AC Milan expect Sandro Tonali to show his quality during Sunday’s game against Roma as he is preferred over Soualiho Meite.
This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) writes that Meite will not be in the line-up to face Roma in the crucial game at the Olimpico tonight, as the Frenchman disappointed against Red Star on Thursday night.
Instead, Stefano Pioli will again rely on Tonali. It will be up to the former Brescia star to support Franck Kessié in the double pivot with Ismael Bennacer currently out injured, meaning it is another big opportunity for the Italian to demonstrate his growth.
The paper adds that it will be far from a ‘free shot’ for Tonali, as Milan expects a demonstration of quality from the 20-year-old, especially in such a big game and against an opponent with which the Rossoneri are in a battle to secure a spot in the top four.
