CorSport: Origi set to make first Milan start against Sassuolo amongst other changes

By Euan Burns -

Divock Origi is set to get his first start for AC Milan when the Rossoneri take on Sassuolo on Tuesday evening and there is a host of other changes too, a report claims.

As has been reported by Corriere dello Sport today (via Milan News), Stefano Pioli is expected to ring the changes for the trip to the Mapei Stadium given there are so many games coming up in very quick succession.

There is a very high chance that the whole attacking unit could be changed. Origi is set to start for the first time in place of Olivier Giroud and he will be keen to impress after arriving from Liverpool.

As well as that, Ante Rebic is expected to come in for Rafael Leao on the left and then Alexis Saelemaekers could start on the right wing in place of Junior Messias.

Milan beat Bologna comfortably on Saturday and Pioli feels his other players can beat Sassuolo.

  1. For me there is no better CF in the game then Olivier Giroud,obvious reason is that his hold up play is so good ,and that inside the 18 yard area he knows exactly where to be at the right time ,and he scores some unique spectacular goals ..Yes he is that good but with the games coming so thick and fast players will have to be rested ,and of course changes will have to be made ,but with the squad we have at the moment ,that should not be a major problem.
    I really do believe we can win the scuddeto again this season ,and we can have a good run in the champions leauge ,as we are better equipped now .

  2. I prefer integration than replacing dem all. Let them come in as it was in the Bologna game not to be changing the whole team becos of some players

  3. Adil will have his moment in that game ,I am so happy we now have various options in several roles to pick from within the club
