Line-ups: Sampdoria – Milan

Carlos Bacca has been dropped to the bench for Milan’s Serie A meeting with Sampdoria.

Reports earlier on Friday suggested the Colombian would make way for Gianluca Lapadula following a fall-out with Coach Vincenzo Montella, and so it has proved.

Lapadula takes his place alongside Suso and M’Baye Niang in an expected 4-3-3 line-up for the Rossoneri. Mattia De Sciglio misses out through injury.

Sampdoria meanwhile are missing the suspended Ricky Alvarez, sent off in the dramatic 3-2 defeat to Roma last weekend.

Kick-off at Stadio Luigi Ferraris is at 19.45 BST. The referee will be Massimiliano Irrati.
