GdS: Probable XIs for Bologna vs. Milan – Pioli settles on his choices

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is expected to entrust captain Davide Calabria in the right-back role for tonight’s game against Bologna, a report claims. 

There had been doubts about whether Calabria would come back into the starting line-up given he missed some time in preseason due to a muscle problem, and reports a couple of days ago had Pierre Kalulu in the XI.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (seen below), the back four will be Calabria, Malick Thiaw, Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez ahead of Mike Maignan, with Rade Krunic at the base of a midfield three completed by Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tijjani Reijnders.

Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud remain two constants of the attacking department from last season, with Christian Pulisic tipped to start on the right. Samuel Chukwueze and Noah Okafor are therefore ready to come off the bench.

Probable Milan XI (4-3-3): Maignan; Calabria, Thiaw, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Loftus-Cheek, Krunic, Reijnders; Pulisic, Giroud, Leao.

Probable Bologna XI (4-2-3-1): Skorupski; Posch, Beukema, Lucumi, Lykogiannis; Aebischer, Dominguez; Ndoye, Ferguson, Moro; Zirkzee.

  1. He is going to looze the game or hardly winDo not watch a man who is Destroying our best Efforts and Goals infront of us.
    Pioli is Envious , Sturbon and dull to the success of acmilan.
    How can he make chekueze on the bench because of bad line upps and his wants beyond knowledge,Strategy amd Tactics
    Krunic has not market what about the Naigeriian
    Both Puslic,Chekueza,leao and Okafur(Giroid)
    Can be line up at one time even 4:3:3.

  2. This is a great line up ,and one that will win the match tonight. I just want some of you watch the match ..You could well so a few goals from us ,
    including from that man ,the brilliant technical wonder man ..The man’s name yes it’s Olivier Giroud.
    Pioli is a great manager …you all seem to forget our achievements in the last two seasons .
    So it’s AC Milan for me ..

  3. I think he switch to the normal 4231with pulisic playing behind the striker and leao and chucky on the wings.that my opinion.FORZA MILAN.

  4. You know, this is the season Milan should line up in a 4-2-3-1. But When he should play 4-3-3 , he plays 4-2-3-1. When he should play 4-2-3-1, ,he plays 4-3-3. Pioli Pioli Pioli…. Sigh!
