I'm fucking terrified of a Kebab-Kessie double pivot as our only mids.

Having Rebic on the left gives us a lot of in game options.

This is actually an interesting game and a test of Pioli’s adaptability. I’d like to see no points of reference upfront with Rebic starting left, Castillejo starting right and Leao dropping back as a false 9, forming the first defensive wall with Bona and Hakan, and attacking through the middle when we have the ball.

I'm so pumped up for this game. Shame that we wont see Ibra. But seeing Rebic and Castillejo reborn makes me so excited

No Luan Capanni in the squad? He injured?

This might revolt the armchair tacticians in here, but I'd like to see us continue with the 4-4-2 with Rebic and Leao up top. Both players are in stellar form and have been unable to start together because of Ibra. That should be the case but now that Ibra isnt playing they should complement each other nicely because they're in such a flow.

Hakan LM and Kessie-Paqueta CM. It might work.

Hopefully we win by a Maldini goal tomorrow. I want to see daddys reaction.

Behind Maldini in the pecking order it seems.

This will be Rafael Leaos first really dominant display.

Who cares what others think, Leao and Rebic are definitely who we should play up top.

Krunic has a minor injury I believe

Paq should be tried as a CM.
I remember him having some defensive skills when he was in Brazil.
Lax as a LM or Salem as RM could be an option.
I really dont care , am happy that Suso is no more.

I would like to stick with the 4-4-2 too. But we need goals from Leao, and he's depending way too much on a wide starting point. He needs to make serious improvements for this to work.

The 4-2-3-1 that brki is suggesting looks extremely lopsided. 5 players whose natural tendency is to push towards the top left corner area(Hakan, Bona, Leao, Rebic, Theo). That's half of the outfielders. A recipe for a clusterfuck.

I would like to see the 442 with Paqueta-Kessie too, but I think it'll be Kessie-Hakan with Jack on the left instead unfortunately.

Really curious to see Pioli's first XI tomorrow.

Without a genuine CF the best way to play imo would be to have Rebic play code to Leao centrally. Let them combine both short and try to play each other I behind.

I’d keep Hakan at LM drifting centrally. The main problem is at CM where we may well have to play Paqueta. Depending on how things go we might have to put Rebic wide and look a bit more 4141. Kessie needs to play an immense game tomorrow.

All of those players are going to play in the 4-4-2 as well.

I don't think it's possible to pick a good XI with those midfield options.

Yup. I think I'd go with this as well, but is Paq fit? Has he even been training lately?

A 4-4-2 with Hakan as LM and Paqueta-Kessie centrally is surely the way.

Not necessarily. But CM in a 4-2-3-1 is a more defensive role than in a 4-4-2. Hakan's tendencies could cost us more.
Rebic-Leao could perhaps complement each-other, in the front 2 free-roles. Bona would start out wide and drift centrally, leaving the flank for Theo/Rebic, just as he prefers. It's a safer bet than those same players in a forced 4-2-3-1 shape.
