Tuttosport: Just one selection doubt for Pioli to resolve ahead of Atletico Madrid’s visit

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will host Atletico Madrid at San Siro on Tuesday night looking to record their first Champions League win since the 2013-14 season.

Tuttosport (via MilanNews) reports this morning that Stefano Pioli has only one doubt about the starting XI he will deploy for tomorrow night’s match against the LaLiga champions, with the defence and midfield well fixed in his mind.

Behind Olivier Giroud, who will be the starting centre-forward, it is certain that Alexis Saelemakers will be on the right and Brahim Diaz as the central attacking midfielder, while on the left Ante Rebic and Rafael Leao are competing for a start.

After losing 3-2 to Liverpool in a thriller at Anfield to kick off their group stage campaign, it all of a sudden becomes imperative that the Rossoneri respond well against Atleti on their home turf if they are to keep hold of their chances of progressing through into the last 16.
