Sounds like Leao is touch and go for this game.
If hes not 100% perhaps he shud start on the bench. We dont want him injured.

Theo can start LW.
Put Florenzi or Toure at LB

Alternatively we could play 3,4,1,2

Theo and salamkaers on the wings

You know that this is not PES, right? you can’t just throw a team to use any formation that has never been tested before.

SJF

Why dont you make an alternate view so?

Teams sometimes need to adapt when injuries pile up

Ranajaya

Why would i do that?
There is someone who’s being paid millions for doing so. They have license and acces to facilities and the team data to asses what to do about formation.
As a fan i just gonna watch and support them and comment on how they perform

Then you are missing the whole point of a forum!

I miss Ribic and Tomori. Our defence suffers greatly without Tomiri. We would have never lost againt Fiorentina if Tomori was present. Most crucial our defender by far. Shit i hpe Roma is going to be up for the task.

Honestly this game am not putting my whole mind on it definitely? Will watch and see what happens it will take Moses to divide the Red Sea for us to scale from this or perhaps win ucl but my most concern is the scudetto I need our players ready and fit we can always come stronger next season for ucl with stronger strong and maybe good group fixtures unlike this group of death we are so the league is most priority because it’s open and we have the chance to win it

I hope Romagnoli won’t cost us a penalty. lol

Agustinar

Bennacer should be starter. He is more experienced than Tonali in big tournament, so he is a better option.

Agustinar

I prefer Baka to Kessie this time. We need stronger defensive midfielder for this match so our attackers can focus on their duties.

The sooner people realise Milan CANNOT win the UCL this year, the better. The team is bottom of the group at present and qualifying means expecting favours from other teams. Milan should focus on Serie A and return to UCL next year as Italian champions. Imagine getting some more players injured and then facing the next round of league games with a weakened squad. We know the UCL is in Milan’s DNA, but it’s not happening this season. Yes, getting to the next round has some financial rewards and improves the rating which gives better seeding for the draws, but… Read more »

Thank you my brother. I dont mind putting Maldini and Co in the line up today. All my focus is on getting back and better in Seria A.

Exactly my brother ! Let’s focus on Serie 100%. We can’t be aiming Scudeto and Champion League with the already depleted squad at the same time. I don’t want us to lose both ways . Thru winning Scudeto, we can get more money to buy more solid players of our choice and not all these trial and errors mode of buying players

SJF

Seems we are in pole for Renato Sanches, I think everyone would be happy with his signing. Saying that, keeping Kessie would be cheaper. At some point we will have Adli at some point for AM, until then Krunic will have to do. I pray in Jan we get a RW, like Faivre or Noa lang. Next summer we need to get a forward like Jovic or Vlahovic. Perhaps Kerkez could be back up at LB, he looks quality in the youth team. Colombo can come in for Pellegri, Colombo has a huge future! The sooner we get rid of… Read more »
