In this preview, AC Milan takes on Croation champions Rijeka in the Europa League group stages with Milan unbeaten in all games in the Europa League Milan are looking to extend that statistic with a class performance against Rijeka.
Here is how Milan can possibly lineup for the match. Milan is resting up their starters so this lineup is full of Primavera’s and bench players. The formation Montella will most likely use is the 3-5-2. In goal Marco Storari is in between the posts, the three in the back would be Paletta, Gustavo Gomez, and Christian Zapata. The five in the middle might consist of Antonelli and Calabria as the two wide midfielders and Locatelli, Zanellato and Jose Mauri in the midfield. Lastly, our strikers are Patrick Cutrone and Fabio Borini.
Now with this lineup, I expect not much from Milan but I still expect a strong performance from the Rossoneri. You can never underestimate a weak team because you never know how they will play you have to go onto the pitch fighting and strive for a win a win is not given to you, it is earned by a world-class performance and from the looks of it this lineup is the future of AC Milan so we actually get to watch our best youth talents come to the biggest stage in Europe. But being optimistic, I think Milan will catch fire and win the game 3-1 or 2-0.
