Sassuolo vs AC Milan, probable lineups

Today at 20:45 CET, Sassuolo host AC Milan in a very delicate match decisive for the future of coach Vincenzo Montella and not only.

Vincenzo Montella can not afford another false step. Now it is clear that the Rossoneri coach is hanging on thread, the draw in Athens against AEK did not convinced neither for the game displayed neither for the result, tomorrow against Sassuolo everyone needs to prove the value of their skin.

The away game versus Sassuolo may be considered a last call. As reported today by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Montella will change the composure of Milan that will be presented against a Sassuolo fighting to avid relegation. 3-4-2-1 is going to be the formation, a game system already seen recently against Chievo and Juventus while the experiment with two strikers in Europa League did not convince much for the level of performance and opportunities created.

Gigio on goal with Leo Bonucci and Romagnoli in front of him. In defense, Musacchio’s awful performance in Athens will force Montella to trust on Cristian Zapata from the first minute. Without Biglia and Bonaventura still injured, former captain Montolivo will start in the middle alongside Franck Kessie with Fabio Borini and Davide Calabria. Ricardo Rodriguez will have to start from the bench if his services are needed.

In the attack returns the trio seen in the last games in Serie A: Suso and Hakan Calhanoglu on the wings to act behind Nikola Kalinic, once again awarded with a starter jersey in the hope of forgetting the wasted opportunities in Milan-Juve and returning to score like he used to always do. Andre Silva returns on the bench.

SASSUOLO (4-3-3):  Consigli; Gazzola, Cannavaro, Acerbi, Peluso; Sensi, Magnanelli, Missiroli; Politano, Falcinelli, Ragusa.

AC MILAN (3-4-2-1): Donnarumma; Zapata, Bonucci, Romagnoli; Calabria, Montolivo, Kessie, Borini; Suso, Çalhanoglu; Kalinic.
