GdS: Precited XIs for Milan vs. Salernitana – Pioli experiments with Florenzi in midfield

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will take to the field for the final time in the 2023-24 season tonight when they host an already relegated Salernitana side, and it will be a night of farewells.

It will be a night of emotions at San Siro, as Olivier Giroud and Simon Kjaer will leave when their contracts expire meaning they will get a great send-off, while Pioli’s exit was also confirmed on Friday

According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (seen below), Pioli is expected to give Antonio Mirante a farewell appearance in goal, with Davide Calabria, Fikayo Tomori, Matteo Gabbia and Theo Hernandez the back four in front of him.

Alessandro Florenzi is now expected to play in a midfield double pivot, a position that he has often taken up during games coming in from the right, with Tijjani Reijnders next to him.

That frees Ismael Bennacer up to play a slightly more advanced role, flanked by Christian Pulisic on the right wing, Rafael Leao on the left and Olivier Giroud leading the line in his final appearance.

Predicted Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Mirante; Calabria, Tomori, Gabbia, Theo Hernandez; Florenzi, Reijnders; Pulisic, Bennacer, Leao; Giroud.

Predicted Salernitana XI (3-4-2-1): Fiorillo; Pierozzi, Pasalidis, Pellegrino; Sambia, Coulibaly, Maggiore, Zanoli; Candreva, Kastanos; Tchaouna.

  1. Very wierd to put Florenzi in the middle. But ok. He’s good with his feet. Maybe he will migrate out right from time to time also. But the we will lose coherence in the middle. Another of Piolis great ideas 🥳

    1. Farewell game for him, Giroud, and potentially Kjaer. The game also means nothing in relation to our position in the league, so it’s fitting.

  2. hahaha quintessential Pioli…. Last game of the season, last game in charge of the club and he is STILL experimenting. #conviction

  3. Why starting three fullbacks? Well at least it’s his last game to manage. Let him display all of his trademarks freely. Won’t hurt much
