Sky: Milan’s probable XI for Roma clash – Pioli eyes four changes; Leao to start

By Isak Möller -

Milan’s next game in Serie A is against Roma, albeit on Monday and not this weekend due to the Europa League. The Rossoneri kicked off the group stage with a win against Celtic, scoring a total of three goals in the end. 

However, there is no time for the players to enjoy the result too much, as the Roma clash is just around the corner. Stefano Pioli’s have won all of their league games thus far and could cement their spot at the top with a win against the Giallorossi.

According to Sky Italia (see photo below), the manager is expected to make four changes to the starting eleven that played against Celtic. Hakan Calhanoglu is set to miss the game due to his ankle sprain, meaning Brahim Diaz will start once again.

Instead of Rade Krunic, though, Rafael Leao is tipped to get the chance even though the Bosnian scored last time out. Davide Calabria, Ismael Bennacer and Alexis Saelemaekers, the usual starters, will return after getting some rest against Celtic.

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