AC Milan’s starting XIs in the last three season openers with Pioli

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan are currently preparing for their opening clash of the season, scheduled to take on Bologna away from home on Monday evening. As we await that game, it’s a perfect opportunity to take a look at the club’s evolution. 

Since Stefano Pioli joined the club in October 2019, a lot certainly has changed. The manager has had three full seasons with the club and the upcoming one will thus be his fourth, as Milan believe consistency brings success.

Pioli has thus been in charge of Milan for three season openers and now is the perfect time to take a look at the starting XIs for those games. As you can see in the featured image, many players have come and gone and if we had included the predicted one for Monday’s clash, that would have been even clearer.

2020/21 – Milan vs. Bologna – (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Calabria, Gabbia, Kjaer, Hernandez; Bennacer, Kessie; Castillejo, Calhanoglu, Rebic; Ibrahimovic.

2021/22 – Sampdoria vs. Milan – (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez; Krunic, Tonali; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leao; Giroud.

2022/23 – Milan vs. Udinese – (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Hernandez; Bennacer, Krunic; Messias, Díaz, Leao; Rebic.
