Official: Milan vs. Verona XIs – Tatarusanu starts, Giroud back in the line-up

By Nikita Fesyukov -

AC Milan will face Verona tonight at the San Siro with the Rossoneri looking to confirm their positive moment in the league campaign from before the international break.

Stefano Pioli’s men will play against Igor Tudor’s side at 20:45 CEST and the team will have to cope with several absences, as Brahim Diaz, Theo Hernandez, Mike Maignan and five other players are all out.

Ciprian Tatarusanu will start in goal, while Calabria, Tomori, Romagnoli and Ballo-Toure will support the Romanian in the defensive tandem.

Franck Kessie will start in the middle, as he is set to miss the match against Porto in the Champions League due to suspension, and he will be accompanied by Ismael Bennacer.

Selemaekers, fresh off a new contract at the club, will start on the right flank of the attack, with Daniel Maldini and Ante Rebic playing alongside the Belgian. The lone striker will be Olivier Giroud, who returns to the line-up after a back problem.

Below is the full official line-up, as announced by the club.

Milan’s OFFICIAL XI vs. Verona (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Calabria, Tomori, Romagnoli, Ballo-Toure; Kessie, Bennacer; Saelemaekers, Maldini, Rebic; Giroud
