More news continues to filter on the likely startling line-up that Stefano Pioli will field on the eve of AC Milan’s Champions League group stage game against Dinamo Zagreb.
Pioli will have his hands pretty much tied in terms of the attacking department due to the fact that Divock Origi and Ante Rebic are both out injured while Yacine Adli was not named in the squad list.
According to the latest news from MilanNews, Milan should field what is now the first choice defence of Davide Calabria, Pierre Kalulu, Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez in front of Mike Maignan.
Rather unsurprisingly they will be shielded by the double pivot of Sandro Tonali and Ismael Bennacer. Alexis Saelemaekers and Rafael Leao should keep their place on the flanks, with the Belgian having netted the equaliser in Salzburg last week.
There were rumours about Brahim Diaz starting but Charles De Ketelaere is tipped to get the nod to be the playmaker behind Olivier Giroud, who will work overtime due to the aforementioned absences.
Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Theo; Tonali, Bennacer; Saelemaekers, De Ketelaere, Leao; Giroud.
