MN: Pioli faces midfield dilemma ahead of Real Madrid friendly – the options

By Nikita Fesyukov -

AC Milan will face Real Madrid tomorrow in a friendly match in Austria, with the Rossoneri continuing preparation for the start of the new season. And in the meantime, coach Stefano Pioli is considering who to field tomorrow in Klagenfurt.

The manager will have to deal without his two pillars of the midfield department – Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer, as the later is still in isolation after being diagnosed with Covid-19 and the Ivorian has not yet returned to Milanello after featuring at the Olympics.

And the midfield department is exactly the main dilemma for Pioli ahead of tomorrow’s clash against Carlo Ancelotti’s men.

As reported by, Sandro Tonali is set to start from the beginning, as he has always been deployed during the pre-season tour.

The question mark, however, is how will accompany the former Brescia man in the double pivot. At the moment, as per the report, Pioli is considering whether to confirm Tommaso Pobega or field Rade Krunic.
