The Rossoneri squad in front of their fans have so far obtained 15 points, beating Udinese, Bologna, Inter, Juventus and Monza.

15.40 – Milan have collected twelve points in the last five Serie A matches. The Rossoneri have won twelve points, beating Empoli, Juventus, Verona and Monza in the series but suffering an away defeat against Turin. The Spezia, on the other hand, has collected only one point in the last five rounds, drawing only against Cremonese and losing against Lazio, Monza, Salernitana and Fiorentina.
15.10 – For the match against Spezia, Stefano Pioli could decide to give Sandro Tonali some rest by inserting Rade Krunic in his place in the median. The Rossoneri midfielder would start off the bench for the third time ever this season. Previously, the 2000 class was not included in the starting eleven only against Sassuolo and Monza and playing fifteen races as a starter.
14.50 – Luca Gotti, the Spezia coach, released the squad list in view of the match valid for the thirteenth day of Serie A scheduled for tonight at San Siro against Milan. Nikolaou will be disqualified while Bastoni and Kovalenko will not be there due to injury. Below is the complete list:
Goalkeepers: Zoet, Zovko, Dragowski.

14.20 – Spezia will be Milan’s next opponent in the league. The Ligurian team, which this evening hosted by the Rossoneri in the match valid for the thirteenth day of Serie A, is the favorite victim of all for Rafael Leao. In fact, in four matches, the Portuguese forward punished the bianconeri three times, also scoring a brace in the 2020/2021 season.
14.00 – Micheal Fabbri of the Ravenna section will be the referee of Milan-Spezia. This season, the Romagna whistle has already refereed the Rossoneri in Genoa against Sampdoria, characterized by the expulsion of Leao for a double yellow card given to him for an allegedly forbidden blow to Berezyinski the first and for the overhead on Ferrari the second. In total, Fabbri has refereed the Rossoneri 9 times: 5 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats. The other very negative precedent is in Juventus-Milan in 2019, when he did not concede, despite the VAR, a penalty to Milan due to a net foul by Alex Sandro’s hands on Calhanoglu’s cross and gave Juventus a penalty to Musacchio’s foul on Dybala.
13.40 – Milan have won 26 points in the first twelve days of Serie A. The Rossoneri are third after Atalanta (27) and Napoli (32) but they can boast the second best attack in the league (25) always after the Neapolitans (30). The Spezia, on the other hand, has collected only nine points so far and is in sixteenth place with a margin of only three points on the relegation zone.
13.20 – Milan-Spezia will be the seventh home Serie A match that the Italian champions will play at San Siro. The Rossoneri squad in front of their fans have so far obtained 15 points, beating Udinese, Bologna, Inter, Juventus and Monza. The only knockout concerns the match lost on September 18th against Napoli. Stefano Pioli’s team also boasts the best home attack together with Napoli (16).
