Ante Rebić will get the nod for the third time in a row as there are basically no alternatives who are 100% fit.
In Rebić’s two first seasons at Milan he only got going towards the second half of the campaign; but this year the Croatian seems to be in fine form from the get-go.
In the first four matches of the season, Ante has provided 2 assists and has scored 1 goal (at Anfield against Liverpool).
On Sunday Milan continue their run of matches and they face Juventus away from home. According to Sky Italia and others, Rebić will once again play from the start in the role of the striker in a 4-2-3-1. The reason for that, in addition to Ante’s good performances, is lack of options.
While Zlatan Ibrahimović is out with an Achilles tendon issue, it is today reported that Olivier Giroud is not 100% and is feeling back pain. Meanwhile, Pietro Pellegri is just returning to shape and has yet to play a single minute this term, so the 27-year-old will be entrusted with leading the line for the Rossoneri. Rebić likes playing against Juventus and he scored an incredible goal in the last encounter at the Allianz Stadium, when Milan won 3-0 with Brahim Díaz and Fikayo Tomori scoring as well.
Some changes are expected compared to the XI that played Liverpool. Sandro Tonali will return to the line-up, while Alessio Romagnoli and Alessandro Florenzi could also be chosen to start.
