The blender A league, in fact, it starts today: with the arrival of the European cups next week, the championship begins the famous tour de force that forced us to anticipate and compress the season for the first, strange winter World Cup. You leave every three days, the fourth day begins with the three advances Sassuolo v AC Milan (6.30 pm) e Inter-Cremonese and Rome-Monza (8.45 pm) that mix the high ranking with the low area of the ranking.
SASSUOLO-AC MILAN at 18.30
How sweet is the return to Mapei Stadium for the Rossoneri? Certainly for the fans, who remember the Scudetto won just over three months ago. But also for the team, in particular Leao and Giroud forced to work overtime due to the small ailments of Origi and Rebic. Pioli, on the other hand, knows that there is no time for memories and, despite a rather massive turnover, he wants to arrive at the derby on Saturday with three points and the top of the standings in his pocket. Kjaer will meet again, watch out for the chance for Pobega. Sassuolo hopes to take a little revenge compared to the last match of last season, Dionisi’s team is still looking for stability after the goodbyes of Scamacca and Raspadori. The neroverde coach admitted that it will be a game of suffering but he also promised to want to look for the right spaces to try to hurt the champions.
INTER-CREMONESE at 8.45 pm
Delicate commitment for the Nerazzurri, returning from difficult days on many fronts: first the bad defeat against Lazio, then Lukaku’s injury and the Acerbi issue on the market. But Inzaghi finds the couple on which he based last season, with Lautaro-Dzeko hoping to also review some of the mechanisms of the team that gave him two cups. New chance for Gosens while paying attention to the control room, where Asllani can let Brozovic catch his breath. Alvini’s Cremonese, on the other hand, after having snatched compliments from Mourinho and Italian and met a healthy team like Torino, finally hopes to be able to put some points in the farmhouse to move the ranking: at San Siro the grigiorosso coach could make some changes in defense.
ROME-MONZA 8.45 pm
Spin at the Olimpico: Roma, fresh from equal with Juventus, immediately want to find the way of the three points so as not to lose the pace of the first while Monza is looking for the first points of the championship. Mourinho thinks of a mini-turnover, especially in defense, and maybe bring on the bench and give a few minutes to the new signing Belotti. Forward, however, is Dybala the most charged, still looking for the first official goal in the yellow and red jersey. Stroppa also thinks about some changes in formation with Carlos Augusto and Pessina in midfield, forward there is the recovery of Dany Mota.
