Ivan Juric’s Torino are back at San Siro tomorrow night as AC Milan look to put an end to their poor run of form so far in 2023.
According to a report from MilanNews, Rafael Leao will return to the starting line-up after being left out from minute one against Sassuolo and Inter, and he will be accompanied by Brahim Diaz – free to vary between central areas and the right wing – and Olivier Giroud up front.
In the midfield line will be Alexis Saelemaekers, Sandro Tonali, Rade Krunic and Theo Hernandez from right to left with that being two wing-backs and two central midfielders.
The three-man defensive line will be maintained from the Inter game, made up of Pierre Kalulu, Simon Kjaer and Malick Thiaw, the latter of whom came on and did well in the derby.
Probable Milan XI (3-4-3): Tatarusanu; Thiaw, Kjaer, Kalulu; Saelemaekers, Tonali, Krunic, Theo Hernandez; Diaz, Giroud, Leao.
Bench: Mirante, Vasquez, Calabria, Gabbia, Ballo-Touré, Dest, Bakayoko, Pobega, Vranckx, Adli, De Ketelaere, Messias, Ibrahimovic, Rebic, Origi.
Unavailable: Maignan, Florenzi, Tomori, Bennacer.
One yellow from a ban: Calabria, Leao, Giroud, Rebic.
Ibra subbing in and getting the goal to draw
Zlatan lets goo!!! im so happy he is back finally!! hope he can stay healthy now!!
Not giroud please
Giroud can only be subs at best, not starter, bring some fresh faces. Anyway the season is over
Just seeing the name Ibra on the bench gives us a boost of energy. Agree with the Diaz choice. We’re in shortage of players that can penetrate opponent’s half like him. He seems to always give extra energy on the field as well.
Its a strong lineup, we will see how thiaw will play, i would have tried pobega in the middle or vrancks but lets see how it does. Also would bring dest and pobega/vrancks at half time if we dont play well enough. Also CDK will be a good sub for giroud and not diaz. Good luck abd hope for a win.
I hate to see this goalkeeper tata on , he is a mess with bad luck
Can we not try goalkeeper except this robish tata
Can we give Giroud a day off please!
