AC Milan host Udinese at San Siro but the Rossoneri will be without many players that have suffered injuries.
Roma-Milan was an absolutely costly match as much such as to influence the upcoming Milan vs Udinese. Many Rossoneri players suffered injuries against Roma and will be unavailable for the next round of Serie A.
Ismael Bennacer and Mario Mandzukic have been out for a while while Hakan Calhanoglu and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are the new additions. The two could miss a few games and not only Milan vs Udinese.
In the last training session Davide Calabria and Fikayo Tomori experienced problems and will not be risked from the first minute. Captain Alessio Romagnoli will start against alongside Simon Kjaer. Theo Hernandez is undisputed on the left while on the right Pierre Kalulu seems favorite over Dalot.
No doubts regarding the central midfield duo. Both Franck Kessie and Sandro Tonali made a great performance against Roma and need to repeat themselves for the very difficult match with Udinese.
Without Zlatan, Calhanoglu and Mandzukic, Pioli up front are practically forced. Brahim Diaz will replace Hakan with Ante Rebic on the left wing. Castillejo will likely be preferred over Saelemaekers. Rafael Leao will have another shot in the centre forward role.
AC MILAN: (4-2-3-1) Donnarumma; Dalot (Kalulu), Kjaer, Romagnoli, T.Hernandez; Kessie, Tonali; Castillejo, Diaz, Rebic; Leao.
UDINESE (3-5-2): Musso, Becao, Bonifazi, Nuytinck, Larsen, De Paul, Arslan, Pereyra, Zeegelaar, Llorente, Nesterovski.
