GdS: Probable XIs for Monza vs. Milan – Thiaw trusted again

By Euan Burns -

Stefano Pioli is set to stick with his new formation that has brought victories against Torino and Tottenham Hotspur by trusting Malick Thiaw in the centre of the defence.

Those two victories have given Milan fans and the players some fresh hope that Champions League qualification is back on the cards and three points against Monza would lift the Rossoneri back into the top four.

Fikayo Tomori is expected to come back into the AC Milan defence in place of Simon Kjaer, whilst Junior Messias will be the right wingback.

Rade Krunic will hold his place in midfield as Ismael Bennacer is not yet fit enough to return from injury. Krunic will partner Sandro Tonali.

La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Olivier Giroud is to be given a rest and that means Divock Origi will be leading the line, supported by Rafael Leao and Brahim Diaz.

Monza predicted XI vs Milan (3-4-2-1): Di Gregorio; Marlon, Mari, Izzo; Birindelli, Pessina, Rovella, Ciurria; Mota, Caprari; Petagna.

Milan predicted XI vs Monza (3-4-2-1): Tatarusanu; Kalulu, Thiaw, Tomori; Messias, Krunic, Tonali, Hernandez; Diaz, Leao; Origi.

    1. Well he just scored a crucial goal last match, no reason to bench him. We should keep all of our player’s mentality motivated right? Not just applied to one single boy.

      1. I agree but we don’t know if he will be our player next season, he is not consistent and Pioli must rotate, he can’t expect CDK to step up if he don’t trust him at all.

        1. We need every point we can get considering on how our season goes. We pay our loanees to do the same exact job as the others. And Diaz, whether we want to admit or not, is the best we have in the position. If he goes next season, then we can try to field out CdK all we want.

  1. Well Diaz must play. He is our third scorer this year with 5 goals and he contribute to defence 5x more than any other attacking player.
    I saw in last summer that Diaz this year will be player in Milan who will make impact compared to many others.
