GdS: Pioli handed huge double boost ahead of Roma trip as star duo return

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli should welcome back two crucial pieces ahead of Sunday’s trip south to face Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.

According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) writes how Pioli has been battling some selection problems due to a list of injuries and two areas that have been hit in particular are the left-back and attacking midfielder roles, where Fode Ballo-Toure, Pierre Kalulu, Rade Krunic and Daniel Maldini have been filling in.

Milan have managed to keep winning even without Theo Hernandez and Brahim Diaz, but facing the crucial upcoming games against Roma, Porto and Inter with the Frenchman and the Spaniard back in the line-up will be huge.

Theo will advantage of a few days without a game to regain some shape after having recovered from Covid and playing the second half against Torino, while Brahim Diaz also has a good chance of playing at the Olimpico, but Pioli has no intention of taking any risks and it will depend on training whether he starts.

    Whatever happens I don’t want to see Krunic in the lineup against Roma. If Diaz is not fit to start, he should start with a midfield trio of Kessie, Tonali and Bennacer, with Tonali playing as number 10.

      I second you here

      I agree that Krunic isn’t the right player for the n10 position, but on the other hand it was Krunic who assisted the goal for Giroud against Torino. He was the one in the right place. Many players were sloppy in that game and I don’t have the feeling that another player would have done much better in that game. The entire build up in attack was weak, not just Krunic. I also think he’s a substitute, but I’m not saying we will lose the game if he starts either.

    I agree with you about playing Tonali as no10 but disagree that Krunic shouldnt play. He has been so vital in attack and defence . He is an utility player so we need to respect him.

      Yeah Cruzio!!! Krunic has been performing great this few days he’s been playing. Daniel is even my concern- he’s not showing milan quality at all but hope he stays and develop better.
