After overcoming Napoli and reaching the Champions League semi-finals for the first time since 2007, AC Milan vs Lecce on Matchday 31 of the 2022/23 Serie A campaign gives the Rossoneri the chance to refocus their efforts on ensuring qualification for the competition next season via their league position.

Milan currently occupy the fourth and final qualification place, but have crosstown rivals Inter just two points behind and looking to strike if they slip up at the San Siro on Sunday night after the euphoria of a wonderful performance in Naples on Tuesday.

AC Milan vs Lecce: Predicted line-ups

After their exertions against Napoli and with home advantage, coach Stefano Pioli could look to make some subtle changes to the Milan starting XI, but Davide Calabria will definitely miss out through suspension.

Despite a goal-scoring contribution against Sampdoria on Matchday 30, Assan Ceesay could miss out, with Lecce deciding that the youthful running of Rossoneri loanee Lorenzo Colombo in attack provides more chance of an upset at San Siro.

AC Milan predicted XI vs Lecce (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Kalulu, Thiaw, Tomori, Hernandez; Bennacer, Tonali; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leao; Origi.

Lecce predicted XI vs AC Milan (4-3-3): Falcone; Gendry, Baschirotto, Umtiti, Gallo; Blin, Hjulmand, Oudin; Strefezza, Colombo, Di Francesco.
