Sky: Milan’s probable XI to face Fiorentina – Pioli could start Diaz and Kessie

By Isak Möller -

In the last few days, the question has been whether Stefano Pioli will start Brahim Diaz or Franck Kessie against Fiorentina. However, as per the latest report, the manager could start them both. 

Diaz and Kessie have taken turns starting in the No.10 role this season but as a result of Ismael Bennacer’s injury last time out, both played from start. Many expected (and still expect) Pioli to start Bennacer now that he’s back, but it might not be the case.

According to Sky Italia (see photo below), Bennacer could start on the bench with Pioli confirming the XI we saw against Lazio. Diaz has had countless chances to show his qualities this season and this will be another one, hopefully with a better outcome.

As for Kessie, his importance is undeniable but it’s still somewhat of a surprise to see him chosen ahead of Bennacer. The latter, in fairness, hasn’t made that many training sessions with the team this week and that might be the reason.
