Stefano Pioli has named his XI for tonight’s clash between AC Milan and Roma underneath the floodlights at San Siro. There are no surprises, with the manager making zero changes compared to last time out.
Amid the many absences, nine in total, Popoli has decided to opt for consistency. It’s certainly understandable given how well the Rossoneri did against Salernitana, even if the final scoreline was 2-1.
Charles De Ketelaere was in the running for a spot but in the last few days, every outlet suggested Brahim Diaz was ahead and this has turned out to be true. Surely, though, we will see the Belgian off the bench.
Official Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Bennacer, Tonali; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leao; Giroud.
Bench: Mirante, Nava, Adli, Bakayoko, Dest, Lazetic, Thiaw, Pobega, Vranckx, Gabbia, De Ketelaere, Bozzolan.
