Given the various injuries and Coronavirus cases that the Milan squad have battled all season, several fringe players have found plenty of opportunities.
As MilanNews writes, it will be the suspension of Davide Calabria that will give the young Diogo Dalot a chance against Spezia. The Portuguese full-back has been inconsistent so far this season, showing flashes of his potential but often following that up with disappointing displayers.
Dalot is not a very fast player but he has a good technical quality that allows him to cross and pass well. His physical build means that in many ways he is a juxtaposition of most modern full-backs, but this can without a doubt be a benefit.
Dalot arrived from Manchester United on a dry loan meaning there is no option or obligation to buy included in the deal, so a negotiation will be needed if Milan want to keep him beyond June.
The player has quality and can carve out important playing time between now and the end of the season, and it will be on the 21-year-old to demonstrate his readiness and to convince Milan to redeem him.
