Official: AC Milan vs. Sampdoria starting XIs – three changes from Lazio clash

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan will take on Sampdoria in just over an hour (12:30 CET) and the starting XI has now been announced by the club. It’s the expected one, with three changes made from the 4-0 win against Lazio. 

The Rossoneri will have the chance to leapfrog both Inter and Napoli this afternoon, in need of a win to do so. As said, there are three changes to the starting XI as Alessandro Florenzi will replace the suspended Theo Hernandez, while Fikayo Tomori and Ismael Bennacer have been given the nod.

Pioli are obviously very pleased with his team but another important performance will be needed to overcome Sampdoria this afternoon. The Genoa side are on the up as Marco Giampaolo has been able to revitalise the team.

Official Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Tomori, Romagnoli, Florenzi; Tonali, Bennacer; Messias, Brahim Diaz, Leao; Giroud.

Bench: Mirante, Tătăruşanu; Ballo-Touré, Kalulu; Bakayoko, Castillejo, Kessie, Krunić, Saelemaekers; Maldini, Rebić.

Official Sampdoria XI (3-5-1-1): Falcone; Bereszynski, Colley, Magnani; Conti, Candreva, Rincon, Thorsby, Murru; Sensi; Caputo.

Bench: Audero, Ravaglia, Augello, Ekdal, Supriaha, Sabiri, Vieira, Ferrari, Quagliarella, Bonfanti, Trimboli.
