However, Stefano Pioli’s side have dropped points in two of their last three league games and will have to be at the very best to overcome the capital side.
Fortunately for Pioli, he should be able to call upon a largely unchanged side from the one that beat Sassuolo 2-1 at the weekend.
In defence, Pioli will almost certainly stick with Gianluigi Donnarumma between the posts, as well as a back four of Theo Hernandez, Alessio Romagnoli, Pierre Kyatengwa and then Davide Calabria at right-back.
The Milan head coach will have to make some changes in midfield, following Franck Kessie’s red card. Which will probably mean a start for Rade Krunic alongside Sandro Tonali.
In front, Pioli is expected to stick with Spaniard Brahim Díaz through the middle of the pitch, with Hakan Calhanoglu on the left and then Alexis Saelemaekers on the right.
Up front, in place of the injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Rafael Leao will almost certainly be tasked with leading the line again.
