Sampdoria-Milan, probable lineups

AC Milan search for the 10th win this season against Sampdoria. Manager Vincenzo Montella returns to play his former team at Marassi.

Difficult away match for the rossoneri tomorrow at 12:30 CET, who will be hosted by Sampdoria at the Marassi stadium. Just three days after midweek round, Serie A returns to play again. Manager Vincenzo Montella is studying the 11th rossoneri to deploy tomorrow against Samp. According to the latest Milan News, referring to manager Montella’s today press conference and training sessions at Milanello, these are the eleven red and black expected to start tomorrow:

As always Gianluigi Donnarumma between the posts, untouchable in the many official games played since the beginning of the season. In front of him the usual defense at three, with Leonardo Bonucci captain in the center. On the sides – according to Sky Sport 24 – should play Cristian Zapata and Alessio Romagnoli. On the bench then Mateo Musacchio, again after Milan-Spal.

On the flanks with absolute certainty will be Ignazio Abate and Ricardo Rodriguez, forced starters due to the absence of alternatives with many injured players out. Lucas Biglia is confirmed as playmaker, while Franck Kessie and Giacomo Bonaventura accompany him in the middle. The second returns to play from the first minute after a couple of matches playing as a substitute after the Europa League injury.

In attack there will be the return of Suso from the first minute, The Spaniard will act just behind the only striker Nikola Kalinic. A return in attack for the Hispanic-Croatian pair already seen at work against Udinese. Montella looks for long term guarantees, and he thinks the two can be ideal for hurting the tactically well-prepared Serie A defenses. A win tomorrow would mark the 10th victory for the rossoneri so far.
