The duo Pierre Kalulu and Rade Krunic have returned to training with their teammates and are expected to be present in the encounter with Juventus early this Monday morning. Midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek still has to carry out a separate lesson plan because he has not fully recovered.
The timely return of Kalulu and Krunic is good news for AC Milan, in the context that they will be without both Mike Maignan and Theo Hernandez due to suspension. Number two goalkeeper Marco Sportiello is also injured. Therefore, this year’s 40-year-old guard, Antonio Mirante, is expected to start the match against the “Old Lady”.
AC Milan is leading the Serie A rankings with 21 points after the first 8 matches (7 wins, 1 loss). Their opponent in round 9, Juventus, also had personnel problems when Paul Pogba and Nicolo Fagioli were both unable to play for different reasons.
3 points will be the goal that both clubs are aiming for. If they win, both AC Milan and Juventus will have more motivation in the race for the Serie A championship this season.
