Stefano Pioli is going to use tomorrow the same XI that started against Lecce.
The Rossoneri face Roma at Stadio Olimpico tomorrow at 18:00 CET and coach Pioli is expected to keep his faith in the 11 that started against Lecce.
As reported by Milannews.it, Andrea Conti will start on the right-hand side of the defense. Davide Calabria is back from his suspension, but Pioli is reportedly going to play Conti, who gave away a penalty against Lecce with a rather avoidable handball.
Lucas Biglia is still preferred over Ismaël Bennacer and he’ll work with Franck Kessié and Lucas Paquetá in midfield. It remains to be seen whether Kessié will again play on the left, allowing Theo Hernández to push through the left, like he did last week.
In attack, Rafael Leão is expected to once again be preferred over Krzysztof Piątek. The Polish striker was on target against Lecce, but Pioli seems to believe Leão’s characteristics as a central forward make him a better fit for the game. Leão missed a few excellent goal-scoring chances against Lecce, but overall – especially in the first half – he had a positive impact on the Milan attack.
Suso, despite not playing to his level this season, will keep his spot on the left, while Hakan Çalhanoğlu will hope to reproduce on Sunday evening the performance he had against Lecce.
AC Milan (4-3-3) – Stefano Pioli (Probable)
Gianluigi Donnarumma; Andrea Conti, Mateo Musacchio, Alessio Romagnoli, Theo Hernández; Lucas Paquetá, Lucas Biglia, Franck Kessié; Suso, Rafael Leão, Hakan Çalhanoğlu.
