Sky: Krunic and Saelemaekers could start for Milan instead of Bennacer and Messias in Verona

By Euan Burns -

Rade Krunic and Alexis Saelemaekers could both start for Milan against Hellas Verona on Sunday evening, a report claims.

As has been reported by Italian broadcaster Sky Sport, via Milan News, Stefano Pioli still has two positions in the team that are up for grabs.

There was a question mark over Junior Messias’ chances of starting the game on Sunday and now it seems that he will be on the bench with Saelemaekers taking his place on the right wing.

There could also be a shakeup in midfield. Many expected Sandro Tonali to be partnered in midfield with Ismael Bennacer and Franck Kessie to play just ahead of them.

Instead, Krunic looks set to get the nod to play behind the striker. Kessie will drop back into the double pivot with Tonali and Bennacer will be put on the bench.

The match kicks off at 20:45 CEST at the Stadio Bentegodi on Sunday.

  1. Pioli shouldn’t get cocky, he should field Milan’s strongest team, every match is a final. beside Milan is behind Inter.any slip up, Milan can kiss the scudetto goodbye. Rebic or Junior should play from the right wing.
