AC Milan has had a miserable start to the season with them being at the 16th spot in the league. In the six league games so far, Milan has faced defeat on four occasions while winning just two games in the process.
There’s plenty of speculations around the corner that Marco Giampaolo could make way for Luciano Spalletti for the managerial role.
However, Milan will be facing Genoa who has been struggling too with just five points on board.

Davide Biraschi and Edoardo Goldaniga have returned from their respective injuries and can play a part against Milan.
AC Milan Team News
Milan is on the back of four consecutive defeats, with their last win coming against Brescia on August 31.
Matteo Musacchio is undergoing suspension after getting sent off in the 3-1 defeat to Florentina.
Mattia Caldara also misses out due to injury, which gives Leo Duarte an opportunity to make his debut for the club.
Giampaolo might opt for Rafael Leao to play as the one striker up front in place of Krzystof Piatek.
Samu Castillejo or Ante Rebic would be picked to partner along with Suso in midfield.
Lucas Paqueta did return from injury and make it to the bench against Florentina, but the manager might make him wait a while more before he’s match sharp.
Genoa-Radu; Romero, Zapata, Criscito; Ghiglione, Schone, Radaovanovic, Lerager, Berraca; Sanabria, Kouame
AC Milan- Donarumma; Calabria, Duarte, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Paqueta, Bennacer, Kessie; Suso, Leao, Piatek
In the last six meetings between the two clubs, it’s AC Milan which has enjoyed the majority of the success with four wins to Genoa’s solitary win.
One game ended in level terms during that period.
Genoa has failed to win 15 of their last 15 games in Serie A.
Christian Kouame at centre-forward can prove to be the danger man for Genoa. Kouame has scored three goals in six appearances this season.
For AC Milan Suso in midfield has been one of the rare consistent players. With an 85% pass success ratio can prove to be the difference to unlock Genoa’s defence.
