AC Milan will be looking to make another Coppa Italia semi-final appearance by beating Lazio on Wednesday night at San Siro, and some team news is beginning to emerge.
According to MilanNews, head coach Stefano Pioli should opt for Mike Maignan in goal after his derby heroics on Saturday night against Inter, with a back four protecting him comprising of Alessandro Florenzi, Fikayo Tomori, Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez from right to left.
It is expected that Franck Kessie will keep his place in the line-up but will drop back into the double pivot to form a pairing with Sandro Tonali in front of the defence. Then in attack it should be Junior Messias, Brahim Diaz and Rafael Leao behind the centre-forward Olivier Giroud, who was the hero against Inter with his match-winning brace.
Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Florenzi, Tomori, Romagnoli, Theo; Tonali, Kessie; Messias, Brahim Diaz, Leao; Giroud.
