Technical and tactical drills on Friday as AC Milan prep continues. Giampaolo press conference on Saturday

With just over 48 hours to go until the big match against AC Milan, Sampdoria gathered back at the training ground on Friday morning to crank up their preparations for the visit to San Siro.

After a warm-up, the players were guided through a series of technical and tactical drills focusing specifically on Sunday’s game.

Primavera midfielder Andrea Tessiore and U16 defender Emanuel Ercolano joined in with the first team today.

Elsewhere Jacopo Sala did personalised work due to an ankle problem while Dennis Praet continued with his recovery programme.

The Blucerchiati will train again on Saturday morning before Marco Giampaolo sits down with the media around 13:00 CET to preview the match. As usual, you can get live updates on Twitter and watch highlights on Samp TV later.
