After taking just one point from their last three Serie A matches, AC Milan travel to the Stadio Via del Mare on Matchday 12 of the 2023/24 campaign to face Lecce, desperately seeking a victory to reignite their Scudetto hopes.
The Rossoneri threw away a two-goal lead against Napoli and also suffered 1-0 defeats at home to Juventus and Udinese either side of their trip to Naples, and trail leaders and bitter Milanese rivals Inter by six points.
Lecce vs AC Milan: Predicted line-ups
While the injury time collapse to AS Roma meant Lecce missed the opportunity to leave the Stadio Olimpico in Rome with all three points, Salentini coach Roberto D’Aversa will have been proud of his team and is expected to name the same starting XI against Milan.
That the Rossoneri lost the two fixtures when Theo Hernandez was missing, first through suspension and then illness, highlights the importance of the left-back. The French international should be available for selection again, but countryman Pierre Kalulu will be out for several months after undergoing surgery on a thigh injury.
Lecce predicted XI vs AC Milan (4-3-3): Falcone; Gendrey, Pongracic, Bashirotto, Dorgu; Kaba, Ramadani, Rafia; Almqvist; Krstovic,Banda.
