CorSera: Cautious optimism filters regarding return of duo for crucial Lazio clash

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could well have have a key duo available for tomorrow night’s game against Lazio after all despite doubts, a report claims.

By virtue of necessity Pioli will look for a solution against Lazio, when he will also have to do without Kessié as well as Ismael Bennacer, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Simon Kjaer and Matteo Gabbia.

Tonali came off at half-time against Sassuolo and Ante Rebic missed the game, meaning there are fears they too could also be added to the long list of absentees.

According to what is being reported by il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews), there is cautious optimism for both the Croatian and the Italian midfielder but a decision will come later today based on whether they take part in training.

If Tonali were to miss out, it means that Hakan Calhanoglu could be in the double pivot with Rade Krunic, who at the moment is the only midfielder available.
