Official: Pioli names 23-man squad for Sampdoria game – Crucial duo return from suspension

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli has confirmed the 23 players that he has called up for Wednesday’s trip to face Sampdoria.

Pioli battled a crisis during Friday’s 1-1 draw against Atalanta as Theo Hernandez and Ismael Bennacer were both suspended with Andrea Conti, Alessio Romagnoli, Mateo Musacchio and Leo Duarte all injured.

Nonetheless, the Rossoneri fought hard for a 1-1 draw to continue their unbeaten run – which now stands at 10 games – before a tricky trip to the Marassi to face a resurgent Sampdoria side.

Before leaving for Genoa, Pioli issued the list of the 23 Rossoneri players called up for the last away game of the season. The headline is that there is no Conti, who is still injured after the knee knock he sustained in the win over Sassuolo.

GOALKEEPERS
Begović, A. Donnarumma, G. Donnarumma.

DEFENDERS
Calabria, Duarte, Gabbia, Hernández, Kjaer, Laxalt.

MIDFIELDERS
Bennacer, Biglia, Bonaventura, Brescianini, Çalhanoğlu, Kessie, Krunić, Paquetá, Saelemaekers.
