By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is expected to make a number of changes to the starting line-up that beat Roma for tonight’s game against Porto.

According to MilanNews, it should be Ciprian Tatarusanu in goal against with Davide Calabria, Fikayo Tomori, Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez as the back four ahead of him, with Theo having missed the previous group game due to having Covid.

Then the double pivot should be Sandro Tonali and Ismael Bennacer with Alexis Saelemaekers, Brahim Diaz and Rafael Leao the attacking trident behind Olivier Giroud. Zlatan Ibrahimovic will start on the bench ready to make an impact, while Brahim is back in after also missing the last few games due to Covid.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Calabria, Tomori, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Tonali, Bennacer; Saelemaekers, Brahim Diaz, Leao; Giroud.

Probably Porto XI (4-4-2): Diogo Costa; Joao Mario, Pepe, Mbemba, Zaidu; Otavio, Grujic, Sergio Oliveira, Luis Diaz; Taremi, Evanilson.
