DIEGO LOPEZ, Sulley Muntari and Giampaolo Pazzini are expected to start for Milan, Diego Alves, Nicolás Otamendi, Dani Parejo and Paco Alcácer are expected to start for Valencia.
Milan play Valencia at a sold out Estadi de Mestalla today at 21:00 CET / Italian time and it will be another pre-season match ahead of the 2014/2015 edition of Serie A. Milan and Valencia coaches, Filippo Inzaghi and Nuno Espírito Santo, have almost decided on the starting XI’s.
The Rossoneri are without Gabriel, Didac Vila (both are technical decisions as they could leave in the next days – one on loan, one permanently), Mattia De Sciglio (recovering from the collision with Gabriel in the Liverpool match, Nigel De Jong, Riccardo Saponara (both suffering from muscle fatigue), Mario Balotelli and M’Baye Niang (both suffering from some flu symptoms).
Another player who is out of the squad for this match is Adil Rami. The defender played for Valencia from 2011 until his January move to Milan in 2013. Rami left the Spanish side on very bad terms and he agreed with Milan that he won’t join the team for this trip to avoid possible confrontations with the fans and even the players of Valencia, who still remember the things that he said about the club. Rami also attacked the Chairman of Valencia on social media, when Milan negotiated with them over a permanent deal earlier this summer. With Rami out, Cristian Zapata & new signing Alex are expected to play.
The probable formations from the newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, are on your right side.
