Milan takes on the Czech team tomorrow at the San Siro in Champions League qualifying action.
Champions League Preview: Milan-Slovan Liberec
Milan make their official season debut on Wednesday in San Siro where they will face Czech champions Slovan Liberec in the first leg match of the Champions League's qualifying round.
This is SoccerAges's projected Milan lineup:
Milan (4-4-2): Abbiati; Simic, Roque Junior, Maldini, Kaladze; Gattuso, Ambrosini, Rui Costa, Serginho; Shevchenko, Inzaghi
They predict Milan will win only 1-0.
I'd be happy with a 1-0. it's away from home and than they have to come to Milan! You guys should be happy ur not playing Sporting or Feyenoord, or manyoo, or fenerbahce, or barca, or depor, or newcastle, or munich! How did you get Slovan what's their face and we got Sporting when we placed higher in the league than you?
The first leg is in Milan so 1-0 would be a disappointment. And Inter had a fairly easy qualifying match two years ago and still didn't advance.
The main thing is not to give up any away goals.
A 1-0 win at home would mean all they need to do is score in Liberec. But obviously a 2 or 3-0 win would be perfect.
Here is the lineup Milan will go with against Slovan Liberec:
Abbiati; Contra, Roque Junior, Maldini, Kaladze; Gattuso, Ambrosini, Rui Costa, Serginho; Inzaghi, Shevchenko.
I expect to see Seedorf in the second half if Milan struggle to score. Gattuso is the most likely candidate to be subbed.
Audio of the game(in Italian) can be found here:
11' Slovan Liberec hit the post
25' Laursen replaces Roque Junior
Roque Junior taken off at 27th minute. Announcers are saying separated shoulder. It was a nasty fall, and the replay shows that it could be bad.
Liberec is dominating this match. Two shots off the post.
Anyone know why Rivaldo isn't even on the subs bench? Kinda important match one would think...Much better that cherry picker Inzaghi.
Rivaldo isn't playing because they say he isn't fit enough. He just started training last week. He will be playing in the return leg though.
Error on Liberec defender leads to a Sheva shot in the boox. He was off by oh...I'll say 25 yards. Closer to the corner pole than to the goal.
Ambrosini dives, but gets the call anyways. Rui Costa free kick from the 25 leads to nothing.
LIberec on the attack, fouled at the 35. Gattuso carded for enchroaching on the kick. Kick comes to nothing.
The crowd is starting to whistle in the stadium. A poor first half by Milan. I expect to see Gattuso be replaced by either Pirlo or Seedorf.
That's one way to put it.
I'd prefer to say an excellent showing by Liberec.
Second half underway (50').
Although it looks like a shaky performance it's huge that we haven't gaven up the away goal.
Hopefully we'll change things around in the second half...
45' Dida has replaced Abbiati in goal.
52' Serginho hits the bar.
60' Serginho replaced by Seedorf
One last push for a goal. Seedorf should have played from the beginning.
68' GOAL Inzaghi
Milan 1-0 Slovan Liberec
77th minute now
72' Inzaghi hits the bar.
Milan are really pushing for another goal. I just hope they don't get caught on the counter.
In extra time now. If the score stays the same it's gonna be a tense night in Liberec for the 2nd leg...
90' Shevchenko hits the bar.
4 minutes of extra time added.
FT Milan 1-0 Slovan Liberec
Hopefully Rivaldo will add a much needed presence to the Milan attack in two weeks.
Milan AC 1-0 FC Slovan Liberec
Inzaghi inspires tame Milan
Filippo Inzaghi scored the only goal as Milan AC earned a hard-fought 1-0 home victory against Czech side FC Slovan Liberec in their UEFA Champions League third qualifying round first-leg encounter at the Giuseppe Meazza stadium...
