AC Milan host Cagliari at the San Siro in a crucial encounter for the Rossoneri as they attempt to secure the last remaining Champions League spot.

With Lazio and AS Roma winning their respective matches this week, the Rossoneri have fallen out of the top 4 of the Serie A and need a win to stay in contention.

In contrast, Cagliari sit 15th in the table without a win in their last 5 matches and desperately need all three points.
