MN: Pioli has two possible line-ups in mind for Atalanta – Leao could return

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli has one selection dilemma to try and resolve before Sunday’s crucial game against Atalanta, a report claims.

MilanNews writes that today at Milanello in view of Sunday’s match in Bergamo the team underwent some technical exercises.  The only doubt at the moment regarding Pioli’s starting XI concerns the position of Brahim Diaz, who is in fact in a battle with Rafael Leao.

If confirmed, the Spanish playmaker would play as the centre-forward with Hakan Calhanoglu on the left wing. If, on the other hand, Leao were to prevail over his team-mate, he would go on the wing with Calhanoglu shifting back to the No.10 position behind Ante Rebic.

The Croatian will of course be the striker again because Zlatan Ibrahimovic is out with a knee injury, but it appears that the rest of the starting XI will be first choice and has been decided upon.

  1. The coach can start Leao on the right wing and bench Aleixs who can’t score goals , we need players can score goals, Leao can always give nice cross or score .
