AC Milan predicted lineup vs Sampdoria : Match Preview
AC Milan will be looking to continue their strong form from the backend of last season into the new 2021/2022 season as Stefano Pioli remains the manager after successive impressive performances. Although they are missing out on a few key players, this outfit looks strong enough to mount a good start to the season. Sampdoria will try and learn from the ups and downs from last season and they certainly see an opportunity to outplay the Italian Giants in this clash.
AC Milan predicted lineup vs Sampdoria : Latest Team News
Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be the big name missing out from the AC Milan team for the opening game due to the knee injury he suffered in June which has kept him out for the past few months and he was unable to play even a single pre season friendly game, thus it is unlikely for him to feature in the opening match vs Sampdoria. Franck Kessie is another player from the Milan camp who will be missing out due to injury.
Brahim Diaz who returned to Milan from Madrid for another loan spell is expected to start in attack just behind Olivier Giroud, the very experienced striker from Chelsea. Mike Maignan has been in goal for most of the pre season friendlies and is likely to continue doing so, after the departure if Gianluigi Donnarumma to PSG.

AC Milan predicted lineup vs Sampdoria : Match Prediction and Live Stream
Although pre season friendlies are played with the motive to improve match fitness before the start of every new season and results don’t really matter, it is to be noted that Sampdoria has had a successful run of games in preseason while AC Milan’s defense on the other hand has been found out a couple of times. Sampdoria may try and exploit this part of Milan’s formation. AC Milan could very well run away with the result if their experienced players come to the front and take the game by its neck. We predict a 1-1 draw between the two teams.
