Week 13: Milan – Spezia

Milan vs Spezia November 5 2022 20:45CET

Milan brushed aside the Serie A loss at Torino and won 4-0 against Salzburg. Qualifiying for the knockout round of the Champions League again is a boost to the team’s stated ambitions, reputation and finances. It will also help the young team grow. What can happen on the pitch come Febraury and MArch is something esle to be discussed later.

The so called easy Serie A stretch continues with Spezia visiting. It looks like the starting 11 will feature Origi again, as it did last weekend. Giroud was one of the star of the 4-0 win versus Salzburg and he will get some more rest heading into a busy weekend and then the World Cup. Messias, Diaz and Leao are the candidates for the three behind the Belgian forward. Diaz was not used in the Champions League match and should be rested. There is some talk of Vranckx getting big minutes perhaps resting Tonali. Bennacer was very good midweek and his form and presence has made a difference in the middle of the pitch.

In the back Kalulu, Gabbia, Tomori and Theo are the usual candidates for starting in front of Tatarusanu.

Spezia, sitting in 16th spot, are led by M’Bala Nzola who has scored five Serie A goals so far. His team’s last Serie A win was in September versus Sampdoria.
