GdS: Probable XIs for Atalanta vs. Milan – Kjaer returns; star duo misses out for hosts

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan will take on Atalanta this Sunday and with Simon Kjaer back in action, the Rossoneri have been handed a nice boost. The Bergamo side, on the other hand, will be without two key players. 

Kjaer has struggled with a back injury recently but will partner up with Fikayo Tomori in the heart of the defence tomorrow. Franck Kessie will get another chance (after the red card) as he will start next to Sandro Tonali. It’s understandable, given that Ismael Bennacer is probably exhausted.

Other than that, the Rossoneri XI is exactly what you would expect. Junior Messias will be on the bench for the first time, which is certainly a boost for Stefano Pioli who has been fighting with a tiny squad recently.

Meanwhile, Atalanta will be without their wing-backs Hans Hateboer and Robin Gosens. They are key players for the team and their absence will be felt. It should be a very interesting game between two good sides.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez; Tonali, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leao; Rebic.

Probable Atalanta XI (3-4-1-2): Musso; Djimsiti, Demiral, Palomino; Zappacosta, De Roon, Freuler, Maehle; Pessina; Malinovskyi, Zapata.

    1. Use your head. Until Krunic and Bakayoko get back and you have a full squad, then you can limit Kessie playing. As for now, he must play, except you want to ruin Tonali and Bennacer. They’re human beings, not machines.
