Milan - Sampdoria

AC Milan – Sampdoria intro:

Tomorrow on the program is the match Milan – Sampdoria, as part of the Serie A match-day 10. AC Milan sits 13th on the Serie A table, while Sampdoria is 5th. Milan this season play not very convincing football. This can be confirmed by the results from the first 8 games from which we managed to win only 3. The latest loss against Inter was very disappointing, and the loss against Betis in Europa League just confirmed the crisis. On the other side Sampdoria is playing really good football, especially if we take in consideration the quality of the team. They have not lost 4 games in row and are in Europa League position. This match can mean a lot for both teams, especially in terms of confidence and both of them will try to win all 3 points.

Additional information

This match will be for great importance to Genaro Gattuso, because the rumors which say that he will be replaced are stronger and stronger. If Genaro does not win this game, there is big chance that the Milan management will replace him. The biggest candidates for his job currently are the former Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger and Roberto Donadoni.

As result from these threats, our reports say the Genaro will change the formation from 4-3-3 to 3-5-2 . This change is because he must make some changes into the team in order to give some freshness. Another positive thing is that he intends to play both Higuain and Cutrone, something that may have positive outcome.
