Sky: Three options for Milan’s XI against Torino – Piatek could be dropped

By Oliver Fisher -

Head coach Marco Giampaolo is considering three possible options for his starting XI ahead of Milan’s trip to Torino, a report claims.

The Rossoneri will make the trip north on Thursday night looking to put Saturday’s derby defeat to Inter in the past.

The team have struggled overall to start the season, with two wins and two defeats in the opening four games, including just two goals scored and only one from open play.

Tuesday’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport has already suggested that Giampaolo could ring the changes from the weekend, including the possible use of a 4-3-3 for the game against the Granata.

According to reports from Sky Italia (via MilanNews), one of the options for the Torino game includes starting with the system that played the second half in Verona.

The proposed changes involve Ismael Bennacer as the regista and Ante Rebic as a left winger in a 4-3-3, with Theo Hernandez in for Ricardo Rodriguez.

Another option could be to start Rafael Leao instead of Rebic after his bright performance in the derby, or even Leao as a striker in place of Krzysztof Piatek.
