GdS: Pioli faces potential key decision for Sassuolo clash – Giroud or Rebic up front

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan are preparing for their final game of the season and the enthusiasm is through the roof, just one point from clinching the Scudetto. Stefano Pioli has a few decisions to make for the starting XI, though. 

The manager has opted for consistency in the last few weeks and it seems it could be the same XI as we saw against Atalanta. However, reports have emerged with regards to the centre-forward position, with Ante Rebic in the running.

Milan’s No.12 hasn’t played loads this season due to injuries but he has shown glimpses of his quality lately. As per Gazzetta Dello Sport, therefore, Pioli is considering playing him up front after testing him in that role during yesterday’s training.

Olivier Giroud remains the favourite but the Frenchman’s contribution has been minimal in the last few games. Pioli is faced with a decision that potentially could be key for the clash, in other words, and it remains to be seen what he will decide.

  1. Giroud is the man ,make no mistake about that .
    This is a top match ,and Giroud should be the choice ..
    I have always believed in him ,and that the signing would bring the scuddeto to AC Milan ,and I believe we will …This Ac Milan is very exciting to watch ,and I believe experience of zlatan and Olivier Giroud has made a big difference..

    1. This game is not “too big” for either Olivier or Ibra, Giroud’s production has fallen off due to the fact that Milan’s strategy (predictable) up until a month or so ago was to service the box with/for headers, he was marked by at least two on set pieces and service at narrow angles. Now with goals scored with our feet the last couple of months the headers will be open again, Key is pushing the ball up, counter attacking, centrally as Theo did in last game. This will open up the wings for header service and or one on ones with Leao. Forza Milano…….very exciting to watch ? I have no fingernails left
