Milan coach Stefano Pioli has named his XI for this evening’s encounter as French striker Olivier Giroud makes a rare start.
Of course, we can not fail to mention that we could have had the full complement of ten matches billed for today, but Covid-19 has ensured that four of those games have been postponed.
Tonight’s headline fixtures will see AC Milan welcome Jose Mourinho and his Roman army to the San Siro, while Juventus will square off against Napoli. Both games promises to be exciting and if we are to take into account what has transpired in the matches earlier on, then we are surely in for a treat!
