Stefano Pioli should not make any changes on Sunday: the same XI that played against Parma and Bologna is expected to play again.

Milan face Sassuolo at San Siro on Sunday afternoon and they will look to celebrate the club’s 120th birthday with a win.

The Rossoneri have not yet strung together three wins in a row this season and they have a good opportunity to do it in three days against the Neroverdi.

As reported by Milannews.it’s Antonio Vitiello, coach Stefano Pioli intends to use against Sassuolo the same XI he used for the games against Parma and Bologna. This means keeping Lucas Paquetá and Rafael Leão on the bench, playing Jack Bonaventura and Krzysztof Piątek.

Probable XI (MN): Gianluigi Donnarumma; Andrea Conti, Mateo Musacchio, Alessio Romagnoli, Theo Hernández; Franck Kessié, Ismaël Bennacer, Giacomo Bonaventura; Suso, Krzysztof Piątek, Hakan Çalhanoğlu.

It would make more sense to me to drop Çalhanoğlu and put Bonaventura at LW and play Paquetá in midfield as a mezzala. I honestly don’t understand why Calhanoglu is playing especially in a more advanced role than Bonaventura.

Why is Pioli not playing Paquetá as a mezzala? It would give Bonaventura more freedom to create and make more runs in the box. Sigh!

I totally agree with you, Hakan has faded in the last two games as far as I remember especially in the second half. He will sometime score one or two brilliant goals but he is no way near Milan quality. Paqueta is the future and we have to play him regularly, he is way better than Hakan can ever be. Yes, he has shown attitude but will grow with time. Since, we are having a good time (only two consecutive wins…still), no better time to play Paqueta than now. This will give him some confidence for upcoming games. I think… Read more »

like i said, kessie as regista/dm and bennacer and paqueta as mezz’ali/cm is milan best bet. having said that, i think paqueta needs to grow up and be less naive; he tends to hold the ball for too long and then losses it in dangerous position when simple pass would be better option, and he tackles sloppily a la scholes giving away free kicks. he needs to learn from iniesta; he’s the greatest dribbler-not-named-messi of his generation but he knows when to do it and when to pass. add to that a great vision and hard work and u have… Read more »

I would play Kessie as a DM or even as CB. He may leave this spring. We need at least 30-35 mil for selling him.

We are trying to sell Hakan. It is obvious we want to get some value. Did you not see that 6mil bid?
