GdS: Probable starting XIs for Hellas Verona vs. Milan – Leao and Rebic switch; Romagnoli keeps spot

By Oliver Fisher -

Alessio Romagnoli is set to keep his place in the starting line-up for Sunday’s game against Hellas Verona, according to a report.

Milan boss Stefano Pioli will be without Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Hakan Calhanoglu for the trip to the MarcAntonio Bentegodi, while Ismael Bennacer and Mario Mandzukic will also miss out as they continue to recover from muscle injuries.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that a back four of Davide Calabria (back in for Pierre Kalulu), Simon Kjaer, Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez will be in front of Gianluigi Donnarumma, with Tomori on the bench.

Sandro Tonali and Franck Kessie will be the double pivot, with Samu Castillejo, Rade Krunic and Rafael Leao acting behind the centre-forward Ante Rebic in what represents a switch of position between the Portuguese and the Croatian.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Calabria, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Kessie, Tonali; Castillejo, Krunic, Leao; Rebic.

    Pioli’s days are numbered. The Romagnoli/Kjaer paring is seriously flawed..

    Why they place castillejo in starting xi again ??? This is showing that pioli is mediocre coach. Milan need point not his bad idea

    Like many fans, i also questioned why playing some players who clearly cant doing anything, why just instead play a young player such as maybe maldini or others from primavera like olzer and roback, yes its a gamble but it worth a try than doing same old things every game which the result is always like s**t. Mr pioli are hear me? Lol
