Sports Mole looks ahead to the Serie A clash between AC Milan and Cagliari.

AC Milan will be looking to bounce back from their shock defeat on the opening day of the season against Cagliari on Sunday.

The Rossoneri went down 2-1 at Hellas Verona in their first Serie A game despite taking the lead, thanks to a double from Luca Toni.

However, Massimiliano Allegri's side have since returned to winning ways, getting the better of PSV Eindhoven 3-0 at home to reach the group stage of the Champions League.

On the other hand, Cagliari began their Serie A campaign with a 2-1 home triumph over Atalanta and will head to the San Siro in Milan with confidence.

Neither Milan nor Cagliari are expected to make any change to their respective lineups.
