Official: Juventus vs. AC Milan starting XIs – Tomori, Romagnoli and Kjaer all start

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli has made two changes to the starting line-up to face Juventus compared to the one that started against Liverpool.

Mike Maignan will be the starting goalkeeper, with Fikayo Tomori as the right-back – at least on paper – with Alessio Romagnoli and Simon Kjaer as the centre-backs and Theo Hernandez at left-back. It could be more of a 3-4-1-2 however.

Franck Kessie and Sandro Tonali are the double pivot while Saelemaekers is on the right wing, with Brahim Diaz down the middle and Rafael Leao on the left, plus Ante Rebic as a centre-forward.

Official Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Tomori, Kjaer, Romagnoli, T. Hernandez; Tonali, Kessie; Saelemaekers, B. Diaz, Leao; Rebic.

Bench: Jungdal, Tătărușanu, Ballo-Touré, Conti, Gabbia, Kalulu, Florenzi, Bennacer, Castillejo, Maldini, Pellegri.

Official Juventus XI (4-4-2): Szczesny; Danilo, Chiellini, Bonucci, Alex Sandro; Cuadrado, Bentancur, Locatelli, Rabiot; Dybala, Morata.

Bench: Pinsoglio, Perin, De Sciglio, Pellegrini, De Ligt, Rugani, Ramsey, McKennie, Bernardeschi, Chiesa, Kulusevski, Kean.

    Why not a three-line defence? I’ve wanted to see that for years..

    what a surprise. pioli might be pushed for decision. but this look like a three on defense to me. the line up is 3-4-1-2 no matter how you see it. let see how it really work. i hope it works well and milan could win this.

    I really hope the attack is on point this evening.
    If milan can control the midfield, then the game is ours

  4. Shal says:

    It sounds like Theo will play more front like a midfielder. Interesting to see. What if this is the best possible position for him considering his attacking potential and pretty average defense skills. Just like Gareth Bale in Spurs.

  5. Rossoneri fan says:

    Milan have a very ordinary Coach in Pioli.

    That is the only limitation of the team

  6. Cruzio says:

    We lack depth in this match amd now Simon is injured. I miss Hauge in our attacking line up now that Ibra and Giroud is injured.
