Marco Brescianini netted three goals as Stefano Pioli’s Milan beat the Primavera of Federico Giunti on Saturday.
12 Milan players are on international duty, so coach Stefano Pioli has had a reduced squad at his disposal for his first training sessions in charge of the Rossoneri.
Today (Saturday), Pioli’s boys took on Federico Giunti’s Primavera for an in-house friendly match. The game consisted of three parts, each lasting 20 minutes.
With Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara watching from the side, Pioli used a 4-3-3 formation. Pepe Reina was in goal, while the defense consisted of Andrea Conti, Mattia Caldara, Mateo Musacchio and Theo Hernández. In midfield, Lucas Biglia was flanked by Primavera’s Marco Brescianini and Alessandro Sala. The attack was led by Samu Castillejo, Fabio Borini and Giacomo Bonaventura.
Giunti’s XI consisted of the first team’s Antonio Donnarumma in goal, Lenny Borges, Riad Tahar, Simone Potop, Leroy Abanda; Simone Bassoli, Alessio Brambilla, Giovanni Robotti; Siaka Haidara, Emanuele Pecorino and Giacomo Olzer. Over the course of the game, Guinti also used Matteo Soncin, Enrico Di Gesù, Kelvin Cudjoe, Riccardo Oddi, Nikolaos Michelis, Alessandro Negri, Mattia Cretti, Pasquale Costanzo, Francesco Palmieri, Pietro Grassi, Matteo Angeli and Matteo Cattaneo.
The game ended in a 4-0 result with Brescianini scoring a hat-trick and Fabio Borini grabbing one goal. The boys of Pioli will have the day off tomorrow and training should therefore resume Monday.
