AC Milan Team News
After a stuttering start to the 2019/20 campaign, Milan recovered well under Stefano Pioli and were the most in-form team post-lockdown, finishing sixth in the Serie A. The Rossoneri have been in good form heading into the new season, having won each of their four friendlies, before beating Shamrock Rovers 2-0 in the UEFA Europa League second round qualifiers. Milan have a vastly impressive record at home against Bologna. They have racked up 42 wins in 72 matches on their own backyard, while losing just 13 times.
Injury update, unavailability
Milan will be unable to call upon defenders Alessio Romagnoli, Mateo Musacchio and Andrea Conti against Shamrock as all three continue to nurse injuries sustained towards the end of last season.
