GdS: Probable XIs for Lazio vs. Milan – one doubt remains to be resolved

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli seems to have settled on the team that will take to the field against Lazio tonight, but there is just one fitness doubt to resolve.

According to what is being reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (seen below) this morning, the one question mark that remains to be resolved is whether Theo Hernandez is fit enough to start at left-back given he took a knock on the foot during training.

The paper has him down as a 70% chance of starting, and if not then Davide Calabria will come in at right-back with Alessandro Florenzi switching flanks. Matteo Gabbia and Malick Thiaw complete the back four in front of Mike Maignan.

Yacine Adli and Ismael Bennacer are expected to keep their places in the double pivot with Ruben Loftus-Cheek playing in a more advanced role again.

Christian Pulisic and Rafael Leao will occupy the right and left wing positions respectively, with Olivier Giroud leading the line given that his alternative Luka Jovic will serve the second of a two-game suspension.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Thiaw, Gabbia, Hernandez; Bennacer, Adli; Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, Leao; Giroud.

Probable Lazio XI (4-3-3): Provedel; Lazzari, Gila, Romagnoli, Hysaj; Luis Alberto, Cataldi, Guendouzi; Felipe Anderson, Immobile, Zaccagni.

    1. Until he learns to pass, shoot, play defense or win the ball back – NO THANK YOU

      If he deserves a starting spot, surely you can send us the link of a 3-4 minute youtube clip of his highlights while at Milan. I mean, he’s a definite starter for you, right?

      You can’t. Because one doesn’t exist. At least not a highlight reel. He failed at AM and he’s doing poorly at DM now too.
