Coach Vincenzo Montella has no reason to change his starting XI after beating Juventus in the last round and the absence of European football can be an advantage in these moments of the season for Milan. The only doubt could be up front between Carlos Bacca, who did not impress against the table-toppers, and Gianluca Lapadula.

Leonardo Pavoletti got some minutes in the derby against Sampdoria. The striker may not be ready yet to play the full 90 minutes, which means Ivan Juric will have to decide whether to field him at start or use him from the bench.

Genoa lost the derby and need to bounce back quickly to prevent a bad streak from happening as a result of poor morale.

On the contrary, Milan have won 5 of their last 6 games, most notably taking down Juventus in the last round, and they are now dreaming even higher than expected at the beginning of the season.

Vincenzo Montella now has to handle this new stage of Milan’s project, as the enthusiasm can lead to both good and bad things. Milan need to keep working and still need to improve in some areas. Travelling to a difficult pitch like Marassi will be another test for them.
