CM: The starting XI Pioli tested in training plus latest on Messias and Florenzi’s recovery

By Oliver Fisher -

Some more suggestions regarding the team Stefano Pioli intends to use against Porto tomorrow night are beginning to emerge after this afternoon’s training.

As per Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com, the team that Pioli tried in training today comprised of Ciprian Tatarusanu in goal with Davide Calabria, Simon Kjaer, Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez as the back four in front of him from right to left. Despite this, he reports that Alessio Romagnoli should come in and Kjaer will rest.

The double pivot should comprise of Franck Kessie and Sandro Tonali with the Ivorian back from suspension in the reverse fixture, while Brahim Diaz should rejoin the attacking department with Alexis Saelemaekers and Rade Krunic to the right and left of him respectively and Olivier Giroud as the centre-forward.

He adds that Alessandro Florenzi did the second part of training on the pitch but individually, while Junior Messias did some work in the gym and Rebic also did individual work.

The Milan XI tested (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Calabria, Kjaer (Romagnoli), Tomori, Theo; Kessie, Tonali; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Krunic; Giroud.

      Seriously where is he?

    2. Football Drawn says:

      Probably rested for Derby, to be used as impact sub in this one

  2. Peter Arinzechukwu Onyeka says:

    He is too obsessed with Krunic.

  3. Davo says:

    Lord krunic is back to the fold, soon we’d see him between the posts 🤣🤣🤣. Poili must find a way to just feature him

  4. Kelvin says:

    Krunic will soon be wearing the captain armband. Pioli’s love for him is overwhelming.

  5. Geekondrum says:

    Leao has been playing too many games and needs obvious rest. Rebic is not fully fit. Who else can we play at the LW??

    Let’s give krunic a chance

    Mind your there is Derby coming its as crucial as this one…to be honest let’s forget about champions league…let’s just concerntate on series A.

    1. Ivy says:

      Agree, lets be realistic…

  7. Inn says:

    All hope is not lost yet if Milan can win its remaining matches they may likely go through. Though it depends on the outcome of the other matches. We should just keep on praying for them.
