GdS: Probable XIs for Sassuolo vs. Milan – Pioli to keep trust after big recent wins

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan stand on the brink of doing something that not many thought was possible at the start of the season: one point against Sassuolo wins them the league title.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) this morning are reporting that head coach Stefano Pioli seems willing to keep his trust in the same starting line-up from the last two league games against Hellas Verona and Atalanta.

Mike Maignan should be in goal again with Davide Calabria, Pierre Kalulu, Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez as the back four ahead of him. Then, a double pivot of Sandro Tonali and Franck Kessie should be chosen again, with Ismael Bennacer ready for an impact as a substitute.

Alexis Saelemaekers should be the man who starts on the right wing with Rafael Leao on the opposite flank, leaving Rade Krunic as the playmaker behind the centre-forward Olivier Giroud.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Hernandez; Kessie, Tonali; Saelemaekers, Krunic, Leao; Giroud.

Probable Sassuolo XI (4-2-3-1): Consigli; Muldur, Chiriches, Ferrari, Kyriakopoulos; Lopez, Frattesi; Berardi, Raspadori, Traore; Scamacca.
