GdS: The two players that Pioli must get back into form to cultivate Milan’s title dream

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will get back in action in just over a week as their quest to win the Scudetto continues, and Stefano Pioli needs to find the best version of two players.

This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reports how there were high expectations at the beginning of the year for Brahim Diaz and Ante Rebic, but both have failed to hit consistency so far due to a combination of factors. However, the pair combined for 7 goals in the last 8 league matches last season and the hope is that they can put together a similar run.

The Croatian winger been heavily affected by injuries and he has lost the rhythm that made him so decisive in the last two campaigns, with only two league goals to his name so for. Moreover, the explosion of Rafael Leao then further limited his opportunities.

Diaz started the great season, then he got Covid and from there he has struggled, with even Krunic and Kessie used as the attacking midfielder over him. He hasn’t scored since September, so the Spaniard must find an extra gear as soon as possible.

Both are at Milanello and will therefore have the opportunity to work to return to top form, because to achieve the Scudetto dream, Pioli also needs the both of them.
