Spezia vs Milan, probable lineups

Spezia is the last Serie A stop of AC Milan before the derby. A must-win match for the Rossoneri who recover three players.

Tonight, at 20:45 CET, the Rossoneri travel to Spezia for the last Serie A match before the derby against Inter. Coach Stefano Pioli has received a great news with Kjaer, Bennacer and Tonali recovering in time for Spezia vs Milan while Brahim Diaz is still out.

In defence the Italian coach will make one forced change. Davide Calabria is suspended and Diogo Dalot will play on the right for Spezia vs Milan. Simon Kjaer has returned and will start from the first minute leaving Fikayo Tomori on the bench. The Dane will partner with captain Alessio Romagnoli. Theo Hernandez completes the back four.

In the midfield, Ismael Bennacer will start from the first minute for the first time in two months. The Algerian maestro has fully recovered and will form the central dam alongside Franck Kessie.

For Spezia vs Milan, Pioli has two big doubts up front. On the left Rebic combines well with Theo Hernandez but Rafael Leao is favorite to play from the start. While for the opposite flank Pioli has decided to trust Saelemaekers once again despite his recent dip in form.

Hakan Calhanoglu made an immediate impact against Crotone assisting two goals for Rebic. The Turkish midfielder will be in support of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, very likely alongside Rafael Leaoa and Saelemaekers reports Gazzetta. An interesting curiosity is that Milan face Spezia for the first time after 100 years.

SPEZIA (4-3-3): Provedel, Vignali, Erlic, Ismajli, Bastoni, Senna, Ricci, Maggiore , Verde, Agudello, Gyasi.

AC MILAN (4-2-3-1) G. Donnarumma; Dalot, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Bennacer, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Leao (Rebic); Ibrahimovic.
