CorSport: Pioli may field Ibrahimovic and Giroud together from the start in upcoming games

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli could use both Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Olivier Giroud from the start between now and the end of the season, a report claims.

This morning’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanNews) reports how it will be up to Giroud again to lead Milan’s attack against Empoli in tonight’s game at San Siro and in all likelihood he will make way for Ibrahimovic in the second half.

However, the paper claims that Pioli could also think of a different tactical idea which envisages the simultaneous deployment of the two strikers. So far the coach has used the Giroud-Ibrahimovic pairing only in emergencies, but it cannot be ruled out that he uses both of them together from minute one before the end of the season.

In games where Milan encounter a low block and they find it hard to create chances, having the option to go more direct may well help.

  1. 352 is interesting. But we dont have CB. Unless you field fik, kalulu and gabbia. Florenzi and theo on the flank. Kessie, sandro, bennacer. Ibra/Leao-giroud

  2. I think Giroud and ibramavic could work together in the next match ..if we win that one ,we certainly can win the scudetto …both these players have great belief ,and desire to win..Experience sometimes is very important…I am getting very excited ..
    Just imagine to win this competition.We have a great chance ,and I said that some time ago ..
