MN: Milan’s probable XI for Monza encounter – seven changes from Verona win

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan will take on Monza tomorrow evening and they will be looking to build on their positive trend in the league, currently on three consecutive wins. Stefano Pioli will shake things up with seven XI changes, a report claims. 

The Rossoneri claimed three hard-fought points away at Verona last weekend and also got some extra rest this week, as there was no mid-week clash. Tomorrow evening they will be back in action, taking on Monza.

As per MilanNews, Pioli will make a total of seven changes to the XI as several players will be rested. At the back, Sergino Dest and Simon Kjaer will play from the first minute, with Pierre Kalulu and Matteo Gabbia rested.

The midfield will consist of Ismael Bennacer and Tommaso Pobega, who both came off the bench against Verona. Junior Messias has recovered from his injury and will start on the right, while both Ante Rebic and Divock Origi will play from the first minute as well.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Dest, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez; Bennacer, Pobega; Messias, Diaz, Rebic; Origi.

          1. Is he, at this point of his career, a better option than Gabbia? Or Thiaw?
            It may be harsh to say but the fact is that Milan defense got so much better last year after he was sidelined because of injury..
            Play the younger guys.
            What does Salzburg have up front? Okafor and Sesko. A young, very mobile and fast forwards. Kjaer would be exposed. Okafor destroyed Kalulu, who is a great young and athletic defender in the first game, imagine what he is going to do to old and slow Kjaer.

  1. Man i hope this rotation do well cause if Milan draw or even lost against Monza then i’m gonna blame all you genius in here who asked Pioli to rotate.

  2. Lol Okafor, just be happy that there is no longer szobo, adeyemi, aaronsen, daka. What a luck that we havent got a Salzburg from previous years
