MN: Probable Milan XI for Juventus clash – only one dilemma for Pioli as Theo returns

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will have yet another crucial game to face with multiple selection problems when they welcome Juventus to San Siro on Wednesday night.

The Rossoneri know that with a win they will stay top of the Serie A table and extend the gap to Juve to 13 points, but a slip up could see them surrender first place to city rivals Inter.

According to MilanNews, there shouldn’t be any big selection surprises in terms of the starting XI as Stefano Pioli will have to make rather forced choices, especially in the midfield and attacking department.

The defence almost picks itself as Donnarumma, Calabria, Kjaer, Romagnoli will be joined by the returning Theo Hernandez. In front of the rear guard will be a double pivot of Kessie and Krunic, with Tonali suspended, while behind the centre-forward Leao the only battle will be that between Castillejo and Brahim Diaz, with Calhanoglu and Rebic sure of a place.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Calabria, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Kessie, Krunic; Diaz/Castillejo; Calhanoglu, Rebic; Leao.

        Tout à fait d’accord bro, ce Krunic ne m’a jamais convaincu depuis qu’il est au Milan d’ailleurs c’est encore lui qui occasionne le pénalty sifflé contre nous Dimanche,et dans le jeu pas vraiment de plus-value. Je préfèrerais mille fois Kalulu comme sentinelle avec Kessié

      I totally agree

    4. Adrian says:

      Unfortunate if you put a defender in middle it shows that you no longer trust Krunic as part of the team.

  2. OLU Milan says:

    I see Kalulu as a viable option than krunic, he has great vision and passing and the ability to hold on the ball well, he is so talented, I believe we have attackers to get the win, we have been the best in big matches in serie A recently, Milan will win, forza milan
