Milan name Supercoppa squad

Milan named their squad for Wednesday’s Italian Super Cup meeting with Juventus in Jeddah, including Lucas Paquetá.

The Supercoppa is a one-off match between the Scudetto winners and Coppa Italia holders.

As Juve won both last season, they take on Milan, who were the losing Coppa Finalists.

Gennaro Gattuso and his men fly straight to Jeddah from Genoa, where they beat Sampdoria 2-0 in extra time to reach the Coppa Italia quarter-final.

Suso missed that game through injury, but wouldn’t have made the Supercoppa anyway, as he is suspended.

Lucas Biglia, Mattia Caldara and Giacomo Bonaventura remain on the treatment table.

Riccardo Montolivo is surprisingly called up, considering he hasn’t even taken part in training games between ranks since May 2018.

Paquetá just arrived in a €35m deal from Flamengo and made his Milan debut against Samp, playing for over 80 minutes.

Milan squad for Juventus: A Donnarumma, G Donnarumma, Reina, Abate, Calabria, Conti, Laxalt, Musacchio, Rodriguez, Romagnoli, Simic, Strinic, Zapata, Bakayoko, Bertolacci, Kessie, Mauri, Montolivo, Paqueta, Borini, Calhanoglu, Castillejo, Cutrone, Higuain
