GdS: Probable XIs for Sassuolo vs. Milan – Consistency is key for Pioli

By Isak Möller -

A huge clash awaits AC Milan tomorrow as they will take on Sassuolo away from home, in need of one point to clinch the Scudetto. It’s the final game of the season, meaning it’s do or die for Stefano Pioli’s men. 

The manager has done a tremendous job since he arrived in a chaotic situation back in 2019 and the reward is now very close. Inter are two points behind and that means Milan need just one point, provided that the Nerazzurri win against Sampdoria.

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport (see photo below), Pioli isn’t expected to make any changes to the XI we saw against Atalanta last time out. Rade Krunic will keep his spot in the attacking trio and the same goes for Alexis Saelemaekers.

Ismael Bennacer and Junior Messias are still in the running but the others are favourites as things stand. Some rumours have also suggested that Ante Rebic could replace Olivier Giroud, but there haven’t been enough confirmations on that yet.

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