MN: Probable Milan XI to face Porto – choices straightforward due to selection issues

By Oliver Fisher -

Some team news has emerged ahead of Tuesday night’s crucial Champions League game against Porto in Portugal.

MilanNews reports how head coach Stefano Pioli does not have much choice due to the various selection problems he is facing and that is why it is already clear what kind of a team he will field against the Dragao.

It will be the usual 4-2-3-1 formation with Ciprian Tatarusanu in goal, with Pierre Kalulu on the right side of the defence and Davide Calabria on the left, with Fikayo Tomori and Simon Kjaer in the middle.

Sandro Tonali and Ismael Bennacer will be the double pivot with Alexis Saelemaekers on the right wing, Leao on the left wing and Rade Krunic as the playmaker. Ante Rebic in all likelihood will miss the game, so Olivier Giroud will be up front with Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the bench.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Kalulu, Kjaer, Tomori, Calabria; Tonali, Bennacer; Saelemaekers, Krunic, Leao; Giroud.

    Ballo Toure should continue at LB…last thing we want is Calabria getting injured while playing out of position

  2. Agustinar says:

    Leao’s best position is left winger. Rebic’s best position is second striker. No formation that accommodate these two position at the same time.

    1. Agustinar says:

      Due to the absence of Theo and Rebic, Milan should change to 433 formation. Put Romagnoli as LB and concentrate in defensive phase, then let Calabria carries the offensive duty from the right back

  3. Mario Miljenko Paolo Brezzo Milos says:

    cant believe we dont have brahim fro the trequartista role, really hope krunic proves hes worth.

  4. DP says:

    Calabria is needed on the right side please.

  5. Cruzio says:

    Whatever changes there is to the formation, Calabria should remain at RB. We need him there.

  6. Adrian says:

    Calabria left and Krunic playmaker change feels like a friendly game more then a champions league

  7. Ibrahim abdullahi darazo says:

    Mr. Pioli u have to consider about the best position of the player at his normal position,

    Changed position may couse problem 4 our team spirit. Up ballo taure as a lb while Cal at rb that is the important of backup.

  8. Dikana says:

    You obviously still think Pioli is making the decisions alone.
    He is advised by Paolo and this team is the strongest we currently have.

    We will win guaranteed.
