GdS: Probable XIs for Venezia vs. Milan – Bakayoko to start; three changes

By Isak Möller -

Following the 3-1 win against Roma, AC Milan will face Venezia away from home on Sunday afternoon. The Rossoneri players are in good spirits and will, of course, be looking to add yet another three points to their tally. 

It was indeed a very important win for Stefano Pioli’s men on Thursday evening, playing really well despite several key absences. According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, though, the manager will make a few changes to the starting XI.

The defence will remain the same, mostly due to the little depth, but in midfield Tiemoue Bakayoko will replace Rade Krunic. The Frenchman came off the bench against Roma and he did well, earning himself a starting spot for this game.

Further up the pitch, Rafael Leao will be back from start for the first time since he got injured. He did really well off the bench against Roma, sealing the deal with his goal, and the man who assisted him – Zlatan Ibrahimovic – will also start tomorrow.

  1. Come on man we need baklayoko in form especially as we are lacking bennacer and kessie for the rest of the month and if we cant start him againts venezia then who can we start him against ? Add to that he has only played a combined amount of minutes of 359 minutes according to transfermarkt over 11 serie matches + 3 cl games. Overall that shows he has only played combined minutes equating to 4 matches yet this season.
    Last time he was at the club the mob was out to get him at the very start and overall it turned out pretty well.
    When that is said its obviously also a demand that he turns up his perfomances with a few notches.

  2. As long as he plays with Sandro Tonali, am fine. Bakayoko needs more playing time to step up his game; and games like this against Spezia and Venezia will do him a lot of good
