Official: Roma vs. Milan starting XIs – Tomori starts as expected; Rebic over Leao

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli has named multiple changes to his starting line-up to face Roma compared to the team that played Red Star in midweek.

Pioli’s men have struggled to hit form in the last few weeks and they will need to change the trend quickly. The race for a top-four finish is very close and three points against the Giallorossi would be huge. You can read our match preview here ahead of the game.

Gianluigi Donnarumma will be in goal, with a back four formed by Davide Calabria, Fikayo Tomori, Simon Kjaer and Theo Hernandez.

In front of them will be a midfield tandem of Sandro Tonali and Franck Kessie, and supporting striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be Alexis Saelemaekers, Hakan Calhanoglu and Ante Rebic.

    Romagnoli is our most experienced defender in terms of age.
    Having him on the bench now makes Milan’s Bench more attractive.
