Some updates have arrived regarding the starting line-up that Stefano Pioli will field against Manchester United, and it concerns Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Pioli was unable to name either Ante Rebic nor Rafael Leao in his squad list for the return leg – as well as Alessio Romagnoli and Davide Calabria – and they will therefore not be available for tonight’s match against United. However, the centre-forward will not even be Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who as Pioli explained yesterday at the press conference does not have 90 minutes in his legs.
Samu Castillejo will play at the centre of the Milan attack and will act as a false 9, where Brahim Diaz has played before. There is a significant update regarding the defensive department as Diogo Dalot will not play as the right-back, but instead Pierre Kalulu.
Here is the probable formation of Milan for tonight’s Europa League match against the Red Devils…
Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): G.Donnarumma; Kalulu, Kjaer, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Meite, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Krunic; Castillejo.
