AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli has some ideas about the starting line-up that will take to the field to face Hellas Verona in Sunday’s crucial game, a report claims.
According to what is being reported by this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Pioli should field an unchanged defence of Davide Calabria, Pierre Kalulu, Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez in front of Mike Maignan.
Sandro Tonali and Ismael Bennacer should return to being partners in the double pivot with Franck Kessie playing as the attacking midfielder, meaning Brahim Diaz should start from the bench again.
Junior Messias has a 60% chance of starting as the right winger over Alexis Saelemaekers, with Rafael Leao on the left wing completing the trident behind striker Olivier Giroud.
Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Tonali, Bennacer; Messias, Kessie, Leao; Giroud.
Probable Verona XI (3-4-2-1): Montipò; Casale, Gunter, Ceccherini; Faraoni, Tameze, Ilic, Lazovic; Barak, Caprari; Simeone.
