According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the manager should confirm the same formation seen at Ezio Scida Stadium last Sunday. Then 4-3-3 module will be composed by Gigio Donnarumma between the posts, the defensive quartet will be Conti – Musacchio – Bonucci and Rodriguez. A starting place for the former captain Montolivo in the midfield accompanied by Franck Kessie and Hakan Calhanoglu. The attacking trio with be lead by man of the moment Patrick Cutrone in the center and supported by Suso and Fabio Borini on the wings.

Still room for the young Cutrone, who again should have the best on Andre Silva in Montella’s choices. The Portuguese disappointed against KF Shkendija in Macedonia and has fallen in the pecking order behind the former Primavera centre forward, at least for the moment. So far AC Milan have won 5 games without conceding a single goal, the manager wants to keep the momentum going even against Cagliari.
