Milan vs Genoa

Serie A 2007/08 - Week 20

Sunday, January 27, 2008

Stadio Meazza

Time : 14:00 (UK); 15:00 (IT)


Alexandre Pato gets another chance to shine at San Siro, but it could be another striker owned by Milan – Marco Borriello – who hits the headlines.

So much hype surrounded the Ka-Pa-Ro trio of Brazilians and that only intensified after Ronaldo and Pato scored in the 5-2 thrashing of Napoli on the debut of the system. Yet they failed to spark at the weekend with their 1-0 victory at Udinese coming deep into stoppages thanks to substitute Alberto Gilardino, who up until then had been put on the shelf and considered a transfer.

Now Carlo Ancelotti has some difficult choices to make with only Pippo Inzaghi ruled out by injury and Clarence Seedorf vocal in his demands to play as a Trequartista. The statistics count against Gila, as all six of his goals were scored away from home, but he could get his chance in Wednesday’s postponed match at Atalanta. The tie was called off only a few minutes in as Orobici fans broke down a Plexiglas barrier in protest at the death of Lazio fan Gabriele Sandri, accidentally shot by a policeman on November 11.

Yet one should not forget this is the first time this season that the Rossoneri have won two Serie A games on the trot, the Napoli match being their only home victory. The big difference from Udine is the return from suspension of midfield metronome Andrea Pirlo, which is bound to drastically change the balance of the side. Paolo Maldini is on the road to recovery from a bout of flu, but Marek Jankulovski, Serginho and Nelson Dida are unlikely to recover, so Zeljko Kalac looks set to retain the gloves after a fine performance at the Stadio Friuli.

Genoa have reason to be confident as well, though, as they have won three consecutive games and have Milan-owned Borriello on stunning form. The striker this week admitted he would like a recall to San Siro, but that the Rossoblu provided him with more stability and opportunity to play. This has been easily his best season, as in 16 games he has scored as many goals as the previous five Serie A campaigns put together.

However, unlike Gilardino, he gets travel sickness with just three of those 11 goals scored outside Marassi. He’ll need to change that run if Genoa are to break their drought in the Giuseppe Meazza, where they haven’t scored in the top flight in their last three visits, nor earned a point since that 1-1 draw in November 1991. Although the last away victory was a stunning 5-1 result, it was way back in May 1958.

Domenico Criscito is suspended and Julio Cesar Leon sits out a ban, so Santos is expected to slot into the three-man defence. Although Lucho Figueroa snatched the last-minute winner against Atalanta last week, he is still not considered match fit, so midfielder Marco Rossi could be pushed up into the trident attack with Giuseppe Sculli and Borriello, the system switching to a 5-4-1 when losing possession. January signing Anthony Vanden Borre from Fiorentina is in training and could make his debut for the club, but the former Anderlecht wide man has so far played just 42 minutes of Serie A football.

Keep an eye on: Alexandre Pato (Milan) – The Duck made a sensational debut in this stadium and the pressure will be on again as the Brazilian trident begins to hone its rapport.


Last season: Not played

Form guide: Milan (W D L W W) Genoa (L D W W W)

Milan (probable): Kalac; Bonera, Nesta, Kaladze, Favalli; Gattuso, Pirlo, Seedorf; Kaka, Pato, Ronaldo

Genoa (probable): Rubinho; Bovo, De Rosa, Santos; Konko, Paro, Juric, Fabiano; Rossi, Borriello, Sculli

1-1. Borriello to score for them.

I think it's stupid letting players you own play against you, it can only come back to haunt you.

If Gasperini chooses to play with the 3-4-3 again (apart from being stupid) will see his team crashed.

Borriello is nothing special... I just hope Kaladze does not play! Where are you Paolo?? (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

We should try Bonera at CB and Oddo at RB... but it's not going to happen. Hopefully Janku will be back for this game.

I'd like to see

Dida
Oddo-Nesta-Bonera-Janku
Gattuso-Pirlo-Seedorf
Kaka
Pato-Ronaldo

but we'll most likely see channel4's probable formation.

Oh, he is very very special. I don't know if you saw him when he was 20-21. But he was a great talent. But he is just as dumb as Kaladze. He is in the exact same mold as him. He is always playing for himself. When he gets the ball and he has 5 players in front of him, he tries some weird trick that he just made up thinking he is the most skillful player in the world. And of course he loses out. That led him to scoring some spectacular goals however, but his ratio is like 1 in 20....

Yes he started well, I had high hopes for him and even last season I though he might be a very good player coming off the bench but he is terribly inconsistent. Sometimes he'll do something great and next time he might not even make a good pass.

I'm pretty certain that if we don't win this one we are out of the running for 4th. And our objective will be the UEFA cup.

Last night's performance was a disgrace, from the moment the 2nd hald started. And imo, what we need is a new coach, this same Milan used to turn something like yesterday's equiliser before half time from something bad, to something that will give them further motivation to win the match. What we lack is that someone who can give the team that belief and Carlo is not doing that anymore.

After this season either we make the neccesary changes, from coach to players who are not needed anymore, or we will become a UEFA cup team.

must win match.

2 - 1 will be the score.

I have a feeling Borriello will score a fluky goal. (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif)

but lets be optimistic shall we? (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/cool.gif)
