Lucas Paquetá has almost fully recovered and will reportedly be on the squad list for Saturday’s game, while Alessio Romagnoli will also be fit to play.

Paquetá sprained his ankle in the match against Udinese just two weeks ago and his recovery seems to be going well.

Today the Brazilian carried out the first part of the training session with the rest of the team and then did some personalized work. In the next days, the ex-Flamengo midfielder should resume full training and according to Sky Italia, if everything goes well, then he’ll be called-up for the game against Parma on Saturday (12:30 CET kickoff).

Gianluigi Donnarumma and Davide Calabria meanwhile are fully recovered and will be able to face Parma. Alessio Romagnoli didn’t train with the squad today, but as reported by Sky and Milannews.it, there is no doubt regarding his availability at Stadio Ennio Tardini – the captain will be able to play.

The Rossoneri are now entering the final 6 Serie A games of the season and coach Gattuso will need everyone healthy and at the top of their game in order to keep the fourth place and reach the UCL.

Little risky to start him but if it’s not going our way or need someone to open them up then spring him from the bench

it would be sad if it backfires. the boys are humans and no robots.paqueta already played a lot before joining milan. need to trust in the whole squad. a weekness of some coaches to keep on forcing some players untill their limit-becouse they are afraid to be the spacegoats -when a player they ignored will not have a good match. why buy halilovic when never use.its a crime in my eyes.playing with humans.] but anyway just my opinion. never would buy any player=to leave him out like he does not exist buy a player after having followed him long enough… Read more »

Good news for us but the most important good news for me is that Juventus is OUT. Hahahaha hahahaha the celebrations is high here
I said something 4 years ago that juve will never win the champions league no matter how much they spend UNTIL MILAN wins for the 8th time
Milan is the Pride of Italy in the world
Forza Milan

Juventus continues to prove to be perpetual local champions, am indeed glad they have been kicked out of the champions league because they have been courtesy of Seria A referees most times.. Let us focus on our remaining finals and hope that we are able to make it to champions league

I hope we don’t rush them back. With all due respect to Parma, they shouldn’t be taken lightly, but the games vs Lazio in the coppa and then Torino will be massive and we need all our players for those games, and hopefully they’ll be hundred percent ready by then, and not risked at 70 % or so vs Parma!
We looked good vs Lazio, we can keep our current shape.

If you don’t play the ball and always depend on luck, one day the luck will ride out and it will cost you a more important match….juventus is a typical example of that and this is why I keep lamenting about our style, european football have changed, there are no more household names, to win a match in champions league , you have to be good enough…Madrid and juve are gone, so imagine if it was Milan playing this ajax with this their toothless style of play….we have to start thinking wide and broad and I wish us luck on… Read more »

Not playing the ball isnt lucky. Mourinho has won several trophies wiithout playing the ball. Same with Di Mateo.

Well in Napoleon’s words; “Give me a lucky General not a good one!!!”

Inter, Roma, Atalanta will still face Juve that will not playing in UCL again. Pretty good chance for Milan to secure UCL spot

Squad that have beaten Lazio should be good enough to beat Parma, with all appropriate respect given to Parma. And I mean one that had Laxalt included.
Paq, Donna and Roma could rest up and I guess we could see Caldara finally in first 11. Very probable that we are gonna see 3-4-2-1, who knows, maybe 23rd is the charm for us.

Let’s go for 3421. Paqueta come from the bench. Or 3412 with Cutrone. I really like with Laxat and Borini on the wing

Juve, how nice does Karma taste? Someone on here I thought said they’ll exit the CL based on the ref not giving them a penalty, after our game with them. Big club at home small club outside hahaha

How about some Ajax. Young team outplaying a side full of experience and entitled mega stars. It doesn’t take mega stars to win. A good coach and quality young players is all you need.

I can honestly say that from what I saw in last rounds of CL, Ajax play the most beautiful and fluent football I’vee seen in a while. On the topic: Glad to see Paqueta back but would not rush him. What I want to see and that applies to Rino, is to give Paqueta more freedom to attack. We have Hakan, Paqueta, Biglia and also Jack, who should act as an attacking and creative spark but instead focus too much on defending. Use Paqueta in a more attacking way and have Baka and Kessie hold the mid while the Brazilian… Read more »

Totally agree. Ajax are a joy to watch. As for Paquetá, there’s no reason to rush him back. He played almost a full season with Flamengo. So he needs to be rested.

Ted, I agree with your general sentiment about Paquetta. But regarding Gatusso’s defensive mindset – I would like to recall how Conte brought Juve back to the front of world football. It was first and foremost through defense; through clean sheets. This is the way to get results in seria a. Once we mastered the defensive phase of the game, we can start focusing on attack. But almost any seria a champions, in particular Milan, first build on defense.

I think, our best 3 in Milan’s midfields are : Bakayoko (center), Paqueta (left) and Kessie ,(right).

Suso/Borini as a right AM, Calhanoglu/Castilejo as a left AM.

4-3-3 with a Christmas tree formation.

Great to hear we’ll need all our tools for this final push.an maybe start castijello this time instead of suso samu is faster much more hungry tracks back an defend plus build the attack I wounder some time’s if the coach just ignores it #juveout
