With the game against Lazio at San Siro on Sunday night fast approaching, some team news is beginning to filter about potential selection choices.
This morning’s edition Tuttosport (via MilanNews) predicts that head coach Stefano Pioli could throw the newly arrived Junior Messias into the fray for what would be his Rossoneri debut, be it in the starting XI or off the bench.
Not only that, but Pietro Pellegri and Tiemoue Bakayoko will be called up for the game too so there could be a trio of first appearances. In midfield, the double pivot is likely be made up of Sandro Tonali and Ismael Bennacer.
This is of course an implication that Franck Kessie is not quite back to 100% of his condition yet and is not expected to be there before the game this weekend, with the medical staff perhaps more cautiously targeting the Liverpool game next Wednesday as his first start.
