Serie A has confirmed that Milan’s opener against Crotone has been moved forward to Sunday, August 20.
The match had initially been scheduled for Monday 21, but Milan’s Europa League playoff second leg against Shkendija will be played just three days later.
Consequently, the decision has been taken so that the Rossoneri have more time to prepare for their trip to FYR Macedonia.
The first leg, meanwhile, is arranged for next Thursday at San Siro.
