CM: Rest and opportunities behind Pioli’s selection choices ahead of Torino game

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face Torino tonight looking to forget about the disappointment of Sunday night’s collapse against Roma by progressing in the cup. write that tonight’s match against Ivan Juric’s Torino will be crucial because the Rossoneri consider the Coppa Italia as a real target, and a quarter-final against either Fiorentina or Sampdoria would await.

Milan will be without 10 players for the game, namely Maignan, Rebic, Kjaer, Origi, Ballo-Touré, Krunic, Florenzi, Ibrahimovic, Vasquez and Thiaw. There is also a game against Lecce on Saturday to think about, so Giroud, Theo Hernandez and Bennacer will be rested at least.

Dest should start on the left either as full-back or wing-back, while there will be a chance for other players like Gabbia and Pobega. De Ketelaere should start up front, and the Belgian talent wants to unlock himself with a goal in front of the over 60,000 expected at San Siro.
