Tuttosport: Pioli expecting more as Brahim Diaz gets his latest opportunity

By Oliver Fisher -

The game against Lazio in the capital tonight will provide a new opportunity for Brahim Diaz to prove that he is worthy of a starting spot.

This morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) talks about how the absence of Ismael Bennacer will certainly be a very important one at the Olimpico, and to replace him Pioli will go back to Brahim Diaz, who will play behind Olivier Giroud with Franck Kessie dropping back to the double pivot.

With the Spaniard, the Rossoneri head coach is looking for more creativity in the attacking trident behind Giroud because the fact the team have been shut out in three of the last four games suggests a problem.

Brahim also has a slump to overcome given he has not scored a goal since last September, but it could be that a moment of quality is all he needs to light a spark ahead of the final few games.
