GdS: Probable XIs for Lecce vs. Milan – how Pioli will deal with Tonali’s absence

By Oliver Fisher -

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

    1. Who can we play that would be any upgrade?
      Messias, cdk, dest? We have no depth

      Maybe we can sue Brugges for selling us a footballer and sending us a bank clerk😂

    1. same was said for cutrone, same was said for petagna. Time will tell but, ita has not produced a complete striker in a long while

      1. This guy has always been a bigger talent than those 2. Also watch his goals, he has huge talent. Now he seems to be really hitting his stride in Serie A too.

        Anyway even if he isn’t world class we are going to need him next season given our current attacking options.
        Giroud 36
        Ibra 40
        Origi, a totally useless injury prone lummox

        1. might as well give lazetic a proper chance since they paid 5M for him. But yeah Colombo should get one as well imao, tho speaking about who has a bigger talent is naive.. you need a lot more goin on than talent to be a player for a big club like Milan

  1. This is a good starting eleven …
    We will win against lecce …don’t start panicking fans .
    We are still in the scuddeto race ..Olivier Giroud will start scoring goals again ..We are wounded ,but not out …We will come back ..we won the scuddeto last season against all the odds ,just tell me why we can win it again ..I think juventus will win against Napoli tonight ..
    The gap will be closer …We need to win our next three games at least .We can do that ..confidence will come back …Why we must do is be to frantic ,and shooting outside the area all the time ..We need to get some decent crosses in ,do that an Olivier will deliver .
    Goals will also come from rafeol leao ..his last two games have not been good ,but of course is is a class player but needs to start to relax on the ball ,and yes of course takes players on ,but deliver that final ball instead of always trying to get a shot in …
    I am positive and we will come good again ..
    We have been very unlucky with so many injuries..
    It makes it difficult to rotate the squad …,but some are now coming back to fitness .
    So can we win the scudetto again this season ,of course we can ..We must tighten up defence first ,as first line of attack is to have a good defence .
    So come on Olivier it’s time to deliver,I am a great fan of yours ..

  2. Bez Magniana i sa Salemakersom i Mesiasom kao i De Katelate , Origi , Rebić koji nisu za ništa bogami neznam da se možemo borit za bilo što !! Treba bit objektivan a to znači da ako se uspjemo plasirat za ligu prvaka dogodine učinili smo ogroman uspjeh !!!
