MN: Milan’s probable XI for SPAL clash – Calabria, Paqueta to start as one doubt remains

By Isak Möller -

After the success against Roma, the first big match won by Milan this season, the Rossoneri are now getting ready to take on SPAL away from home. Given the upcoming schedule, it will be crucial to grab all three points. 

Stefano Pioli’s men will face Lazio, Juventus and Napoli after tomorrow’s game and the manager is thus considering some changes. According to MilanNews.it, he could make as many as three changes to the starting eleven.

Simon Kjaer is expected to keep his spot in the back four, just like Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez, but Andrea Conti could be given some rest. Davide Calabria is ready to replace him and it would be his first league appearance since the resumption.

Further up the pitch, Lucas Paqueta will replace Jack Bonaventura as the latter has been very disappointing in the last few games. Hakan Calhanoglu will remain on the left flank but Samu Castillejo could be benched in favour of Alexis Saelemaekers.

Milan (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Calabria (Conti), Kjaer, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Kessie, Bennacer; Castillejo (Saelemaekers), Paquetà, Calhanoglu; Rebic.
