Serie A 2019, Week 1. 25/08. Udinese - Milan 18:00 CET, at Friuli
As it is, it seems we better get our candles back out and light them for Piatek and Donnarumma to perform miracles, as usual.
The season seems to be coming way too early for Milan. We have a manager with a drastically new gameplan but an underwhelming pre-season with few high level rivals and not a lot of good results. Despite a squad in desperate need for key improvements and players capable of playing under the new coach, the final week of pre-season finds us with an unfinished transfer market and with none of the new signings seemingly ready to start the first game.
I have no clue how we're going to line up, but I sincerely hope it does not involve Borini as central midfielder.
It may be a busy week in the meantime, so possibly there'll be new players and/or departures in both teams. De Paul remains a Udinese player for now.
