Marco Piccinini has been named the referee for Thursday’s game, he has never reffed the Rossoneri before.

After drawing Lecce 2-2 and losing 2-1 to Roma, Stefano Pioli and his players will try to finally get a win when they take on SPAL at Stadio San Siro on Thursday.

Looks a good ref. I like how he’s pointing to whiney Ronaldo that he can stay there on the ground but no penalty! Hope we starts off with him with a win
