AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is leaning towards starting Giacomo Bonaventura in Saturday’s game against Napoli, a report claims.
The Rossoneri host the Partenopei at San Siro this weekend hoping to overcome their recent struggles and obtain their fifth win of the season and just their second under new head coach Stefano Pioli.
Milan have lost seven of their first 12 games and currently languish down in 14th place, and they would set an unwanted club record with defeat against former boss Carlo Ancelotti.
Pioli has a couple of selection issues to deal with as Ismael Bennacer and Hakan Calhanoglu picked up suspensions for accumulating five yellow cards during the game against Juventus.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews.it), Lucas Biglia will take the place of Bennacer as the regista, while in attack the favorite to replace Calhanoglu seems to be Giacomo Bonaventura, who is ahead of Rebic and Leao.
PROBABLE MILAN XI (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Conti, Duarte, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Krunic, Biglia, Paquetà; Suso, Piatek, Bonaventura.
