GdS: Milan’s probable XI to face Crotone – Colombo to start again as Rebic returns

By Isak Möller -

Following the 3-2 win against Bodo/Glimt in the Europa League qualifiers, Milan are now gearing up to take on Crotone in the second league game of the season. Of course, they will be looking to continue their winning streak. 

Alessio Romagnoli and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are still unavailable, due to injury and quarantine respectively, which means that Stefano Pioli is expected to make few changes to the starting eleven. In fact, Lorenzo Colombo will keep his spot up front.

According to today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport (see photo), the 18-year-old will get the chance once again after getting on the scoresheet against Bodo/Glimt. He certainly proved that he’s good enough to act as Ibrahimovic’s deputy.

Ante Rebic, who is serving a ban in Europa League, is available and will start on the left flank. This means that Alexis Saeleamekers will resort to the bench after what was a positive performance against

Likely Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Calabria, Kjaer, Gabbia, Hernandez; Kessie, Bennacer; Castillejo, Calhanoglu, Rebic; Colombo.
