GdS: Probable XIs for Milan vs. Fiorentina – Pioli gets crucial duo back

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli will welcome back two vital players for the game against Fiorentina at San Siro on Sunday.

Milan will be hoping to put the disappointing midweek draw away against Cremonese behind them and they will do so with Theo Hernandez and Olivier Giroud back in the starting line-up after both were suspended for the 0-0.

According to this morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Ciprian Tatarusanu will be in goal with Pierre Kalulu, Simon Kjaer and Fikayo Tomori joining Theo in the defensive department. Sandro Tonali and Ismael Bennacer should remain as the double pivot.

In attack, Junior Messias and Brahim Diaz are expected to keep their places while Rafael Leao will return on the left wing and Giroud will be the centre-forward.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Kalulu, Kjaer, Tomori, Theo; Tonali, Bennacer; Messias, Diaz, Leao; Giroud.

Probable Fiorentina XI (4-2-3-1): Terracciano; Dodo, Milenkovic, Igor, Biraghi; Amrabat, Mandrake; Ikonè, Bonaventura, Kouamè; Jovic.
