GdS: Another opportunity presents itself to Origi as Pioli discovers ideal situation

By Oliver Fisher -

Divock Origi should be given his second start for AC Milan on Sunday night against Torino and he is itching to build on his first goal.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via PianetaMilan) reports that Origi should be the man who leads the line for Milan in their trip to face Ivan Juric’s Torino, just like he did against Monza when he finally broke his duck with a rocket into the top corner in the second half.

Olivier Giroud was the starter in the Champions League against Dinamo Zagreb and he scored a penalty, but given that there is not long between games at the moment Origi is favoured for a starting place in Turin.

This is ultimately the scenario that Pioli wanted: two healthy centre-forwards who can both contribute and can be rotated to keep the other at 100%, a situation that will improve further in 2023 when Zlatan Ibrahimovic makes his long-awaited return.

  1. Origi deserve to be our main striker , and I believe that he will earn the spot…
    He is more effective, Giroud and Zlatan can always come on as a sub ….

  2. I disagree with you Giroud is technically the better player ,and his awareness and being in the right place at the right time is second to none …he creates so much space for others ,and I think we are a better team when he plays’s not all about pace ,as the first few yards are in his head ..If Olivier has enough pace around him ,he will score goals make no mistake about that ..which he has especially when alongside him he has players such as the brilliant rafeol leao .Yes I am a huge fan ….plenty more goals to come from both leao and Giroud..
    Oliver Giroud when he was signed I predicted that we would win the scuddeto which we did ..I also believe we can win it again this season .We will need the services of Olivier to help us to deliver .
