MN: Probable Milan XI to face Inter – Pioli to repeat plan to neutralise Brozovic

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Inter will contest their fourth derby of the season tomorrow night as they battle for a spot in the Coppa Italia final.

MilanNews write that some indications came from today’s training session such as the fact that Davide Calabria trained regularly and will be available to play at right-back, and he will also wear the captain’s armband.

Brahim Diaz is expected to sit on the bench to with Franck Kessie tipped to get the nod in the attacking midfielder role because he is more equipped than the Spaniard to deal with Marcelo Brozovic at the base of the midfield.

Olivier Giroud will be up front with Rafael Leao on the left wing and a battle for the right wing between Junior Messias and Alexis Saelemaekers, with the Belgian leading 70-30 in the percentages to start.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Tonali, Bennacer; Messias, Kessie, Leao; Giroud.

Unavailable: Kjaer, Ibrahimovic, Florenzi, Romagnoli.

  1. START REBIC AT RW!!!! SOMEONE WITH QUALITY who has speed and who also runs/defends as well as or better than Saele, but he can deliver crosses better than Saele and he can actually shoot his shots on target to either score or at least force GK to make a save. Saele only misses the goal by 10 METERS at least. Terrible.

  2. Start Rebic at the 10, good with both feet but stronger with his right, great with back to goal, quick to turn and tall enough to see lanes, not going to get pushed around….he has played the 10 before with Frankfurt Eintracht…enough with the headers, everybody knows us, got two last week with the feet, you cannot be one dimensional in any sport, Saele needs a couple Heinekens to loosen his ass up, thats all.

  3. From previous comments and my own comments, it is clear that Pioli doesn’t know how to use Rebic. Rebic has been our main contributor in the 2nd half of our previous seasons. Play Rebic on CAM or RW else change the formation to play him. We are playing with a formation where we don’t have players.Kessie in AM and Saelesmaekers at RW.
