AC Milan will face Sampdoria in the lunchtime slot tomorrow (12:30 CET) and they will be eager to add another three points to their tally. Indeed, the derby win against Inter gave them a real confidence boost.
The Rossoneri are just one point behind Inter (who have a game in hand) in the standings and they made sure of facing the Nerazzurri in the Coppa Italia semi-finals thanks to their win against Lazio. The games before then, therefore, will be important.
According to Sky Italia (via Francesco Nasato), Stefano Pioli will make a few changes to the starting XI we saw mid-week. Theo Hernandez is suspended and will thus miss out, meaning Davide Calabria or Alessandro Florenzi will start at left-back.
Fikayo Tomori will be back from start after recovering from his knee surgery, coming off the bench against Lazio. Finally, Junior Messias looks set to keep his spot at right-wing despite some reports suggesting that Alexis Saelemaekers was ahead.
Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Tomori, Romagnoli, Florenzi; Tonali, Kessie; Messias, Brahim Diaz, Leao; Giroud.
