Who knows whats going on in Milan? They've scored five goals in an away game on two separate occasions this term but have an abysmal record at the San Siro. They are coming off a 5-0 thrashing of Sampdoria, whom we beat 1-0 at home a few weeks ago. I hope we can capitalize on their poor home form, but no guarantees. If we could at least put in a positive performance or scrape a point here, that would be great, and it would set us up great for three winnable matches in the following three weeks.
Di Michele should finally return after questions about the end of his ban, and Lazetic and Zanetti are fit, though Recoba is still out as are Barone, Grella, Franceschini, and of course Rubin. Vailatti is suspended for two matches after his sending off against Udinese. We should look like this:
With Fontana, Bottone, Oguro, Nitride, Malonga, Bjelanovic, and Stellone on the bench.
Milan are missing Ronaldo, Jankulovski, and Oddo, but should otherwise be full strength, though they do have a CL match against Shakhtar the following Tuesday, so we can hope they are looking ahead to that. They should line up as:
With Kalac, Favalli, Cafu, Gourcuff, Brocchi, Emerson, and Inzaghi on teh bench.
Should be a good game.
