AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli has chosen to make some changes to his starting line-up to face Inter compared to the team that drew against Udinese on Friday.
The back four for the Rossoneri in front of Mike Maignan has one change as Alessandro Florenzi, Fikayo Tomori, Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez all get starts. In midfield there is a change too as Sandro Tonali is out through suspension so Ismael Bennacer will partner Franck Kessie.
Then Pioli has chosen freshen up the attack with two alterations and the first is that Alexis Saelemaekers – who hasn’t started since the league derby against Inter on February 5 – is preferred to Messias on the right wing. Rade Krunic has taken the place of Brahim Diaz, with Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud completing the attack.
