; Christodoulopoulos, Livaja, Araujo.
