Giacomo Bonaventura was tried as one of the two trequartisti in today’s training session, but it’s still possible that Hakan Çalhanoğlu will start in this role.
Marco Giampaolo has decided to scrap the 4-3-1-2 formation and will most likely use 4-3-2-1 (or 4-3-3) when his team hosts Brescia at Stadio San Siro on Saturday evening (18:00 CEST kickoff).
As reported by Sky Italia’s Peppe Di Stefano, in today’s training session Giampaolo tested a line-up with Suso and Jack Bonaventura behind Krzysztof Piątek.
Bonaventura hasn’t played a Serie A game since the Derby della Madonnina on October 21 2018 due to a knee injury. However, Jack has returned from the serious injury and Giampaolo is certainly thinking of using the 30-year-old from the start against the newly-promoted Brescia.
The midfield used in training consisted of Franck Kessié, Ismaël Bennacer and Hakan Çalhanoğlu. Di Stefano explains, therefore, that it is very possible that Bona was simply tried in this role today and that tomorrow – in the final training session before the game – Çalhanoğlu will be slotted in this role, with Lucas Paquetá taking the position of the Turkish in midfield.
Milan started the league with a defeat and a very bad performance and they will try to turn everything on Saturday against Le Rondinelle, who will be without the suspended Mario Balotelli.
