Maignan disqualified and Sportiello injured, emergency between the posts. Play Mirante
Milan forced to field the third goalkeeper, Marco Mirante, in the match scheduled against Juventus on Sunday 22 October, in the postponement of the ninth matchday of the 2023-2024 Serie A. In addition to starting goalkeeper Mike Maignan, disqualified after being sent off in the 1-0 win against Genoa, Milan will not even have their reserve Marco Sportiello available.
The 31-year-old from Lombardy has in fact suffered an injury to the medial twin of his left calf and will not be available to Stefano Pioli. The third goalkeeper Marco Mirante will therefore play in goal. The forty-year-old goalkeeper boasts only one appearance for the Rossoneri, on the last day of last season, where he came on in place of Maignan.
Juventus also has to deal with a fairly crowded infirmary, a habit for the Juventus team in recent seasons. The Brazilians Alex Sandro and Danilo, who suffered a muscle injury during his last spell with the green and gold national team, were stopped in the pits. The conditions of Federico Chiesa, who was not available in the last two matches of the national team, need to be evaluated. He could recover Dusan Vlahovic, who could find a shirt again after about twenty days out.
