AC Milan start 2018 with a home game against one of the weakest opponents of Serie A. Today the Rossoneri host Crotone confident of a positive result.
The first match of 2018 for the Rossoneri is played today. AC Milan host Crotone at San Siro, at 15:00 CET. Among the posts, as usual, there will be Gianluigi Donnarumma. In front of him 4 defenders: Davide Calabria and Ricardo Rodriguez on the sides, with Leonardo Bonucci and Alessio Romagnoli in the center.
Coach Gennaro Gattuso continues with the 4-3-3 formation. In midfield Rino will count on Franck Kessie and Lucas Biglia as regista, while Riccardo Montolivo was expected to start from the first minute coach Gattuso will give another chance to the Argentine. Giacomo Bonaventura will complete the department.
In the attacking trio the Spaniard Suso will start on the right wing. Against Crotone young striker Patrick Cutrone will once again lead the attack again. Nikola Kalinic returned to training regularly this week, but he is not yet fit to play 90 minutes. Few chances also for Andre Silva, whose latest performances have not convinced the coach at all. On the left wing Hakan Calhanoglu is expected to start and could invert his position with the game in progress with Jack Bonaventura.
AC MILAN (4-3-3): G. Donnarumma; Calabria, Bonucci, Romagnoli, Rodriguez; Kessie, Biglia, Bonaventura; Suso, Cutrone, Calhanoglu.
CROTONE (4-3-3): Cordaz; Sampirisi, Ajeti, Ceccherini, Martella; Rohden, Barberis, Mandragora; Trotta, Budimir, Stoian.
