AC Milan face a huge point in their season on Tuesday night as they face Lazio in the capital, and Stefano Pioli will be able to call upon one of his most trusted performers.
MilanNews write that Rade Krunic is back from injury and will therefore be fit for the away match in the capital, while Pioli thinks about some changes to his tactical plans. The Bosnian midfielder was out for the month of December due to a muscle problem and made his return to training today.
It’s unlikely that Krunic will be able to start from the first minute on Tuesday evening against the Aquile given he has not played a competitive game since November, but he will certainly give one more tactical solution to Pioli given he can play both as Bennacer and Tonali’s deputy and as a more physical presence for the No.10 role.
Krunic’s recovery, combined with the difficulties shown by the Rossoneri in terms of tactical balance on the pitch, are making Pioli think about a change in system. In 2023 it has been either Brahim Diaz or Charles De Ketelaere behind Olivier Giroud who perhaps have more technical quality but are more lightweight.
Krunic could be put in that position just as he has been before, and just as Franck Kessie was last season too, but first of all it is most important for the former Empoli man to get back to 100%.
