AC Milan to Win to Nil

AC Milan will be licking their wounds following their Champions League semi-final exit at the hands of rivals Inter in midweek, however, if they want to make the cut for next season’s tournament, they need to get their top four charge in Serie A back on track, starting with Saturday’s clash with Sampdoria.

AC Milan -1.0 Goal Handicap

Milan will feel like they owe their supporters a performance following a run of three straight defeats and the Rossoneri could put their foot down on the acceleration to take out their frustrations again Sampdoria on Saturday.

AC Milan

Ismaël Bennacer faces an extended spell in the sidelines with a knee problem, though Milan's treatment room is virtually empty beyond that. Rafael Leao returned from injury in midweek in Milan's 1-0 loss to Inter in the Champions League semi-finals and the Portuguese winger could start again on Saturday.

Predicted Lineup for AC Milan: Maignan – Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez – Krunic, Tonali – Diaz, Saelemaekers, Rebic, Origi

Sampdoria

Keeper Emil Aduero, defender Andrea Conti and attacker Ignacio Pussetto are all considered doubts and might not feature for Sampdoria while attacker Medhi Leris is a confirmed absentee with a muscle issue. La Samp drew 1-1 at home to Empoli last time out, though they are still rooted to the foot of the table.

Predicted Lineup for Sampdoria: Ravaglia – Gunter, Nuytinck, Amione – Zanoli, Winks, Rincon, Augello – Duricic, Gabbiadini, Quagliarella

Player to Watch – Divock Origi

Divock Origi started in a rotated Milan team at Spezia last weekend and the Belgian striker could be given another shot from the first whistle against Sampdoria on Sunday. Origi hasn’t scored a goal for Milan since January and the 28-year-old will be itching to make an impact this weekend.
