CorSport: Pioli considers fielding a mobile and unpredictable attack against Inter

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is beginning to think of his team selection ahead of the derby next weekend, with some decisions to make in particular regarding the attack.

This morning’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews) reports that Pioli is already thinking about the line-up to use against Inter in what is a crucial game for the Rossoneri’s Scudetto hopes, with particular attention being paid to the forwards.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will try to recover from tendon inflammation, but in the last few days he has only carried out therapy and has trained alone. If the Swede does not recover in time for the game, Pioli could opt for the obvious choice of picking Olivier Giroud instead.

However, there could also be a third solution: Ante Rebic could be deployed in the role of striker in order to add a bit more fluidity to the attacking department. With the Croatian on the pitch supported by Leao, Diaz and Saelemaekers, Milan’s attack would once again be mobile and unpredictable.

  1. hey Stefono, how about thinking a little more outside the box and putting Rebic in Diaz’s spot, not a fan of Kessie right now but another option, he has way more physical presense than Diaz.

    1. Rebić played that position at Eintracht, I am not sure why he never played here. It was Rebić and Jović – Haller in front of them.

  2. Giroud is the man to lead the line ,I have no doubt about that ,and yes he needs to start from the offset .
    He is now back to fitness ,and very sharp in front of goal …He holds the ball up so well ,and has great physical strength ,,yes he needs the right service ..make no mistake Giroud is back ,goals will come .
    I would like to see Rebec alongside him ..This is a huge game and I believe that we will win it .

  3. thanks ,gonna see if I can find his stats from his time there, if you notice lately when Ibra is on the pitch that he often backs off goal and almost is playing the 10,especially when Theo advances ball to Leao….draws the defenders out a little to give space for Leao to operate
