Official: Bologna vs. AC Milan starting XIs – Castillejo and Ibrahimovic start

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli has made two changes to the starting line-up for tonight’s game against Bologna compared to the team that lost to Porto in midweek.

Samu Castillejo will get a chance from start after the Spaniard was impressive against Hellas Verona off the bench, taking the spot of Alexis Saelemaekers who has perhaps shown that he is in needed of a rest.

Up front, Zlatan Ibrahimovic makes his first start of the season while Rade Krunic and Rafael Leao complete the attack. Simon Kjaer will keep his spot in the heart of the defence, with Alessio Romagnoli starting on the bench again.

Fode Ballo-Toure and Davide Calabria will be on the left and right side of defence while Sandro Tonali and Ismael Bennacer remain as the double pivot, with Franck Kessie suffering from flu. You can read our preview of the game here.
