AC Milan Team News
Injury woes at the camp this weekend include Andrea Conti, Alessio Romagnoli, and Mateo Mussachio. However, Piolo will receive boosts this weekend with the returning Theo Hernandez and Ismael Bennacer. Another doubt for the starting lineup is Alexis Saelemaekers in place of young sensation Samu Castillejo. Keeping the attacking line for the side is veteran forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Nathan Nandez is back in the starting XI after serving a suspension. Injury woes at the camp include Radja Nainggolan, Christian Oliva, Luca Pellegrini, and Leonardo Pavoletti. Zenga is likely to maintain the same starting XI that registered a win against the Old Lady.

Cagliari will head into the match with a boosting win against Juve, but it will be hard to push the same against in-form Milan.
