AC Milan concluded their preseason preparations at Milanello on Saturday evening with a 3-1 win over Lombardy neighbours Brescia.
The Rossoneri are ready for their first official match of the season, which will be Thursday’s Europa League second qualifying round match against Shamrock Rovers.
In the test with Brescia, midfielder Sandro Tonali was able to make his debut and nearly scored with a powerful right-foot shot from the edge of the box. It means we could see him in competitive action in Dublin.
Another positive is that without Zlatan Ibrahimovic – who miss due to a bruise on his right leg – Pioli chose to trust Lorenzo Colombo, who returned the coach’s confidence by scoring his third consecutive goal.
Finally, the game was yet another solid attacking performance by the Rossoneri, who scored 16 times across their four preseason games.
