MN: Pioli to entrust Brahim Diaz again – he is ready for a ‘derby’ against Atletico Madrid

By Oliver Fisher -

It will be a memorable game tonight for all the AC Milan players against Atletico Madrid, but in particular for playmaker Brahim Diaz.

It will be a huge match at San Siro, one that will mark the return of the Champions League to the stadium stadium after seven long years, but it will be a complicated game against an Atletico side that arrive as favorites and have not only great quality in their squad but also experience of how to win in this competition.

There will be several players missing for Milan, as MilanNews reports. Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not recover, Junior Messias is not at 100%, Rade Krunic and Tiemoue Bakayoko will miss the game, while Simon Kjaer and Alessandro Florenzi should be on the bench at most.

There will be great responsibility on the shoulders of Brahim Diaz too, as the Spaniard is ready to face a much-felt “derby” against the rivals of his parent club Real Madrid.
