Cesena vs AC Milan – Robinho and Ibrahimovic looking for starting roles


How AC Milan will line-up in attack is the big question on everyone’s lips as Massimiliano Allegri has to pick a team that can make it back-to-back Serie A victories with an away win at Cesana.

Allegri watched his team open their Serie A campaign with a comprehensive 4-0 home success over Lecce, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robinho have been added to the squad since before the transfer window closed.

The head coach now has the dilemma of whether the new arrivals can be included in a star-studded, four-pronged attack with Ronaldinho and Alexandre Pato, or whether one or two of them will have to make do with a place on the bench.

Robinho is in no doubt that the four can perform on the pitch at the same time and Ibrahimovic has gone as far to say that the team should now be made favourites to win Serie A, although they are currently 9/4.

AC Milan are 1/2 to leave newly-promoted Cesena with maximum points and Ibrahimovic is the 4/1 favourite to open the scoring.

However, Cesena proved on the opening day of the Serie A season that they are unlikely to be easy pushovers as they picked up an unexpected goalless draw away at Roma.

It is 6/1 that another 0-0 draw will materialise in front of the television cameras, while veteran Italian goalkeeper Francesco Antonioli is 7/2 to keep a second consecutive clean sheet.

The last time the pair met in Cesena was in 1990 and Milan triumphed on that occasion 1-0, with a repeat available at 5/1.

Milan are also 1/2 to score first in the game. See the complete Cesena vs AC Milan match betting market.
