AC Milan’s trip to face Cagliari is fast approaching and head coach Stefano Pioli is thinking about changes compared to the team that started against Empoli.
Milan will make the trip to Sardinia looking to keep hold of first place in the table and for the match in Sardinia, Pioli would be considering some changes compared to the game last Saturday, we have learned from SempreMilan.it.
The first news concerns the return to the left-back position for Theo Hernandez, who served a suspension against Empoli, while on the right side there is a battle between Alessandro Florenzi and Davide Calabria with the latter currently favourite.
At centre-back, Pierre Kalulu and Fikayo Tomori should keep their spots as the Frenchman seems to have usurped Alessio Romagnoli in the hierarchies.
Pioli is thinking of bringing Brahim Diaz back into the starting line-up and then he could field Franck Kessié in place of either Sandro Tonali or Ismael Bennacer as both need a rest, or the Ivorian could be benched.
In attack the trident seen on the pitch with Empoli should be kept but the next training sessions could provide some news about the centre-forward role with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ante Rebic vying to get the nod over Olivier Giroud.
