CM: Probable Milan XI vs. SPAL – Paqueta to start as Pioli considers three big changes

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli is looking to make a couple of key changes to his starting XI for Wednesday night’s trip to face SPAL, a report claims.

The Rossoneri will travel south to Ferrera to face a side battling relegation, looking to build on Sunday’s 2-0 win over Roma at San Siro which came off the back of a 4-1 win against Lecce.

According to the latest from, Stefano Pioli is considering making three changes to his starting line-up for the game against SPAL from the XI that beat the Giallorossi.

The head coach is leaning towards starting Davide Calabria at right-back over Andrea Conti, while he is also seriously thinking about giving Alexis Saelemaekers the nod ahead of Samu Castillejo who looked tired on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the same outlet claims that Lucas Paqueta is likely to start over Giacomo Bonaventura in the number 10 role, which means the starting side would look something like this…

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): G. Donnarumma; Calabria, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Kessie, Bennacer; Saelemaekers, Paqueta, Calhanoglu; Rebic.
