AC Milan will most likely line up with a 3-5-2 formation as Montella looks to switch things up in the Milan team sheet. In goal Gigio Donnarumma is between the posts, the center back trio would consist of Bonucci, Romagnoli, and either Zapata or Mussachio. The five players in the mid field will be Bonaventura, Kessie, Biglia, and on the outside mid field would be Calhanoglu and Suso. Finally, the striker partnership would be Andre Silva and Nikola Kalinic.
In order for Milan to be successful in this match, they can not go into the game already thinking that they won the match just because Austria Wien is a small team.
