AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is expected to rotate some players in the next two league games given the hectic nature of the fixture schedule.
After starting the season with games against Bologna, Torino, Roma, Inter and Newcastle United, Milan have two simpler games on paper against Verona (Saturday at 3pm) and Cagliari (Wednesday 27th at 6:30pm).
According to MilanNews, Pioli could rest both Olivier Giroud and Rafa Leao alternately during the two games, meaning that one would start one game on the bench while the other plays, and then they would flip.
Both have played in all five of Milan’s official matches up to this point from the first minute and with the calendar getting thicker they need to get their breath back.
It will also be an opportunity to give more playing time to those who have played less, especially the new signings Noah Okafor and Luka Jovic, who have only played fragments of games off the bench so far.
