MN: Pioli expected to make at least two changes in attack for Bologna’s visit – the latest

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is set to make at least two changes to the starting line-up for the game against Bologna compared to the team that drew with Atalanta, a report claims.

After Ante Rebic got two goals in the win against Udinese and Brahim Diaz managed a goal and an assist, Pioli decided to keep the duo in their respective roles for the trip to Bergamo.

MilanNews reports how Pioli’s men are preparing for the match on Saturday night at San Siro against Bologna. The Rossoneri had a day of rest yesterday but reconvened this morning at Milanello.

The feeling is that the time has finally come for Charles De Ketelaere to get his first start and he should therefore occupy the playmaker role, replacing Brahim Diaz.

The same feeling also exists for Olivier Giroud who should get his first start too, thus sending Ante Rebic to the bench where he could resume a role as an impact substitute. The tactical drills scheduled for tomorrow will provide further updates.

  1. I hope pioli use 4312 with duo striker infront leao-giroud and AMF charles. 3 midfield adili ,tonali,bennacer thats our best midfield this season . No need to start junior or lord saladmaker

  2. Pioli can try and implement diamond setting. Milan needs 2 attackers. Bring back old fearful milan and stop experimenting

  3. I think against teams like Bologna it would be better to start with Rebic as false 9. They have a pretty weak defense line and we can get an advantage if we put some pressing on their defenders.
    Then, when they get tired, we let Giroud in and he just closes the game using his experience and skills.

  4. Giroud is the man ,the most underrated striker in the world ,but to me always been one of the best ..This man always believes ,,he has the technical ability to disrupt any defence ,his awareness and strength in the 18 yard area is second to none ..He will score goals make no mistake about that ..He is a great old fashioned centre forward ,,yes he needs pace around him ,but this team has that in abundance .
    We have a great team ,and capable of beating anyone
    and indeed challenge for honours again this season.
    So it’s AC Milan for me ,and Olivier Giroud leading the line ..We won the scuddeto with him ,and he scored the important goals at the right moments ,trust in him I do …
