Gallery: ‘Pioli launches Maldini’, ‘Third Maldini is ready’ – Today’s front pages of Italian papers

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan will take on Spezia this afternoon and after beating Venezia by two goals to nil, they will be looking to extend the unbeaten run. There will be a few things to keep an extra eye on this time out. 

Stefano Pioli will make a few changes to the starting XI, as you would expect. After all, they will face Atletico Madrid in what will be a very important game in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.

Daniel Maldini will make his first start, for example, which has been highlighted by the newspapers. Gazzetta Dello Sport wrote the following on their front page: “The turnover of Pioli. The third Maldini is ready and the return of Giroud.”

Tuttosport had a similar headline: “Pioli launches Maldini. The big news could be Daniel as an attacking midfielder. Giroud is back”. Corriere Dello Sport also had a similar approach: “Pioli in La Spezia finds Giroud. Among the Rossoneri ideas is Maldini jr behind the Frenchman”.
