Stefano Pioli has named his starting XI for tonight’s clash between AC Milan and Monza. Compared to the defeat against Barcelona, the manager has decided to make one change.
The game between Milan and Monza this evening will be the first edition of the Trofeo Silvio Berlusconi. The venue is U-Power Stadium, which has a capacity of nearly 17k, and it’s expected to be sold out.
It’s a special game for both clubs, of course, and they will be hoping to put on a good show on the pitch. Pioli has decided to make one change to the starting XI compared to the last outing, replacing Alessandro Florezni with Pierre Kalulu.
Other than that, it’s the selection you would expect with Rade Krunic starting in the middle of the pitch, and with Christian Pulisic on the right flank.
Official Milan XI (4-3-3): Maignan; Kalulu, Thiaw, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Loftus-Cheek, Krunic, Reijnders; Pulisic, Giroud, Leao.
Bench:Mirante, Sportiello; Bartesaghi, Florenzi, Kjær, Simić; Adli, Musah, Pobega, Romero, Zeroli; Chukwueze, Colombo, Okafor.
Official Monza XI (3-4-2-1): Di Gregorio, Bettella, Carboni, Caldirola; Ciurria, Gagliardini, Pessina, Carlos Augusto; Colpani, Maric; Mota.
Bench:Gori, Lamanna; Birindelli, Cittadini, D’Ambrosio, Marí, Pereira; Bondo, Carboni V., Kyriakopoulos, Machín, Vignato; Caprari, Carboni F., Petagna.
