Copa Italia action onTuesday night comes from the San Siro where Milan will take on Sassuolo. Sassuolo shocked Milan in the league last week when coming from one down to win 2-1. The star man for Sassuolo is zaza and the Italian international showed his class against agaisnt Milan scoring the winner for Sassuolo. This is a hard working team that just doesnt quit and with a number of young players like Zaza and Berardi these is alot of positivity about this side and optimism about the ability of the team to compete in the coming years. Having lost only one of their last thirteen games there is no doubt Sassuolo will be well up for this Copa Italia game and will fancy their chances of causing another upset here.
Milan come into this game off the back of 1-1 draw at Torino, Milan played the entire second half with 10 men and were in serious jeopardy of losing the game because of the sending off. Inzaghi's side though defended superby and got away from Torino with a point. They come home to the San Siro to take on a Sassuolo team that beat them last week. Milan are led by Honda and Mendez this season although Honda is now away at the Asian games. Milan are missing a top class striker as Mendez , more of a winger, has been playing through the center. El Sharawaay showed some form in recent challenge games and the question is will Inzaghi give him a chance to lead the line?
Another interesting game from Italy tonight. I liked Sassuolo last week to get the upset and I like them again tonight but I do think that Milan may have more motivation to try to win this cup as their fans will expect some improvement from last season and Champions League football is looking really unlikely. I am going to take both teams to score here though as I think the visitors cause Milan plenty of problems, especially the elusive Zaza.
