MN: Probable Milan XI to face Atalanta – one selection dilemma for Pioli to resolve

By Oliver Fisher -

More team news is continuing to filter from Milanello ahead of Sunday’s game against Atalanta in Bergamo, according to a report.

As MilanNews writes, Milan are continuing to prepare for the decisive match against Atalanta on Sunday evening and head coach Stefano Pioli should keep a large part of the starting XI that took the field against Cagliari the same.

That would mean that Gianluigi Donnarumma would be protected by a back four of Davide Calabria, Simon Kjaer, Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez with Ismael Bennacer and Franck Kessie the double pivot. At the moment, the only doubt concerns the battke between Brahim Diaz and Rafael Leao. If the former starts, Hakan Calhanoglu would play on the left wing, whereas he would be the No.10 and Leao would be on the left if Pioli went with the Portuguese.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): G. Donnarumma; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Theo; Bennacer, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Leao/Brahim; Rebic.

  1. I didn’t see a great match in today’s game. The situation is not convenient. It was not right to pick up the diaz. calliarir’s player is stronger and taller than milan player in height. It was understood in the first half that there would be no success with head or cross. samu missed very badly. He got Clear head but he ruined the ball with his foot. It’s hard. Anyway, there is no other option but to win. through ball is not given. It was necessary to enter the Dbox by dribbling. I would ask Peoli to play two midfielders down a bit while playing against Atalanta. Fast and fast counter attak to go.
    Theo was dull today. Diaz must play. Bennecer can pass through ball tremendiouly. Rebech will play at striker. Dalot and Salesmaker will play one line. Theo and Leao will play in the left line. If they are not good, hauge is the best choice. Diaz will be good as attaking midfielder. If Ebra is fit, victory is possible. Tomorri will occasionally rise to the top to create a gap. Left and right wing will not be able to rise to the top, atalanta’ strikers are speedy and skillfull so the defense must be organized. If you can beat Juv, you can beat Atalanta. As a sapoter i wish Milan will play in the champion league.
