AC Milan are seeking to push for a top four finish, and come into this game having cruised to a very comfortable 3-0 win over last season’s debutants Crotone on matchday one.
Vincenzo Montella’s men have another pretty comfortable fixture coming up, as they host Cagliari. Their upcoming opponents, Cagliari were crushed by Juventus, which is no real surprise as the Rossoblu had one of the worst defenses in the league. In fact, the Sardinians, despite their decent attack had the worst defensive record of any team who wasn’t in the bottom three.
Milan now have added Nikola Kalinic from Fiorentina, which gives them further attacking options, but it will be interesting to see what role as there is a possibility that Kalinic plays on Sunday. Given how the Diavolo have started off with a roaring start, it will be another case of damage control for Cagliari, who have not solved their defensive woes, and for all intents and purposes, this looks likely to be a pretty straightforward, comfortable win for the hosts ahead of the upcoming international break.

Probable line ups:

Milan: (4-3-3)
Donnarumma; Conti, Musacchio, Bonucci, Rodriguez; Kessie, Montolivo, Calhanoglu; Suso, Cutrone, Borini

Cagliari: (4-3-1-2)
Cragno; Capuano, Pisacane, Andreolli, Padoin; Barella, Cigarini, Ionita; Joao Pedro; Farias, Sau
