Two wins in a row! By a 16 year old goalkeeper!
The season’s first winning streak has been achieved with Donnarumma in goal. The 16 year old has impressed but it doesn’t diminish the risk that is being taken. Giving him starts may prove to be wrong in the long term but as Berlusconi said this week he can be Milan’s goalie for 20 years …. here’s hoping.
Elsewhere on the pitch, the win against Chievo was a decent enough display, especially the second half. Now Milan meet Lazio away. Lazio have won all (5) their home Serie A matches so far this season. To make it 3 wins in a row Milan will have to be consistent and press the hosts more consistently.
Mihajlovic will stick to the 4-3-3 and will use 10 of the same starters as the Chievo match. The 11th is a forced absence as Abate is nursing a muscle issue he picked up early in the Chievo match. De Sciglio should get the start in his place.
Niang will be on the bench for the first time this season.
