MN: Milan’s probable XI for Juventus clash – doubts in attack to resolve

By Oliver Fisher -

Some early signs have begun to emerge from Milanello regarding the team that will take to the field against Juventus on Sunday night.

As MilanNews writes, Milan have the chance of securing a top four spot with a win, and Stefano Pioli is expected to field Mike Maignan in goal, with Davide Calabria and Theo Hernandez as the full-backs. Malick Thiaw is in a battle with Simon Kjaer to partner Fikayo Tomori.

The midfield double pivot will be composed of Rade Krunic and Sandro Tonali once again with Junior Messias having the advantage over Alexis Saelemaekers to start on the right and Rafael Leao on the left.

Brahim Diaz should be the attacking midfielder, though the hypothesis of using Tommaso Pobega there – as happened in the reverse game – cannot be ruled out. In this case Messias would start on the bench with Brahim on the right. Olivier Giroud will be the centre-forward.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Thiaw, Tomori, Theo; Tonali, Krunic; Messias, Diaz, Leao; Giroud.

Bench: Mirante, Tatarusanu, Ballo-Touré, Kalulu, Kjaer, Florenzi, Pobega, Gabbia, Adli, Bakayoko, Saelemaekers, De Ketelaere.

Battles: Saelemaekers-Messias-Pobega (30%-60%-10%); Thiaw-Kjaer (55%-45%).

Unavailable: Bennacer, Ibrahimovic.
Disqualified: None
One yellow from suspension: Kjaer, Pobega, Rebic, Kalulu.
