AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli will once again have to juggle a number of selection problems for this evening’s game against Spezia at San Siro.
The Rossoneri will be without a number of key players including Fikayo Tomori and Simon Kjaer who are both out with knee injuries, Alessio Romagnoli who has only just tested negative for Covid-19, Sandro Tonali who is suspended plus Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer who are at AFCON.
According to what is being reported by this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan should field Mike Maignan in goal with Alessandro Florenzi, Pierre Kalulu, Matteo Gabbia and Theo Hernandez the back four.
Rade Krunic and Tiemoue Bakayoko should be the midfield double pivot out of necessity, while Alexis Saelemaekers, Brahim Diaz and Rafael Leao are expected in the attacking trident behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Florenzi, Kalulu, Gabbia, Theo; Krunic, Bakayoko; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leao; Ibrahimovic.
Probable Spezia XI (4-4-1-1): Provedel; Amian, Erlic, Nikolaou, Rega; Kovalenko, Kiwior, Bastoni, Gyasi; Verde; Nzola.
