Team News

The Italian side are having to deal with a number of injuries, despite the season still being in its infancy, with five players currently in the treatment room. 

Right-back Andrea Conti is still recovering from a knee injury he sustained last season, whilst left-back Ivan Strinic is still sidelined with a heart condition.

Other players who will miss the game due to minor injuries are Christian Zapata, Riccardo Montolivo and centre-forward Patrick Cutrone who is suffering from a distortion of the ankle.

Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso will have to decide how strong a team he decides to play. While he will want to rest key players for more testing fixtures, playing too many fringe players in this game could leave them open to an upset against the unknown quantity that is Dudelange.

Meanwhile, Bryan Mélisse sits out through suspension here, while fellow full-back Clayton de Sousa is injured.
