Despite having a team that still looks very solid on paper, even with the departures of Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, AC Milan are in a bit of a rut. They've lost two of their opening three games in Serie A, and their attack currently looks anemic. Without Riccardo Montolivo in the lineup against Atalanta, they were lacking in creativity and fell at home to Stefano Colatuono's side.
Montolivo should return to the team when they host Anderlecht, along with central defender Philippe Mexes, so expect a slightly stronger Milan team than the one that lost on Saturday. Anderlecht will provide competent opposition, but they're not in exceptional form either.
While they are undefeated in Belgium, Anderlecht also have more draws than they do wins. They drew away to Lierse this weekend with a first team and it would be a minor surprise to see them nick a draw. They will make at least one change from this weekend's team, as center forward Milan Jovanovic is suspended.
