After the huge boost provided by a Champions League victory over Tottenham Hotspur, Monza v AC Milan on Matchday 23 of the 2022/23 Serie A on Saturday evening at the Stadio Brianteo is another chance to further reignite the Rossoneri’s season.
Until their narrow win over Torino last time out domestically, Milan had been winless in seven matches and had all but kissed goodbye to their hopes of catching runaway leaders Napoli. Therefore, it was becoming critical that the Diavolo returned to winning ways and remained in touching distance of Champions League qualification.
Monza v AC Milan: Predicted line-ups
Defender Fikayo Tomori could be available again for the Rossoneri, but the performances of fellow youngster Malick Thiaw will make it difficult for the former Chelsea man to be returned straight into the starting XI. He may take Simon Kjaer’s place in the side.
Monza have a full squad for coach Raffaele Palladino to choose from, which means they are likely to have the in-form Matteo Pessina scheming in behind frontman Andrea Petagna.
Monza predicted XI v AC Milan (3-4-2-1): Di Gregorio; Marlon, Mari, Izzo; Birindelli, Rovella, Pessina, Ciurria; Mota Carvalho, Caprari; Petagna.
AC Milan predicted XI v Monza (3-4-2-1): Tatarusanu, Kalulu, Thiaw, Tomori; Messias, Krunic, Tonali, Theo Hernandez; Brahim, Leao; Origi.
