Ahead of Sunday’s important clash with Juventus, Stefano Pioli has tried some different solutions to his problems at AC Milan during training. As confirmed by Sky Italia’s Peppe Di Stefano on air tonight (via MilanNews.it), he has tested a 3-4-2-1.
The Rossoneri are in desperate need of three points and the manager is looking for new solutions. By using the 3-4-2-1 formation, per the report, he would be able to add Rodriguez to the defence, while allowing Hernandez to push forward.
The midfield will thus have one less player, although with the additions of flanks (Conti and Hernandez). Di Stefano claims the battle will be between Krunic and Paqueta, as Bennacer has cemented his spot after a poor start to the season.
Up front, things will remain unchanged, with the classic trio of Suso, Piatek and Calhanoglu. Of course, as a result of the formation change, the Spaniard and the Turk will be slightly behind the main man. It remains to be seen if Pioli will use this formation.
