Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Giovanni Zini will host Tuesday’s Serie A game between Cremonese and Milan, the two teams with totally different ambitions in the 2022/2023 season. Cremonese’s main goal is to secure the elite division survival, but they have yet to record a win in the process. Cyriel Dessers remains on the sidelines with injury, while both Ionut Radu and Vlad Chiriches are major doubts. The Rossoneri, on the other hand, recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over Spezia thanks to Olivier Giroud’s late goal to keep their Scudetto hopes alive.
Stefano Pioli’s men are eager to defend their trophy, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to overtake high-flying Napoli in top position. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Milan crushed Cremonese 7-1 in their last meeting in the Italian top flight, back in 1996. Aforementioned attacker Giroud is banned for the match, as well as defender Theo Hernandez, while midfielder Sandro Tonali is widely expected to return to the starting XI.
Highlighted Team (AC Milan):
AC Milan are regarded as one of the biggest club in Italy. The Rossoneri compete in the Italian Serie A and they have won 18 domestic trophies. Speaking of the club’s European success, Milan have clinched seven Champions League (European Cup) trophies.
Milan were on the verge of beating Liverpool in the 2005 Champions League final, but the Premier League outfit came from three goals behind and eventually won the prestigious trophy on penalties. The Rossoneri play their home games at Stadio San Siro (80,018), the stadium that was opened in 1926. It is well known that Milan’s bitterest rivals are Inter and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Derby della Madonnina.
Milan were founded in 1899 by a lace-maker from England named Herbert Kilpin and a businessman Alfred Edwards. Milan’s home kits are red and black and that is why the team’s nickname is Rossoneri (The Red and Blacks).
The likes of Alessandro Costacurta, Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, Roberto Donadoni, Dejan Savicevic, Frank Rijkaard, Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit and Andrea Pirlo are the most famous footballers who have represented the San Siro outfit.
