Forget the Roma match.
Repeat the 7 goals like last time against Torino.

I had completely forgot and was thinking about Lecce.

We haven't the squad to compete in 3 competitions and this clearly is the least important. Play the kids.

Forza Milan!

Thiaw suspended unfortunately. Would have been a good game for him to start. I guess more Gabbia, unfortunately.

I really hope we see Devis tomorrow. Dest, Gabbia, Tomori, Theo seems like defense.

Midfield has to be Vranckx Tonali. Tonali suspended for Lecce, so he should start. Bennacer won't play for sure.

Brahim will probably rest. Ideally we play CDK, Adli, Leao behind Lazetic. If Messias is ready then CDK in the middle and Adli instead of Leao.

My hope: Devis, Dest, Gabbia, Tomori, Theo, Vranckx, Tonali, Messias, CDK, Adli, Lazetic.
My expectation: Mirante, Kalulu, Gabbia, Tomori, Theo, Pobega, Tonali, Saelemaekers, CDK, Leao, Giroud.

Vranckx-Tonali
Saele-Adli-Leao
CDK

Throw our depth players into the deep end of the pool. Fucking shame Thiaw can't play.

Worried about Theo. If he’s not rested this game, then he could play 7 games in the space of 24 days after a deep run in the World Cup also. Pioli needs to find a way, Kalulu or Calabria (not Dest please).

Torino plays with their best starting 11 and they are knocking milan out

Why would we play Mirante ahead of Tata?

Ideally we try CDK as ST with Pobega as CAM, with the idea for CDK to act as a playmaking striker and Pobega to provide the physicality/grinta (and some off ball movement and finishing) that normally Giroud would provide. Otherwise Tonali and Leao have to play, Bennacer and Giroud should rest.

Overall I wouldn't rotate too many starters out, because there is a good chance that that would just mean that they will come on early in the second half with more pressure to decide the game and potentially less warm up, which might be a lot worse compared to trying to get ahead in the first half and sub out starters later.

MilanNews writes that Milan will be without 10 players for the game: Maignan, Rebic, Kjaer, Origi, Ballo-Touré, Krunic, Florenzi, Ibrahimovic, Vasquez and Malick Thiaw, the latter of whom is suspended due to a ban that carries over from Germany.

There are two possible choices for Pioli for the match against the Granata. The first is the classic 4-2-3-1, with Gabbia in place of Calabria and Kalulu moved to the right, with Dest in place of Theo on the left. Tonali and Pobega would be in the midfield, with De Ketelaere leading the line to let Giroud catch his breath.

The other hypothesis is a 3-5-2, with Saelemaekers and Dest at wing-back and a three-man midfield formed by Tonali, Vranckx and Pobega. Diaz and De Ketelaere would be the front two in that system, and further indications should arrive tomorrow.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Kalulu, Tomori, Gabbia, Dest; Tonali, Pobega; Saelemaekers, Brahim, Leao; De Ketelaere.

Probable Milan XI (3-5-2): Tatarusanu; Kalulu, Gabbia, Tomori; Saelemaekers, Vranckx, Tonali, Pobega, Dest; Brahim, De Ketelaere.

Pls.Pioli rest Theo and Leao for this stupid game. No one cares about it.

I hope Brahim and CDK switch places during the match.
Curious to see Dest as RW.

With the names being mentioned I prefer the 3-5-2 but I'm not sure how well we will execute it.

I think Calabria should also rest, it looks like his body is far from match fitness level and it's not good to risk him. Actually we are slim in defence, an injury to one of Tomori or Kalulu and we are so fucked.

Salad (LW) - CDK (ST) - Adli (RW) - Brahim (AM). Our best offensive lineup without Leao.
