GdS: Probable XIs for Milan vs. Bologna – Pioli wants response up front

By Isak Möller -

Thanks to Inter’s loss against Lazio last night, AC Milan have a big opportunity this evening as they will take on Bologna in front of a sold-out San Siro. Getting back to winning ways would give them a huge boost. 

Stefano Pioli’s men didn’t necessarily play poorly against Atalanta but they failed to find the back of the net more than once. As such, the game finished 1-1 and the fans were left with a bitter-sweet taste in their mouths.

For tonight’s clash, as reported by Gazzetta Dello Sport (see photo below), Pioli is expected to make a couple of changes to the starting XI. Charles De Ketelaere will get the chance from start and he will be eager to show his qualities.

Up front, Olivier Giroud will replace Ante Rebic after fully recovering from his muscle fatigue. The Croatian also didn’t do enough against Atalanta and the decision thus makes a lot of sense.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Theo; Bennacer, Tonali; Messias (Saelemaekers), De Ketelaere, Leao; Giroud (Origi).

  1. Inter aren’t crap just because they lost against Lazio and Napoli aren’t amazing just because they scored 9 goals against crap opposition. I hope we win tonight but it’s a long season ahead. Even if we lose we’re not suddenly garbage – okay doom mongers?

  2. Trust in this AC Milan team .I certainly do .
    Why not especially if the man Oliver Giroud leads the line …Goals will come from this man ..He still has plenty to offer ..We have a great squad of players and
    a great management team ..can we win the scuddeto again this season of course we can .I said that we would win it last season especially when we signed Oliver Giroud..We have added some great players also .We can also have a great run in the champions league we are ready to compete .

    1. I don’t know why they don’t try Rebic as RW. During World Cup he was playing excellent on this position for the national team..
