Sky: Krunic is ahead of Bakayoko for Milan vs. Roma – Pioli undecided up front

By Isak Möller -

Rade Krunic has been used in many positions this season and for the game against Roma, he could return to where he started the season. In fact, he seems to be ahead of Tiemoue Bakayoko.

AC Milan will take on Roma tomorrow evening and they will be looking to make it 2/2, having beaten them at the Olimpico earlier this season. As Ismael Bennacer and Franck Kessie are on international duty, a new partner for Sandro Tonali is needed.

Gazzetta Dello Sport suggested this morning that Bakayoko is in pole position for the starting spot, but left the position open (60-40 vs. Krunic). According to Sky Italia, as cited by Francesco Nasato, Krunic is now in the lead.

As said, Krunic started the season by playing alongside Tonali in the midfield tandem and he did well until he got injured. In addition to the tandem, Stefano Pioli is yet to decide between Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Olivier Giroud up front.

  1. Olivier Giroud should start this match against Roma ,
    and I am backing him to score two goals .
    If Giroud is fit he will have a big impact not only on this game ,but in others to follow ..AC Milan can challenge for the title with the squad and great manager that they have .

    1. I’m so happy that pioli changed his mind to use krunic over incompetent bakayoko.I support Giroud to start over ibra then 2nd half,ibra will replace him depending on the situation of the match.forza rosoneri.
