AC Milan are likely to stick with a 4-3-1-2 formation against Brescia on Saturday, according to the latest reports.
The Rossoneri failed to register a single shot on target against Udinese on Sunday, and Marco Giampaolo’s interview with Sky Italia after the game (via Football Italia) sparked rumours that the 4-3-1-2 system would be scrapped.
Friday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport stated that Milan could change to a 4-3-2-1 ‘Christmas tree’ formation, with Suso and Giacomo Bonaventura in behind Krzysztof Piatek.
A midfield three of Franck Kessie, Ismael Bennacer and Lucas Paqueta was anticipated by the newspaper, however Giampaolo told reporters in his pre-Brescia presser that his ‘philosophy will not change’.
Now, journalist Daniele Longo has suggested that Giampaolo will indeed stick with the 4-3-1-2, and Samu Castillejo will keep his place in the starting XI.
Lucas Paqueta would be dropped in place of Hakan Calhanoglu, but Kessie and Bennacer are set to start.
Probabile 11 del #Milan: Donnarumma, Calabria, Romagnoli, Musacchio, Rodriguez, Kessie, Bennacer, Calhanoglu, Suso, Castillejo e Piatek
