Sky: Probable Milan XI to face Lazio – no Ibra or Theo as Rebic could start up front

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli looks like having some more selection battles to content with in Monday’s game against Lazio, a report claims.

As reported by Peppe Di Stefano for Sky (via MilanNews), Milan are moving towards a team against Lazio that almost picks itself. Davide Calabria and Diogo Dalot will be the right-back and left-back respectively, while the return of Ismael Bennacer alongside Franck Kessie should occur in midfield.

The same attacking quartet seen against Sassuolo could take the field, with Ante Rebic and Alexis Saelemaekers on the wing, plus Hakan Calhanoglu as the playmaker behind Rafael Leao. However, it seems that the presence of the Portuguese forward is far from guaranteed after another goalless outing in midweek.

That is because there are two hypotheses under consideration: the first is that Alessio Romagnoli could start in defence, and the second is that Brahim Diaz could take the place of Leao, with Rebic then the striker.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Dalot; Bennacer, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Rebic (Brahim); Leao (Rebic).

    It’s over, AC Milan will not go to the Champions League this year either. The strategy is humiliating and embarrassing, but it was inevitable when we see how the players behave on the field. Individuals imagined themselves to be great players and not need to give 100% to the game. This is a school for Maldini and Massara. You must first have a quality coach with great authority for players to have to play every game 100%. Another disappointing season. Against Lazio Milan must win, but it is an impossible mission.

    There was nothing new that Milan had battled with player selection , it’s Because the head coach himself, If Milan couldn’t solve this problem then they’re not gonna compete in UCL.
    Milan needs better headcoach….
