Stefano Pioli has made just one change to the starting XI for this morning’s clash between AC Milan and Barcelona. In other words, he has once again decided to rely on what should be the starters for next season.
Davide Calabria sustained a minor injury in the game against Juventus and will thus not play from the first minute this time out. Pioli has decided to replace him with the experienced Alessandro Florenzi, who was in a battle with Alexis Saelemaekers.
Other than that, though, it’s exactly the same XI as we saw in the game against the Bianconeri. After a loss and a draw, the Rossoneri will be looking to grab their first win in the final game of the USA pre-season tour.
