Having done quite well in recent Coppa Italia tournament, AC Milan are looking to at least experience similar result as they want to reach the final stage once again.
Rossoneri Keen On Coppa Glory
Getting into the final round in two out of the last three edition, Milan certainly keen on going far once again but before thinking about it, Rossoneri must take down Sampdoria.
Playing away to Blucherciati on Saturday, January 12 won’t be an easy task for Gennaro Gatusso’s men, but the Red and Black squad will give their best.
Milan will still be without several important names for that game as Lucas Biglia, Mattia Caldara and Giacomo Bonaventura haven’t recover from their injuries.
Potential departures rumors on Gonzalo Higuain and Hakan Calhanoglu are far from pleasing, but Gatusso is hoping that it won’t distract their focus.
Sampdoria Keen On Upsetting Milan
The home team themselves have been experiencing a quite roller coaster ride so far this season but were done relatively well on December.
Before losing to Juventus on their end of year league fixture, Marco Giampolo’s side were unbeaten in seven games, including one Coppa victory over SPAL.
Sampdoria will be looking to start their new year with another positive result, but it might not be an easy task for them.
Although the Rossoneri didn’t have the best of December, they did won their last match and that can trigger their confidence ahead of the weekend Coppa match.
