Busy Week of Football for AC Milan in Italy and Europe

After a tough 2-1 win over visitors Sampdoria on Saturday, Stefano Pioli will have an intense agenda this week. The Rossoneri Dinamo hosts Zagreb on Wednesday and Napoli on Sunday.

With that in mind, Pioli will likely alternate his team for the two games. After drawing in their first Champions League game last week, Milan cannot afford not to pick up three points at the San Siro on Wednesday night. Along the same lines, Sunday’s Serie A tilt with Napoli is a big game for both teams. Napoli will also play the Champions League match on Wednesday for security reasons.

Most of the rotation will happen in the attacking division, and Rafael Liao is very likely to start on Wednesday, Gazzetta dello sport reports. The Portuguese is suspended from Sunday’s match. Brahim Diaz and Alexis Saelmakers are expected to start the Champions League match, while Charles de Kitleari and Junior Messias will get the nod against Napoli.

With so much football going on so far, it’s no surprise to see that this rotation is a must for Scudetto holders.
