CorSport: Milan’s XI for Torino – Three changes from derby; 4-3-3 returns

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Marco Giampaolo is set to use a 4-3-3 formation for Thursday’s game against Torino, a report claims.

The Rossoneri travel to the Stadio Olimpico in Turin looking to put Saturday’s Derby della Madonnina defeat against Inter behind them.

Goals from Marcelo Brozovic and Romelu Lukaku gave the Nerazzurri the win and made it two defeats in the first four games under Giampaolo thus far.

Milan have in fact scored just one goal from open play all season, and it appears the boss is ready to make changes to help the struggling attack.

According to Tuesday’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport – as cited by @KilpinChronicle on Twitter – Giampaolo will use a 4-3-3 for the game against the Granata.

As Sky Italia reported on Monday, Theo Hernandez and Davide Calabria will start at left-back and right-back respectively, with Ricardo Rodriguez and Andrea Conti dropped.

Hakan Calhanoglu will keep his place in the midfield, as will Franck Kessie, but Ismael Bennacer will regain his spot as Lucas Biglia is set to be benched.

Giampaolo will use a front three with wingers, but there will be no spot for Ante Rebic: instead Rafael Leao and Suso will be either side of Krzysztof Piatek.
