We have said that both teams play offensive football this season and consequently it is realistic to expect to see nice number of goals in this postponed match that will be played at the San Siro. On top of it, Milan won Sampdoria 3-2 at home last weekend after a very interesting match, and it also scored at least two goals in previous three home matches in the Serie A.

Away match in Milan comes for the guests from Genoa after two draws in a row in the Serie A. They firstly drew away with leading Juventus 1-1 and they with Udinese 2-2 at home. It means that new manager Juric still neither won nor lost with Genao, who took over the team right before duel with Juventus, since Ballardini was fired after home defeat by Parma.
It was very unexpected decision of the Genoa management given that the team had previously won four and lost one match, which propelled them to the upper half of table. Besides, Polish forward Piatek has simply “exploded” under Ballardini command and is currently the first scorer in the Serie A with nine goals. Regarding problems with absences we need to say that stopper Romero cannot play due to accumulated yellow cards, while goalkeeper Marchetti, stopper Spolli and forward Favilli are injured.
Probable lineups Geno 1893: Radu – Biraschi, Gunter, Criscito – Pereira, Romulo, Sandro, Lazovic – Bessa – Kouame, Piatek
