Tuttosport: What the tactical tests at Milanello revealed – Pioli’s choices for Atalanta clash

By Isak Möller -

Milan will need a very good performance tomorrow night in order to beat Atalanta, who are already sure of a top-four finish but will be fighting for second place. A lot of pressure is on Stefano Pioli’s shoulders, therefore. 

As reported by Tuttosport (via MilanNews), the BBQ that took place at the training ground a few days ago has made the group even more compact. However, everything will be decided on the pitch and the players will have to show their quality.

Pioli is trying to figure out what the best tactical solution is for the game. During training yesterday, he tried Rafael Leao up front with Alexis Saelemaekers, Brahim Diaz and Hakan Calhanoglu in the attacking trio.

Ante Rebic wasn’t at his best but he should make it as the issue isn’t anything serious, thus set to start up front. Leao will have to battle with Brahim Diaz and Hakan Calhanoglu instead, which is the doubt that remains. The defence and the midfield, on the other hand, will be the same as usual.
