AC Milan vs SPAL: Match preview
Stefano Pioli’s AC Milan are set to welcome struggling SPAL to the San Siro on Wednesday night for a Coppa Italia last-16 clash.
For the Rossoneri, the matchup will come as their competition opener, with the Milanese giants having been narrowly eliminated from last season’s Coppa by eventual winners Lazio at the semi-final stage.
SPAL, on the other hand, have already been forced to see off both FeralpiSalo and Lecce en route to the last-16.
It is hosts Milan, though, who will understandably head into proceedings as favourites to advance to the Coppa’s quarter-finals.
Though Pioli’s outfit have largely-struggled for form throughout the campaign, they are currently in the midst of a run of just 1 defeat in 7 across all competitions.
In addition, their most recent outing saw the Rossoneri secure an impressive 2-0 win at high-flying Cagliari over the weekend, a result which saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic find the net for the first time since his return, and guided the club back into the top half of the Serie A table.
By contrast, minnows SPAL have managed just a solitary league victory since the beginning of October.
A late German Pezzella strike condemned Leonardo Semplici’s outfit to their latest loss at Fiorentina on Sunday, with SPAL glued to the bottom of the Serie A table as things stand, with a dismal 12 points.
