Official: Roma vs. AC Milan starting XIs – four changes from win over Torino

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli has made four changes to the starting line-up that beat Torino on Tuesday night for the game against Roma tonight.

Ciprian Tatarusanu will have a back four ahead of him consistent of Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori and Theo Hernandez. Kessie and Bennacer will be the double pivot, while Alexis Saelemaekers and Rafael Leao are expected to be on the right and left wing respectively and Zlatan Ibrahimovic the centre-forward.

The big news is that Brahim Diaz is not fit enough to start and as such will be on the bench for the beginning of the game with Rade Krunic chosen to play the playmaker role instead. Roma will also play a 4-2-3-1 formation, meanwhile.

Official Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Theo; Kessiè, Bennacer; Saelemaekers, Krunic, Leao; Ibrahimovic.

Bench:  Mirante, Jungdal, Conti, Romagnoli, Ballo-Toure, Kalulu, Gabbia, Bakayoko, Tonali, Maldini, Krunic, Giroud.

Official Roma XI (4-2-3-1): Rui Patricio, Karsdorp, Mancini, Ibanez, Vina, Cristante, Veretout, Zaniolo, Pellegrini, Mkhitaryan, Abraham.

Bench: Fuzato, Boer, Kumbulla, Calafiori, Zalewski, Darboe, Afena-Gyan, El Shaarawy, Bove, Carles Perez, Shomurodov, Tripi.
