Tuttosport: Probable Milan XI vs. Juventus – Paqueta on the wing; Calabria at left-back

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli will stick with the 4-2-3-1 system he has used for the last few weeks for Wednesday’s game against Juventus, a report claims.

The Rossoneri will have it all to do in Turin on Wednesday night after the 1-1 first leg draw last month, but if they can beat the Bianconeri then they will reach their third cup final in the past five seasons.

According to the latest from Tuttosport (as cited by MilanLive), Pioli will once again use the 4-2-3-1 despite having the suspensions of Theo Hernandez, Samu Castillejo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to deal with.

Between the posts Gianluigi Donnarumma will return having completely recovered after the ankle sprain he suffered against Fiorentina. Simon Kjaer has also recovered, but he will sit on the bench with Matteo Gabbia partnering Alessio Romagnoli.

Andrea Conti will be on the right, because Davide Calabria will start at left-back over the suspended Hernandez, preferred in favour of Diego Laxalt.

In the midfield, Lucas Paquetá could be tested right on the right wing. For the rest, Hakan Calhanoglu and Ante Rebic will be in their usual attacking midfield and left wing spots, with Rafael Leão to start up front.

Probable Milan XI vs. Juventus (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Conti, Gabbia, Romagnoli, Calabria; Kessie, Bennacer; Paquetá, Calhanoglu, Rebic; Leão
