Pioli was forced to rotate his side against Atalanta owing to Theo Hernandez and Ismael Bennacer being suspended, and Alessio Romagnoli and Andrea Conti being injured. The suspended pair are back in contention on Wednesday and should slot straight back into the side in place of Diego Laxalt and Lucas Biglia. Milan’s attacking players were a little off the pace against Atalanta, but Pioli is unlikely to make mass changes in that department – if any – for this midweek clash. As for Sampdoria, Felice D’Amico and Albin Ekdal are their two confirmed injury absentees, suffering from foot and ankle injuries respectively. Omar Colley and Ronaldo Vieira missed the Juventus game through suspension but are in line for recalls here. Gaston Ramirez was given the nod over Manolo Gabbiadini at the weekend, but Ranieri may bring in the latter alongside Fabio Quagliarella for this one.
