Divock Origi was set to start AC Milan’s clash against Sampdoria tonight but unfortunately, he’s suffering from fatigue and has not travelled with the squad for Genoa. Another setback for the striker, in other words.
The Belgian struggled with a muscle injury throughout the summer and at the start of the season, only just returning to good condition. He has been dealt another blow, experiencing muscle fatigue in his left thigh last night.
As a result, per various outlets, Origi has not travelled with the squad for tonight’s game and it remains to be seen who will start instead. Olivier Giroud is called up and he’s the most likely candidate to play up front.
Giroud is indeed in pole position to start and De Ketalaere could be used as a mid-game solution for the centre-forward role. Lazetic was left out as a precaution as he has just recovered from muscle fatigue, ironically.
