AC Milan - Siena Preview
After an unexpected result and disappointing performance against Bologna , Milan will be searching for three points in San Siro against Siena.
Actually we can name this one as a must win game for the Rossoneri while Juventus are going to have an easy game at home and likely to win.
Milan had a great streak since Juventus defeat, but Allegri's side gave signs of losing that outstanding form at Genoa game. Against Genoa , Milan didn't impress , Kaladze's mistake changed everything and Milan managed to get all three points from Marasi.
Last weekend against Bologna , Milan played really bad and Bologna showed an unexpected performance , Bologna played very intelligent and deserved to win. Refree mistakes stole three points from Bologna.
Milan defense's and Amelia's mistakes were notable. Milan midfield couldn't control the game and defense left big gaps to Bologna forwards.
That's certain that Milan are struggling without Nesta and Zambrotta.
Milan are not in better situation than last week. Abate and Antonini will miss Siena game. Nesta , Zambrotta , Yepes are still injured.
Abbiati is back from injury but he's likely to sit on the bench. Amelia will start between the pipes who had conceeded two amateurish goals against Bologna.
Nocerino is back from injury too and he's expecting to start in first 11.
Milan are celebrating their 112th year since from yesterday. There will be great ambiance in San Siro tonight.
Allegri is in trouble to choose defenders against Siena.
Young De Sciglio expecting to start in first 11 , Taiwo will get LB position (who wants to leave Milan and didn't improve since his arrival) , Bonera will be partner of Silva on CB role.
These four players have never played together in a game.
There are some rumours that Milan might use Pato in exchange for Tevez transfer , Pato has to show better performance to stay in Milan while he's flirting with Barbara Berlusconi :)
Milan 4-3-1-2 (probable) Amelia , De Sciglio - Bonera - Silva - Taiwo - Van Bommel - Nocerino - Aquilani - Boateng - Ibrahimovic - Pato (Robinho)
Siena have boosted moral with passing Palermo in Sicily at Italian Cup game and reaching quarter finals for the first time in their history after a sensational eight goals trailer.
To play in Sicily is always a hard for the teams and Siena have showed excellent performance after three consecutive defeats in Serie A.
Siena will miss Vergassola and Belmonte. Defender Del Grosso will play with a mask after breaking his nose.
Siena have quality and in-form offensive players as Calaio and Italian U21 international Destro. Also D’Agostino and Brienza are the players who can give trouble to Milan with their creativeness.
Siena got nothing to lose and will try to use advantage of Milan's numerous injuries and defensive troubles.
The Rossoneri have no luxury to drop points anymore while Juventus keeping their unbeaten run and leading Serie A.
Milan will be eager to get all three points and give a good game in front of their fans at their 112th years' celebrations.
Scoring is not a problem for Allegri's team with such players Pato , Zlatan , Robinho , Boateng , Aquilani and even Seedorf but their defensive problems might cause troubles against under-dogs Siena.
Expectations over a high scoring game.
Bet : Take Over 3 goals @2.30
