AC Milan failed to score for the first time this season during last night’s 0-0 draw against Newcastle United at San Siro, and some changes could now come in attack.
La Gazzetta dello Sport recall that Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud were two of the more disappointing notes from the game. The Portuguese winger missed a big chance to score by going for a backheel, while the latter looked a bit off the pace throughout.
Having signed Samuel Chukwueze, Noah Okafor and Luka Jovic in the summer window, it might be time for some changes when Hellas Verona visit on Saturday afternoon.
Three out of four have not yet made an impact and some doubts remain about the choices, but there must be opportunities for those players in order to prove or disprove them.
Giroud could rest for the first time and it is likely that Pioli – before making a decision on Leao – will want to look him in the eyes to see if he needs a rest mentally and physically.
