GdS: Giroud to make ninth consecutive start for Milan against Bologna

By Mitchell Wilks -

Olivier Giroud is set to lead the line for Milan against Bologna, cementing his place in the side as the starting striker, according to a report.

Initially struggling for consistent minutes with fitness niggles upon signing, Giroud has become a consistent figure for Milan this season, and has proven his worth with goals.

Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) report that Giroud is set to make a ninth consecutive start for Stefano Pioli in Monday evening’s clash with Bologna, keeping Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the bench once more.

The veteran Frenchman has proven a more consistent figure for Pioli with Ibrahimovic struggling to maintain fitness throughout the season.

35-year-old Giroud reported for international duties with France over the break and scored in both games, keeping him in form for Milan’s crucial final run-in for the Scudetto.

Managing 11 goals in all competitions so far, his influence is key in pushing for the title.

  1. The more I see, the more I feel like we stole quality out from under Chelsea’s nose again. Can he make amazing dribbling runs like Leao? Not always. Does he have the gravitas of Ibra on the pitch? Sometimes. But good grief, his positioning is usually spot on or very threatening to the opposing defense, I’ve rarely noticed him to be behind in his anticipation of play and he can POACH like a monster.
