MN: Probable Milan XI for Monza clash – three battles to decide

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan will take on Monza away from home tomorrow evening and Stefano Pioli is expected to make a couple of changes to the starting XI. However, he’s yet to make his final decisions, a report claims. 

The Rossoneri will be looking to make it three consecutive wins tomorrow and thus fully get out of their negative period. As such, tomorrow’s clash will be decisive in determining just how well the new 3-4-3 formation works.

According to MilanNews, there are three battles that Pioli must decide for the starting XI: Messias vs. Saelemaekers (60-40%), Brahim Diaz vs. De Ketelaere (65-35) and Origi vs. Giroud (55-45). In the morning, we should know more about these battles.

Probable Milan XI (3-4-3): Tatarusanu; Kalulu, Tomori, Thiaw; Messias, Krunic, Tonali, Hernandez; Diaz, Origi, Leao.

It’s not exactly surprising that Origi could get the chance as Giroud has played quite a lot lately. Saelemaekers has also worked very hard in recent games and due to Calabria’s injury, Messias is next in line. CDK might have to wait for his chance, though.
