MN: Probable Milan XI to face Red Star – five changes from loss to Inter

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will be hoping to do the business at San Siro tomorrow night and advance past the Round of 32 stage of the Europa League by beating Red Star.

Milan will be looking to qualify for the last 16 of the Europa League for the first time in three years when they face Red Star in the second leg on Thursday, and you can read our match preview here.

According to MilanNews, Mario Mandzukic will miss out due to a muscle problem and Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not at 100% physically, as demonstrated also by him coming off in the derby. Ismael Bennacer will also not feature as he continues to recover from a muscle problem.

Gianluigi Donnarumma will have a back four of Davide Calabria, Fikayo Tomori, Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez in front of him, which in turn will be shielded by a double pivot of Soualiho Meite and Franck Kessie.

Samu Castillejo returns on the right wing with Rade Krunic the playmaker and Hakan Calhanoglu on the left wing, but with the possibility of exchanging roles during the game.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): G. Donnarumma; Calabria, Tomori, Romagnoli, Theo; Meite, Kessie; Castillejo, Krunic, Calhanoglu; Leao.
