GdS: Probable XIs for Milan vs. Juventus – Krunic expected to start over Bennacer

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face arguably their biggest home game of the season tonight when they ‘welcome’ Juventus to San Siro, hoping to respond in the best way to the Spezia defeat.

According to what is being reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Mike Maignan will be the goalkeeper for the Rossoneri with Davide Calabria returning as the right-back for his first start in months. Pierre Kalulu retains his place at centre-back alongside the returning Alessio Romagnoli, plus Theo Hernandez on the left.

Sandro Tonali is back from suspension to take up a place in the double pivot again with Rade Krunic expected to get the nod as well over Tiemoue Bakayoko. Regarding the attack, Junior Messias and the in-form Rafael Leao should occupy the wings with Brahim Diaz the playmaker and Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the line.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kalulu, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Tonali, Krunic; Messias, Diaz, Leao; Ibrahimovic.

Probable Juventus XI (3-5-2): Szczesny; De Sciglio, De Ligt, Chiellini, Alex Sandro; Bentancur, Locatelli; Cuadrado, Dybala, McKennie; Morata.

    1. I would have preferred Ibra start in no 10 role, while Giroud starts as main striker, Ibra did well against spezia, when Giroud came in & he fell back, he wins aerial balls from long balls from our gk & defenders & he can hold defenders, which gives Leao more freedom to operate with giroud & giroud does have a good stats when he starts at San siro, 6 starts, 6 wins, if luck has anything to do with it, I would prefer Salaemakers over messias too, we need all the energy to support ibra’s age

      1. totally agree, Ibra draws defenders wearever he goes opening up play for Leao and Giroud, Sael is not liked by many, but way more dynamic than Messias, was disappointed against Spezia when Pioli subbed Messias for Sael who had a couple of legitimate shots on goal. Viva Milano
