Once they catch a player pressing too aggressively that's where the attack starts. That's what I meant when I said the probing happens deep with Bennacer, and the CBs. Those are the players that are usually free and can draw the opposition, with passes into the midfielders that drop suddenly to create space.

Whoever plays in the AM position isn't there to shuffle the ball or to hold it and look for a penetrating pass. They're there to attack space, usually space that's created because of the movement of the two attackers. Since Suso doesn't do much of this and neither does Piatek as of now we're kind of stuck up front. It doesn't help that Castillejo can't charge his way up without falling over from a gentle breeze.

I'm hoping Rebic can be that physical presence that can attack the space between Piatek and Suso, and for Piatek to be more comfortable outside the box on the left side.

Playing Suso in the middle means we expect him to attack space that's usually crowded, which means he has to physically overpower players at times to make it through. No way that's going to happen. He won't be expected to drop deep and collect the ball to start a move because that's just not how we play. Maybe that's how Ancelotti's 4312 worked with Rui Costa, but I don't expect the AM in this side to be a playmaker. Giampaolo himself said it's more of an attacker role and that's why I think someone like Rebic would work better than Suso.
I think Rebic is basically the perfect balancer of Suso and Piateks skill sett. Going to be wonderful to see them try it out for real.

The Rebic - Suso - Piatek trio doesn't look sexy on paper, but they might work together as they all got different characteristics.

* Piatek scoring the goals and is always free from his marker, thanks to Rebic
* Suso the one creating the chances
* Rebic the one working hard and creating space for Suso to create chances and Piatek to be in a good position

Ideally, I would like to see that trio in 4321 formation, but sometimes it may change to a narrow 442 formation. Rebic left-midfielder, Calhanoglu and Benancer in the middle, Kessie right-midfielder and Suso (who is also on the flank) & Piatek up as strikers. It seemed like Giampaolo tried this tactic in the opening minutes vs Brescia.

Lol obviously he can’t press same way Kessié can . Doesn’t mean he can’t be better in that role than Kessié though does it ? Good ball control , passing and understanding of how to open up space seems to be more important for GIampaolos play. Also Bona has played in a midfield 3 many times and played well so it’s not like he’d be a complete dud at it

Personally, i think the line up will be:

Donnarumma

Calabria - Romagnoli - Musacchio - Rodriguez

Kessie - Bennacer - Paqueta

Castillejo - Suso

Piatek

However, watch out for:

LB - Hernandez. I'm not sure how 100% and ready he is after that injury, but he should be ready for this game. May take RR's place so the latter can get some rest ahead of the Derby. 70% chance for him to start over RR.

CB - Duarte. Bad opposition, GP might risk it and hand him his debut, nonetheless i think Musacchio is favoured to start anyway, as he would like to go for the safe AR13 - MM22 option. 20% chance for him to start over Musacchio.

CM - Bonaventura. Looks to have shaken off the injury problems and was training with the team at Milanello during the international break. Personally, i wouldn't mind Jack starting over Paqueta in this game. GP wouldn't probably mind the same, after his recent comments on Paqueta. Wouldn't start Jack in the Derby, though. 40% chance for him to start over Paqueta.

AM - Rebic. Ante starting over Castillejo might, be a possibility, although i don't see it happening before some games, and not even this one, against fodder opposition. Castillejo knows GP's system (which one?) and was with the team during the international break. 20% chance for him to start over Castillejo.

Subs/Debut - Leao making his debut in this game. I'm very sure that will happen, no matter the scoreline or minute. 80% chance that he will make his debut.

Subs/Debut - Krunic making his debut. I've got the same feeling on this one as i got on Leao making his debut. 75% chance that he will make his debut. (5% less than Leao because he's a midfielder)

nice input fray

I’d personally go for the following. Debut or not, this shouldn’t be a worry. These are professionals who have been training with us for weeks now.
In a 4312 the formation below should do.
This would gives us the freedom to switch to a 433 during the match with Leao and Rebic going to the flanks and they should also switch sides during the match.

Donnarumma

Calabria - Romagnoli - Duarte - Rodriguez

Kessie - Bennacer - Paqueta

Rebic

Leao - Piatek

I think that we will see Suso in Leao's place still, and Rebic hasn't really trained (away with NT) so GP won't start him, so except Samu again. Unless he has the balls to try Hakan/Bona there instead.

Rebic definitely won't start.

This will be a tough game away at a tough stadium. Again I'm hoping for a squeaky 1-0 win with a Borini finish off a scramble after the 80th minute.

Why would you hope that Borini scores instead of Piatek?
