WOMEN, POMIGLIANO v AC MILAN: MATCH PREVIEW

On matchday 7 of the Relegation Round, the Rossonere are looking to record their seventh consecutive victory

The Rossonere’s fifth Relegation Round match in the 2023/24 Women’s Serie A will see them face Pomigliano Women at 12:30 CEST on Wednesday 1 May at the Stadio Amerigo Liguori in Torre del Greco (NA). Having sat last weekend out, Coach Corti’s side are eager to return to action and continue their fine form. Here is everything you need to know ahead of the upcoming clash.

LATEST FROM THE PUMA HOUSE OF FOOTBALL
The Rossonere failed to win their last two away matches against Pomigliano, drawing one and losing the other. In Torre del Greco, AC Milan will be looking to put that right but will have to do so without captain Valentina Bergamaschi, who is suspended. Meanwhile, Mascarello and Piga are one booking away from missing the team’s next game. Both Evelyn Ijeh, who bagged a brace in Bogliasco on 21 April, and Chanté Dompig have been highly impressive recently, helping the team raise its level. The Rossonere have won four out of four in the Relegation Round and six consecutive matches when the end of the regular season is also considered. Let’s keep it up.

The Rossonere squad: Babb, Copetti, Giuliani; Fusetti, Guagni, Mesjasz, Piga, Swaby; Cernoia, Cesarini, Dubcová, Mascarello, Rubio, Soffia, Vigilucci; Arrigoni, Dompig, Ijeh, Laurent, Marinelli, Stašková, Stokić. 

LATEST FROM POMIGLIANO
Pomigliano, who have eight points to their name and trail Napoli by four, are the favourites to go down, especially given their current poor run of results. After seven consecutive defeats, they did manage to draw against both Napoli and Samp in their most recent two outings, but they’re still without a win since 19 November. The match against the Rossonere perhaps represents a final opportunity to give themselves a fighting chance.

PRE-MATCH STATS
