Tuttosport: Pioli set to confirm usual XI for Sassuolo-Milan but one battle lingers

By Isak Möller -

An important clash awaits AC Milan as they will take on Sassuolo in the final round of this season tomorrow. They need just one point to clinch the Scudetto and Stefano Pioli is set to confirm the usual XI. 

However, there is still some doubt on that front, as reported by Tuttosport (via MilanNews). Olivier Giroud has been a key player in the important games but his contribution has been minimal lately, while Ante Rebic has done well off the bench.

Pioli is thus considering playing Rebic from start in the centre-forward role, also because he has completely different characteristics. With the Croatian, the manager would get more runs behind the defence and also more intense pressing.

As said, he’s heading towards confirming the XI but this battle is lingering, meaning we will simply have to wait and see until tomorrow. Kick-off is scheduled at 18:00 CEST and it should be a great atmosphere at Mapei Stadium, with 18k Milan fans expected.
