MIL vs GEN Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
AC Milan have a golden opportunity to move into top-4 when they travel to face Genoa C.F.C. in Serie A at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris, on Monday evening (IST).
Despite the injury piling up and a huge difference in the quality of AC Milan and Juventus, the 18-time Italian Champions can move into the Champions League places with an away win over Genoa in their next match.
Though it could be a temporary stay within that elite group, if Milan manages to finish in the top-4 this season, it will be a huge achievement for Gennaro Gattuso and his beleaguered team which is lacking quality players in almost all the departments.
The 0-1 defeat to Juventus in the Supercopa Italiana was Milan’s first in four games. However, it’s not a good indicator of their form as the Rossoneri have recorded just two wins in the last 8 league games, while four ended in draws. It’s a return of just 10 points out of the maximum 24. Not good for a team vying to close the gap on the top teams.
But the situation is Serie A is that apart from the usual high standards of Juventus, almost all the teams suffer bad results here and there and that’s the reason why Milan can move into the top-4 after this round.
Genoa meanwhile are bracing themselves for the departure of their super striker Krzysztof Piątek who is set to become a Milan player in the near future. How will the team cope without Piatek is a question which may be answered in the next few weeks.
Coming into this match, the hosts are 14th in the table, having won just five times in the first 19 matches.

Genoa vs AC Milan Team News:
Injured – No injury concerns for the hosts ahead of this match.
Suspended – Genoa’s super-striker Krzysztof Piatek is expected to complete a move to AC Milan in the next few days. The Polish International, however, is suspended for the clash after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season in the last game.
Questionable – None at this moment.
Note: With Piatek out, Andrea Favilli will be spearheading the attack for the hosts.
Key Players – Andrea Favilli, Kouame
Injured – AC Milan’s legendary former player Gennaro Gattuso is yet to win over the fans completely. But his chances has been cut down by not only the quality of the squad in comparison to what the likes of Juventus, Napoli and city rivals Inter Milan boast these days, but add a huge number of injured players to the list, it looks grim for the manager.
At the moment, seven first-team players are out of contention for the 18-time Italian Champions, four of those to injuries.
Ivan Strinic, Mattia Caldara, Lucas Biglia and Giacomo Bonaventura are the players currently spending time in the treatment room.
Suspended – While as many as three players will be serving the suspension. Alessio Romagnoli received his fifth booking of the season in the Coppa Italiana, while Frank Kessie was given the marching orders and Davide Calabria was another casualty in the 0-1 loss against Juventus.
Questionable – None here.
Note: Gonzalo Higuain is on the cusp of becoming a Chelsea player, so we don’t think he will be given a chance in this game to say goodbye to AC Milan. Patrick Cutrone is expected to lead the attack. Also, January arrival Lucas Paqueta has impressed in his first two games for his new team, having played in the Coppa Italia and Supercopa Italiana.
In addition, Suso is set to start for the away side after missing the last match due to a suspension.
Key Players – Cutrone, Suso

MIL vs GEN Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
AC Milan have a better head-to-head record against Genoa, winning 13 times in the 23 overall meetings while losing six times.
However, the history holds importance only so much and the current predicament for Rossoneri is to deal with the present which indicates that they may struggle in this match. This fact is highlighted by the dearth of attacking players at San Siro, while Gonzalo Higuain is not expected to play either having agreed on a move to Chelsea.
Can a shorthanded AC Milan beat Genoa?
We think so as the hosts have their own problems.
A win for the visitors is our call.
