Sky: Predicted XIs for Milan vs. Genoa – Pioli prepares four changes

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan and Genoa will square off at San Siro tomorrow and with second place to defend, the Rossoneri will be keen on celebrating after the final whistle. As per the latest reports, a few changes are expected to the XI. 

The likes of Theo Hernandez and Fikayo Tomori are back from suspension, with the defence thus back to normal order, but Milan will still be without six players. The two most notable absences are those of Mike Maignan and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Due to the Englishman’s absence, Pioli will try out the attacking-minded formation once again with Christian Pulisic in the No.10 role, and Samuel Chukwueze on the right. It worked well against Lecce, so the hope is that it will work again.

Ismael Bennacer also looks set to get a chance, as per Sky Italia, after starting on the bench last time out. Other than that, however, it’s pretty much what you would expect although many would have liked to see Noah Okafor up front.

As for Genoa, Albert Gudmundsson is at risk of missing the game but Genoa are hoping that he can make it.

Predicted Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Sportiello; Florenzi, Thiaw, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Bennacer, Reijnders; Chukwueze, Pulisic, Leao; Giroud.

Predicted Genoa XI (3-5-2): Martinez; Vogliacco, De Winter, Vasquez; Sabelli, Thorsby, Badelj, Frendrup, Martin; Gudmundsson, Retegui.

  1. I prefer adli to be bennacer because of his fastness and power also the pase of adli z better than of bennace

    1. Meh.. right now benacer is out of from but overall he is 5 times the player Adli is. Or ever will be. Fastness? Dude is slow like a grandpa.

      Benacer is the most talented player on this team. If it wasn’t for injuries he’d be a 100M€ player by now

  2. I feel with Okafor’s impressive record, he should be starting ahead of Giroud. Can’t our coach learn some lessons for once. I blame him for must of the matches we lost this season. Always sticking to a style that won’t give you results.

  3. What of importance is this match to us. Can’t we line up players who didn’t get the chance to play during the season?
