GdS: Milan’s probable XI for Atalanta trip – Rodriguez in as the only change

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is reportedly set to make just one change from the previous game against Sassuolo for Sunday’s trip to Atalanta.

The Rossoneri make the short trip north to Bergamo on Sunday to face their Lombardy rivals in what is a huge test before the Christmas break, with La Dea sat in sixth spot and Milan needing to close the gap.

Friday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by – looks at the probable starting XI for the Diavolo of Milan ahead of the match against Atalanta.

According to the newspaper, Pioli will likely use the same XI again as he did in the Parma, Bologna and Sassuolo games with only one forced change: Rodriguez in place of the suspended Theo Hernandez.

That means Gianluigi Donnarumma will keep his place in goal, then the rest of the back four is made up of Andrea Conti, Mateo Musacchio and Alessio Romagnoli.

In the midfield, Ismael Bennacer, Giacomo Bonaventura and Franck Kessié will once again be the trio, while in attack Suso and Hakan Calhanoglu will flank Krzysztof Piatek.
