AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is expected to make changes in attack and welcome back some injured players for the game against Fiorentina tomorrow.
According to today’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (as seen below), Mike Maignan should make his second start since returning from injury with Pierre Kalulu, Malick Thiaw and Fikayo Tomori in the three-man defence ahead of him.
The midfield line should consist of Davide Calabria as the right wing-back as he returns from a hip problem, with Theo Hernandez on the opposite flank either side of a double pivot that sees Ismael Bennacer return alongside Sandro Tonali after a few weeks out.
Rafael Leao’s suspension gives a chance for Ante Rebic on the left of the attacking trident, with Charles De Ketelaere expected on the other side of Olivier Giroud meaning Brahim Diaz will get a rest.
Probable Fiorentina XI (4-3-3): Terracciano; Dodo, Martinez Quarta, Igor, Biraghi; Bonaventura, Amrabat, Barak; Gonzalez, Cabral, Kouame
Probable Milan XI (3-4-2-1): Maignan; Kalulu, Kjaer, Thiaw; Messias, Tonali, Krunic, Hernandez; Diaz, Rebic; Giroud.
Calabria back… God help us 🤲
+ CDK, we are in a big sh*t.
The black hole is back … looks like the clean sheet mini run is over
For the love of God please give Giroud a rest especially since we have UCL next week. Zlatan and Origi should be able to shoulder the load responsibility against Fiorentina.
