MN: Probable Milan XI for Sassuolo encounter – Giroud the favourite to start

By Isak Möller -

Olivier Giroud is expected to keep his spot in the starting XI tomorrow, as AC Milan will take on Sassuolo in the final round of Serie A. In fact, Stefano Pioli will confirm the usual eleven, a report claims. 

The Rossoneri need just one point from the game to clinch their first Scudetto in eleven years, which would be quite the achievement given the squad. They have been underestimated all season and now the critics could be properly silenced.

According to MilanNews, Pioli will field the same eleven we saw against Atalanta last time out. In other words, consistency is key for the manager and that means Giroud will keep his spot, despite rumours suggesting Ante Rebic could start.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Tonali, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Krunic, Leao; Giroud.

Kick-off is scheduled for 18:00 CEST and there will be 18k Milan fans at Mapei Stadium, which is very impressive given that its total capacity is 21.5k. It will almost feel like a home game, therefore.
