Ballardini changes for Milan

Davide Ballardini has already taken points off Juventus, but notes Cagliari “will take a different approach” against Milan.

The Sardinians earned a surprise 1-1 draw at the Juventus Stadium earlier this month and hope to cause another upset on Sunday evening at San Siro.

“It is not going to be the same type of game, because we are talking about two different opponents,” said the Coach.

“Therefore we will take a different approach. Milan have extremely strong individual talents, while Juventus are stronger as a team unit.

“Of course it does still require the utmost focus and concentration. We’re getting some important players back to fitness now, as Daniele Conti is doing better.”

Mauricio Pinilla is in the squad and could make his Cagliari debut after joining from Palermo this week.

“I know him well and Pinilla is a player who will do well both at and for Cagliari. He is a centre-forward capable of playing for the team.”

Cagliari squad:Agazzi, Avramov; Agostini, Astori, Canini, Gazzi, Perico, Pisano; Ceppelini, Conti, Cossu, Dessena, Ekdal, Nainggolan; El Kabir, Ibarbo, Larrivey, Thiago Ribeiro, Pinilla
