CHRISTIAN ABBIATI, Andrea Poli and Stephan El Shaarawy are expected to start for Milan, Gianluigi Buffon, Claudio Marchisio and Carlos Tevez are expected to start for Juventus.

Milan play Juventus at Stadio San Siro today at 20:45 CET / Italian time and it will be the 3rd matchday of the 2014/15 Serie A season. Milan and Juventus coaches, Filippo Inzaghi and Max Allegri, have almost decided on their XI’s.

The Rossoneri have to do without Diego Lopez, Alex da Costa, Riccardo Montolivo, Riccardo Saponara, Hachim Mastour as well as without the banned Daniele Bonera and possibly Michael Essien, who has a left foot problem and will be re-evaluated this morning. The Bianconeri are without Andrea Barzagli, Luca Marrone, Marco Motta and Andrea Pirlo. Inzaghi is set to continue with the 4-3-3 formation, using Jeremy Menez in the false 9 role. The midfield will remain the same with Andrea Poli, Nigel De Jong and Sulley Muntari. Allegri is expected to use the 3-5-2 with Carlos Tevez-Fernando Llorente up front. Arturo Vidal might still to start from the bench.

Here are the probable formations for tonight according to today’s edition of the Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport:

I really want to see allegri lost at san siro…he destroyed milan …

Hope our mid field can hold their own.. It’s certainly going to be a game of MID-FIELD VS WINGS. De-Jong and Muntari have certainly got loads of work to do in that MID, I honestly never expect anything from Poli (Mr Invisible). Hope we can make Juventus suffer on the WINGS. In any case, I really hope we win this. I don’t want us taking a step down from the top of the table till the end. This is the REAL test. Go! Go!! Go!!! Milan.

Whatever happens tonight, we are AC Milan, we are milanfans and we are a family! I therefore want you all to support our team before, during but also after tonights game, even if we lose it.

I realy like this blog and the community here, even though there are differences and disagreements sometimes.

Foza Milan!

Be nice to knock juva off there perch and take a big scalp and force seria a to take notice of us and every other team to fear us and the San Siro again, I hope the stadium rocks tonight and blow the fucking roof off the place when El Niño hangs one or two up in the top corner
FORZA MILAN

Nyaho

Inzaghi: “De Jong is doing really well. He has charisma and he is a leader.” Give him the captain armband already.. ”Who the cap fits, let him wear it…”

Very well said Rico, we all share the same feelings for the blog as well as for the club.We all have to continue our support for this great club even at a time of crisis like this we can hope for the best and stay united in all matters.After listening to Berulsconi’s interview yestrday I think that he is ready to invest in this club again like the previous times we can only hope pray and support Milan till it becomes the best in the world again which it will……Forza Milan

Bring it

Milan should play 4-4-2 or 4-2-3-1, thus milan don’t get outplayed in the midfield, since juve will play 3 5 2,forza milan
