AC Milan are set to face Modena in their second friendly of the summer, and Stefano Pioli has named his starting line-up.
Milan kicked off their 2021 summer preseason campaign with a 6-0 win over Pro Sesto on Saturday, with Ismael Bennacer, Rafael Leao, Samu Castillejo, an own-goal and a Milos Kerkez brace proving too much for the Serie C side.
Milan and Modena will take the field for a friendly today at Milanello at 17:00 CEST. The match will be visible on the official channels of the Rossoneri – including the app – and on Sky Sport.
Pioli has named the starting XI that he will use for the game. with Tatarusanu in goal protected by a back four of Matteo Gabbia, Fikayo Tomori, Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez. Pioli has had to make virtue of necessity with no right-backs available (Calabria is recovering from surgery and Kalulu is at the Olympics) while Maignan is on his post-Euros holiday.
Bennacer and Tonali are the double pivot in midfield with Kessie at the Olympics too, while Saelemaekers, Brahim Diaz and Rade Krunic are the trident behind Rafael Leao.
