Following the disappointing 2-2 draw against Lecce, Milan will be looking to get back to winning ways on Sunday evening, taking on Roma away from home. However, it won’t be easy for the San Siro side, given their recent form.
According to today’s edition of La Gazzetta Dello Sport (via SempreMilan.com), Stefano Pioli could opt for more or less the same starting eleven against Roma, as he was impressed with his side in the first half against Lecce.
However, we can expect at least one change to be made. Calabria is back from suspension and as reported by the newspaper, he’s ahead of Conti in the race for a starting spot. Furthermore, Pioli still has doubts about the attack, especially in the centre-forward role.
Against Lecce, Leao played from start and did well overall. That said, his finishing was far from perfect and Piatek, who replaced him in the second half, managed to get on the scoresheet with a distinct finish.
Likely AC Milan XI (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Calabria, Musacchio, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Kessie, Biglia, Paqueta, Suso, Leao, Calhanoglu.
