The first Serie A game of the new season for Milan and Sampdoria will kick off at the prestigious Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Monday, August 23 and both teams will do their best to start this season with a win to avoid confidence problems and continue the preparation for the upcoming matches without too much stress or worry, as winning always allows the team to work in serenity and gives the players extra motivation to do even better.
Despite playing away, Milan will be needing a first win as soon as possible to start their journey towards the title or at least the top four spots, like they did last season. And despite losing some of their best players for free, such as Gianluigi Donnarumma to PSG and Hakan Çalhanoğlu to Inter Milan following the expiry of their contracts, Milan will still compete for the top spots as they recruited some promising names as well.
Perhaps the most fundamental new player will be Mike Maignan, the French goalkeeper who came to replace Donnarumma after a successful season and six years at LOSC. Moreover, following the end of Diogo Dalot’s loan period, Milan bought the services of Fodé Ballo-Touré from Monaco to be the substitute of Theo Hernandez given that the team will need two players minimum on each position since Milan will compete in three important competitions: Serie A, UEFA Champions League and the Italian Cup.
In addition to these transfers, Milan extended the loan period of Brahim Díaz and won the right to buy him after the loan period finishes. And although they will need another player to play as an advanced playmaker instead of Brahim Díaz in certain games, the Rossoneri bought another excellent attacking addition to play alongside or instead of Zlatan Ibrahimović when the latter is not available. This new player is the UEFA Champions League winner Olivier Giroud, an experienced striker who knows how to score goals even from difficult situations and has excellent playmaking skills.
On the other side, Sampdoria will also rely on their star Fabio Quagliarella as well as their other talented players like Antonio Candreva, Mikkel Damsgaard and Manolo Gabbiadini to break Milan’s defence and try to win the game and start the season in an excellent fashion, yet their mission will not be simple against the Rossoneri.
