After Milan‘s heavy defeat in the Derby della Madonnina, it is crucial that during the next few games Stefano Pioli and his side prove they are genuine Scudetto contenders. Facing a newly promoted side has to result in three points if Milan are to rectify the disappointment of the derby.
Cagliari have faced a problematic welcome back to Serie A. The Rossoblu are yet to pick up their first win and, after only scoring one goal so far, things seem bleak for Claudio Ranieri‘s team.
Cagliari vs AC Milan: Predicted line-ups
After going off injured against Newcastle in the Champions League, Mike Maignan is set to miss the fixture against Cagliari. It is believed that the Frenchman will be ready to start against Lazio.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s injury isn’t expected to keep him out for the same length of time. A return to the bench, if not the starting eleven, may be feasible for the Englishman. The shape is hard to predict as Stefano Pioli has switched to a 3-4-3 against Verona. Pierre Kalulu could remain out.
Doubts remain in place for whether Elio Capradossi, Gaston Pereiro and Jacopo Desogus will feature for Cagliari.
Cagliari predicted XI vs AC Milan (3-5-2): Radunovic; Wieteska, Dossena, Chatzidiakos; Zappa, Makoumbou, Prati, Deiola, Augello; Pavoletti, Shomurodov
AC Milan predicted XI vs Cagliari (3-4-3): Sportiello; Thiaw, Tomori, Kjaer; Musah, Krunic, Reijnders, Florenzi; Pulisic, Giroud, Leao
