MN: Leao and Rebic set to start vs. Red Star – latest on Ibra, Mandzukic, Bennacer and Brahim

By Oliver Fisher -

Some news has arrived from Milanello regarding the condition of four players as well as the possible choices ahead of Thursday’s game.

With Sunday’s derby defeat now in the rear view mirror, Milan must now focus on ensuring they avoid another damaging defeat on Thursday night at San Siro as they host Red Star in the second leg of their Europa League Round of 32 clash, with the two teams having draw 2-2 in Belgrade last week.

According to what is being reported by MilanNews, Mario Mandzukic and Ismael Bennacer trained separately from the rest of the team suggesting they will not play a part against the Serbian outfit.

It is a different discussion for Brahim Diaz and Zlatan Ibrahimovic who trained regularly on the pitch with their team-mates. The tactical preparation will take place tomorrow, but Rafael Leao and Ante Rebic could very well be starters against Red Star, with the Portuguese as the centre-forward.
