Official: Milan vs. Genoa starting XIs – Kalulu preferred over Dalot and Leao leads the line

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli has chosen Rafael Leao to lead the attack against Genoa at San Siro this afternoon.

Milan bounced back from the disappointing 1-1 draw against Sampdoria with a strong win against Parma away from home last weekend, but with just eight games left they need all the points they can get in the top four race.

Gianluigi Donnarumma will be in goal with Simon Kjaer, Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez ahead, and the doubt is whether Diogo Dalot or Pierre Kalulu will be the right-back.

The doubt pivot of Ismael Bennacer and Franck Kessie will be in the middle of the field again, with Alexis Saelemaekers, Hakan Calhanoglu and Ante Rebic in support of Rafael Leao.

Official Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Kalulu, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez; Bennacer, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Rebic; Leao.

Bench: Tatarusanu, Moleri, Romagnoli, Gabbia, Dalot, Tonali, Meite, Krunic, Diaz, Castillejo, Hauge, Mandzukic.

Official Genoa XI (3-5-2): Perin; Goldaniga, Masiello, Zajc; Ghiglione, Strootman, Radovanovic, Cassata, Badelj; Destro, Scamacca.

Bench: Paleari, Zapata, Behrami, Biraschi, Portanova, Pandev, Melegoni, Onguene, Pjaca, Shomurodov, Rovella, Czyborra.
