Tuttosport: Pioli considering three formations to get the best out of his midfield and attack

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach is considering the use of three potential combinations for his attack and midfield when all players are fit, a report claims.

As seen in the excerpt below from today’s print edition of Tuttosport, the Rossoneri head coach is analysing three potential combinations to try and get the best out of his squad both from a balance point of view but also in terms of attacking prowess and midfield stability.

The first solution is the 4-2-3-1 we have grown accustomed to over the past 18 months or so, involving Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer as the double pivot and Alexis Saelemaekers, Brahim Diaz and Rafael Leao as the trident behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The second system listed is the 4-4-2 or a 4-2-2-2, with Bennacer and Kessie in the midfield, Ante Rebic on the left wing and Alessandro Florenzi on the right, plus Ibrahimovic and Olivier Giroud up front.

Finally, the 4-3-3. This would see Kessie, Bennacer and Sandro Tonali all deployed together with Junior Messias wide right, Leao on the left and Giroud down the middle.
