The Rossoneri play their second consecutive match away from San Siro. After the draw with Udinese, AC Milan want to bounce back with a win today against Spal.
Between the posts as usual Gigio Donnarumma. On the left, Ricardo Rodriguez missed two consecutive games due to health issues but he is now fully recovered and is expected to start against Spal. The coach must make his own assessments but in any case Fabio Borini is ready to substitute him. Davide Calabria is suspended for this match after the red card against Udinese, Abate is expected to take his place on the right. Romagnoli and Bonucci complete the central duo.
In midfield, Franck Kessie and Giacomo Bonaventura, according to the latest news, seem sure for a first minute start. There is a big doubt about who is going to be the third midfielder, Lucas Biglia is favorite but considering the too many games the Rossoneri need to face this month he could rest to make room for Riccardo Montolivo or, eventually, Manuel Locatelli.
In attack, Jesus Suso and Hakan Calhanoglu are confirmed on wings. Nikola Kalinic was expected to lead the attacking unit but he has suffered and injury that may keep him out for two games. After the disappointing performance against Udinese it appears difficult for Andre Silva to start against so it’s once again Patrick Cutrone’s duty to produce for his team up front.
SPAL (3-5-2): Meret, Salamon, Simic, Felipe, Lazzari, Schiattarella, Viviani, Grassi, Mattiello, Kurtic, Antenucci
AC MILAN (4-3-3): G.Donnarumma; Abate, Bonucci, Romagnoli, Rodriguez (Borini); Kessie, Biglia (Montolivo), Bonaventura; Suso, Cutrone, Calhanoglu.
