AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli is unlikely to risk Rafael Leao from the start against Atletico Madrid tonight, according to a report.
This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport reports the Milan team that Pioli should field tonight in the Spanish capital and it starts with Ciprian Tatarusanu in goal, protected by a back four of Pierre Kalulu, Simon Kjaer, Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez.
The midfield double pivot should be Sandro Tonali and Franck Kessie again just as it was on Saturday night, with Alexis Saelemaekers and Brahim Diaz occupying the right and left wing spots. Rafael Leao is not in the best condition, so Rade Krunic is likely to be the playmaker behind Olivier Giroud.
Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Kalulu, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Tonali, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Brahim Diaz, Rafael Leao; Giroud.
Probable Atletico Madrid XI (3-5-2): Oblak; Savic, Gimenez, Hermoso; Llorente, De Paul, Koke, Lemar, Carrasco; Suarez, Griezmann.
