Sky: Calabria and Maignan have recovered – Milan’s XI against Verona

By Isak Möller -

Prior to today’s training session at Milanello, there were doubts about the condition of Davide Calabria and Mike Maignan. However, it has now been confirmed that they have recovered, with both set to start against Verona tomorrow. 

Calabria picked up an ankle discomfort after a challenge which resulted in a red card for Slavia Praha, while Mike Maignan bruised his knee when an attacker closed him down. This morning, therefore, there were doubts about their condition ahead of tomorrow’s game against Hellas Verona.

According to Sky Italia, as cited by MilanNews, both players have recovered and will play from the first minute tomorrow. This was confirmed after today’s training session and Stefano Pioli will thus field what is often considered to be the main XI for Milan.

There are still a few battles, though, as one of Malick Thiaw and Matteo Gabbia will partner up with Tomori in defence. Luka Jovic is also in the running for a spot as Olivier Giroud played the entire game on Thursday evening, but these battles will likely be decided tomorrow.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Thiaw/Gabbia, Tomori, Hernandez; Bennacer, Reijnders; Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, Leao; Jovic/Giroud.

Since the international break is scheduled for next week, Pioli doesn’t have to worry about saving some energy for the next game.

    1. Because the international break is next week. They can all rest and we can secure pts. hopefully goals in the first half will bring in changes for the second.

        1. France will first play next Saturday so if he is ready for the verona match then why wouldn’t he start for us ?

          1. You do realize that every substitute keeper in the team knows that they wont play if Maignan is fit and even though the frenchman has had some dubious errors this season its in the greater interest to have him in full form rather than playing sportiello, mirante or nava so we will have to disagree as maignan is far more important to this team than the rest of them.

  1. Let him rest ffs. We have 3 keepers, remember? If you’re afraid of Verona you should stop aiming to 2nd place at this point…

  2. For real you all are funny, and this question is more funny because when he fail to win the match with a below strength lineup, it’s still you all that will insult him.

  3. I am not anti Pioli.
    I do think the gap with 5th 6th is massive. I would like to see some games like to be used to bring players like Chuk and Jovic more playing time, reduce risk injury prone players like Pulisic, Loftus or Maignan more – not to mentiom Theo hasnt stopped playing in 3 years. I’d take a point or a loss here vs an injury any day.

  4. @Martin Bernhard You must pray he’s not getting injured again according to your mentality. He’s NOT 100% mentally at the moment.

    1. Well first of all you dont know me so you dont know anything about my mentality so stop speculating about it and i wont do it about you either but we need him in the best of form and he did in fact also make a great save with his leg in the match against prague the other day before getting subbed off. If the player is deemed ready for the match against verona he surely should play it in my view.
