Official: Milan vs. Torino starting XIs – Ibrahimovic starts and rotations made in defence

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli has made a number of changes to his starting XI for tonight’s Coppa Italia Round of 16 game against Torino compared to Saturday’s league win over the same opponents.

Both Brahim Diaz and Sandro Tonali came off the pitch bruised during the win at the weekend, but both have recovered in record time.

Milan have made most of their changes at the back, with Ciprian Tatarusanu to be in goal protected by a back four of Pierre Kalulu, Mateo Musacchio, Alessio Romagnoli and Diogo Dalot from right to left.

Davide Calabria and Sandro Tonali will be in front of the defence, with a similar attack to Saturday night: Samu Castillejo, Brahim Diaz and Rafael Leao – the latter on the left – and Ibrahimovic up front.

Official Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Kalulu, Musacchio, Romagnoli, Dalot; Calabria, Tonali; Castillejo, Brahim Diaz, Leao; Ibrahimovic.

Bench: G. Donnarumma, A. Donnarumma, Calhanoglu, Conti, Hauge, Theo Hernandez, Colombo, Kessie, Michelis, Di Gesù, Mionic, Olzer.

Official Torino XI (3-5-2): Milinkovic-Savic; Izzo, Nkoulou, Buongiorno; Vojvoda, Segre, Rincon, Linetty, Ansaldi; Gojak, Zaza.

Bench: Ujkani, Rosati, Evangelista, Izzo, Lukic, Baselli, Belotti, Ricardo Rodriguez, Singo, Verdi, Murru.
