AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli looks set to field Rafael Leao as a centre-forward against Udinese as he has to deal without his two natural strikers.
MilanNews reported how Zlatan Ibrahimovic – as well as Hakan Calhanoglu and Ante Rebic – underwent check-ups after all three left the field during last night’s win over Roma.
Ibrahimovic has suffered a problem with his adductor muscle and will be re-evaluated with an MRI examination in about ten days. The Turkey international, on the other hand, had tests which showed a problem with the medial flexor muscle of the left thigh, but Rebic should make the game.
According to the latest from broadcaster Sky Italia, a back four of Davide Calabria, Simon Kjaer, Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez will be in front of Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Sandro Tonali and Franck Kessie will be the double pivot, with Alexis Saelemaekers, Brahim Diaz and Ante Rebic acting behind Leao.
Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Tonali, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Brahim, Rebic; Leao.
