AC Milan face Udinese at Stadio Friuli tonight. Coach Pioli will make a couple of changes to the squad that played against Atletico.
AC Milan must quickly forget the Champions League disappointment and concentrate on the league. Udinese vs Milan is one of the last three matches of the Rossoneri before the end of the year.
Coach Stefano Pioli will make some changes for Udinese vs Milan. Alessandro Florenzi will replace Pierre Kalulu on the right. Captain Alessio Romagnoli and Fikayo Tomori will form the central duo while Theo Hernandez completes the back four. Mike Maignan will protect the goal.
Pioli is considering resting Franck Kessie after the disappointing performance against Atletico Madrid. Ismael Bennacer will return to play from the first minute in midfield alongside Sandro Tonali.
The situation in attack continues to be in a state of emergency with many players still injured. The only good news is the recovery of Samu Castillejo. Pioli has decided to drop Junior Messias and deploy Rade Krunic on the left with Alexis Saelemaekers returning on the right wing. Brahim Diaz in the attacking midfielder role will be in support of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Once again the 40-year-old Swedish giant is tasked to lead the attack.
UDINESE (4-4-2): Silvestri, Perez, Becao, Nuytinck, Udogie, Soppy, Walace, Arslan, DEulofeu, Success, Beto.
AC MILAN (4-2-3-1): Maignan, Florenzi, Tomori, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez, Tonali, Bennacer, Krunic, Diaz, Saelemaekers, Ibrahimovic.
