AC Milan clinched all three points mid-week against Atletico Madrid and thus grabbed a final lifeline in the Champions League. Now, however, they will have to shift focus to Serie A and their game against Sassuolo.
The game is scheduled for 15:00 CET on Saturday and following the defeat against Fiorentina, Stefano Pioli’s men will be eager to bounce back. According to Gazzetta Dello Sport (see photo below), there are three battles for the starting spots.
Mike Maignan and Fikayo Tomori have both returned to training with Milan, taking part in the session earlier today. It should be noted that the newspaper’s prediction came out this morning, so the situation may well have changed.
Either way, it has both Maignan and Tomori on the both, though in a 60-40% battle with Ciprian Tatarusanu and Alessio Romagnoli. In other words, it’s indeed possible that the duo could play from the first minute. The final battle is between Ismael Bennacer and Sandro Tonali, with the former ahead.

i perceive that attack of sassuolo is dynamic, fast and filled witḥ trickery so tomori better be fit to play to stop berardi or block raspadori, kjaer on the other hand is many times very well positioned and this means scamacca is his job to cover, kessie and bennacer/tonali have to be dominant to wim the ball in midfield so that they can break sassuolo’s attack and starve them for passes. may the diavolo win!
