Sky: Milan’s probable XI for Juve clash – Pioli to trust Real Madrid and Chelsea loan duo

By Oliver Fisher -

Some team news has arrived from Sky Italia in the hours leading up to Milan’s huge game against Juventus at the Allianz Stadium tonight.

Peppe Di Stefano – Sky Italia’s Milan correspondent – spoke live from Turin (via MilanNews) to give the latest on the Rossoneri squad for tonight’s match against Juve. He confirms that the system head coach Stefano Pioli uses will be a 4-2-3-1 masked as a 4-4-2.

In goal will be Gigio Donnarumma, in all probability also with the captain’s armband, while in defence Fikayo Tomori will appear in place of Alessio Romagnoli alongside Simon Kjaer, with Calabria on the right and Theo Hernandez on the left.

In the midfield it will be the all-African double pivot of Ismael Bennacer and Franck Kessie while Brahim Diaz will be together with Alexis Saelemaekers and Hakan Calhanoglu as the trident behind the centre-forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, hoping to break his Allianz Stadium duck.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Bennacer, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Calhanoglu; Ibrahimovic.

    I’m confused why we wouldn’t use Rebic as the 2nd striker. I hope Pioli knows what he’s doing. I think our normal starting attack could break down Juve pretty easily.

  2. Cesar says:

    He once again proved to Pioli that he is incapable or deliberately sabotages AC.Milan to qualify for the Champions League. When we look at the team, we see two bad decisions. Calabria is slow and cannot play against Juventus physically, the same goes for Diaz, the man is on the bench and was injured in bad shape. Milan has two players on that side, Leao and Rebic. And now what’s that fool? Pioli placed little Diaz next to the two offensive left-backs. unbelievable and sad. If we lose tonight it’s because of Pioli again. I am seeking support to seek the immediate resignation of Piolia
