MN: Key battles return for Milan and Pioli can finally make ‘difficult’ decisions

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan will take on Fiorentina away from home after the international break and preparations are underway at Milanello. For the first time in a long while, Stefano Pioli will have several key battles to consider. 

As underlined by MilanNews, the positive condition of Rafael Leao, Ante Rebic, Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic means the attacking competition is fierce. That hasn’t been the case at the start of this season due to several injuries.

In other words, Pioli will finally be able to make difficult decisions, which in general is a sign of the team’s positive situation. Against Fiorentina, it’s reasonable to assume that Rebic has a good chance of starting, seeing as Leao has played a lot lately. The latter also took part in international duty.

Up front, Giroud has had time to focus on the upcoming game at Milanello, while Ibrahimovic featured in both games for Sweden. Although the decisions for Saturday might be slightly obvious, therefore, the report highlights the importance of having them all fit for the future (and not just one game). In fact, it will be a huge advantage.
