Sky: Probable Milan XI to face Inter – six changes compared to Atalanta defeat

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli will make six changes to his starting XI for tomorrow’s Coppa Italia game against Inter compared to the defeat against Atalanta.

Milan boss Stefano Pioli will be without five key players for the game, as Gianluigi Donnarumma will be suspended, while Matteo Gabbia, Ismael Bennacer, Hakan Calhanoglu (COVID-19) and Pierre Kalulu will all miss the game.

However, Alessio Romagnoli and Alexis Saelemaekers were both absent against Atalanta through suspension and will be back.

According to Sky (via MilanNews), Stefano Pioli will give Davide Calabria a rest tomorrow in the Coppa Italia derby against Inter meaning Dalot will be in his place as right-back.

Sandro Tonali will also start from the bench, so Soualiho Meite will be in the midfield alongside Kessie. Behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be Alexis Saelemaekers, Brahim Diaz and Rafael Leao.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Dalot, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Theo; Meite, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leao; Ibrahimovic.
