AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is set to undo the changes he made to the starting line-up for the midweek defeat against Torino as the Rossoneri return to league action with a trip to Lecce.
According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (as seen below), Milan should line up with Ciprian Tatarusanu in goal and a back four of Davide Calabria, Pierre Kalulu, Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez ahead of him.
Sandro Tonali is suspended after accumulating too many yellow cards and Tommaso Pobega should therefore take his spot, accompanying Ismael Bennacer – fresh from a renewal until 2027 – in the double pivot.
In attack Alexis Saelemaekers and Rafael Leao should be the right and left winger respectively, with Brahim Diaz playing in the No.10 role behind the centre-forward Olivier Giroud.
Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Theo; Pobega, Bennacer; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leao; Giroud.
Probable Lecce XI (4-3-3): Falcone; Gendrey, Baschirotto, Umtiti, Gallo; Blin, Hjulmand, Gonzalez; Strefezza, Colombo, Di Francesco
