GdS: AC Milan’s probable XI for Juve encounter – Pioli to use a 3-4-2-1

By Isak Möller -

On the eve of the game between Juventus and AC Milan, Gazzetta Dello Sport have released their probable line-ups for the clash (via MilanEye on Twitter). As for the Rossoneri, Stefano Pioli has decided to switch formations. 

After a very disappointing start to the season, which hasn’t exactly got better since the managerial change, something needs to be done. Per the newspaper, Pioli will op for a different line-up this time out, looking to use the qualities at his disposal in the best way.

With a 3-4-2-1 formation, he will be able to add Rodriguez to a three-man backline, which should provide them with more coverage on the left flank. Furthermore, Hernandez will get even more freedom to attack, playing in the midfield instead.

The midfield will consist of the two full-backs (Conti and Hernandez) and a tandem of Bennacer and Krunic, according to the newspaper’s prediction. In other words, Kessie will start on the bench for the second consecutive game, which hasn’t happened before.

AC Milan (3-4-2-1): Donnarumma; Duarte, Romagnoli, Rodriguez; Conti, Bennacer, Krunic, Hernandez; Suso, Calhanoglu; Piatek.
