    Serie A Messina vs Ac Milan

    Messina will be hoping to cause a major upset when they host Milan at the San Filippo. Both sides are desperate to catch their rivals, but while the Rossoneri are eyeing a possible Scudetto their opponents are just hoping to still be in Serie A come the end of the season. The Giallorossi could find things difficult though as they have only ever beaten Milan once in Serie A and have never even taken a point from the giants in Sicily.

    Things are starting to get very dangerous for Messina. They now have only four matches to catch up Cagliariís three-point lead if they are to have any chance of avoiding the drop. They will once again be relying on Arturo Di Napoli for goals, but midfielder Massimo Donati will also be eager to impress against his former club.

    With Cagliari playing a winnable tie against Ascoli, the Giallorossi need to make sure they donít increase the gap if they are to have any chance of staying up. But earning those three points here wonít be easy after winning just two of their last 12 fixtures, especially with the absence of the suspended Rahman Rezaei and the injuries to Gaetano DíAgostino and Carmine Coppola.

    Diavolo Coach Carlo Ancelotti faces a difficult decision of whether to rest any key players before their Champions League tie against Barcelona, with Juventus now only five points ahead in the Scudetto race. Even if some players are left out it is still likely to be a strong team due to Ancelottiís belief that both competitions are still winnable for the San Siro outfit.

    There will be no Filippo Inzaghi though as he is still recovering from illness, while Jaap Stam and Serginho may be given a breather. This game is a must win if the Rossoneri want to maintain the pressure on Juve and could give them an important confidence boost ahead of their trip to the Nou Camp after the 1-0 loss on Tuesday.

    I think most of the regular players are going to start, and they should, Imo. Hopefully we'll get the win, and players will go in motivated for the CL game.
    Pirlo and Sheva are the only ones that are out for sure.

    For sure we don't need a repeat of the Lecce, if we'd won that game Milan would have a serious chance for the scudetto, now we must at least secure the valuable 2nd spot.

    Hopefully no injuries, some players like Dida need the confidence, not to mention Gilardino...hope he can score a hat trick or something.


    FORZA MILAN!!!!!
