After missing his third game of the season due to suspension, Theo Hernandez will be back in the starting line-up against Cagliari and Stefano Pioli needs his TGV back.
MilanNews writes how Alessandro Florenzi again did well filling in on the left side, but against Walter Mazzarri’s Cagliari it will be up to Theo to show that he has made the use of having a game off and he will need to strike up that chemistry with Rafael Leao again.
When the Frenchman is behind him, Leao pushes harder and is incisive to the maximum. The mechanisms and the understanding that have been created between Theo and Leao this season are a large part of why Milan have won the games they have and subsequently why they are in top spot.
In 23 league appearances this season, the former Real Madrid man has scored 4 goals and provided 6 assists, confirming his reputation as being one of the best attacking full-backs in the world. Against Cagliari Theo will return, with the hope that he has sat out his last game.
