Pioli overhauls attack for Torino vs AC Milan

Pioli is set to make five formation changes for tonight’s Torino vs Milan. Divock Origi will be tasked to lead the attack.

The Rossoneri turn their attention to Serie A after the excellent display in Croatia with AC Milan defeating 4-0 Dinamo Zagreb and putting themselves in a comfortable position for progress to the knockout stage. Considering the upcoming Champions League match against Red Bull Salzburg, coach Stefano Pioli aims to make significant formation changes for Sunday’s Torino vs Milan.

Matteo Gabbia had a night to remember in Croatia with a crucial clearance and his first career goal. The Italian central defender will partner with Fikayo Tomori. Theo Hernandez will play on the left while Pierre Kalulu will be confirmed on the right. CiprianTatarusanu between the posts.

Tommaso Pobega will face his former club Torino from the first minute. The Italian midfielder had an excellent spell with Ivan Juric’s side last year. Pobega will play alongside Sandro Tonali. Ricardo Rodriguez and Pietro Pellegri for two former Red and Black players that now represent Torino.

Pioli has decided to overhaul the attack for Torino vs Milan. Brahim Diaz will return to play for the first minute. The Spaniard excelled against Monza but an injury kept him out with Zagreb. Pioli’s experiment with Ante Rebic on the right wing was a failed one. Junior Messias, a natural right winger, will start in Torino vs Milan with Rafael Leao on the opposite flank.

Divock Origi will be given his second back-to-back first minute start in Serie A. The former Liverpool striker did great with Monza scoring his first goal with the Red and Blacks.

TORINO Probable XI (3-4-2-1): Milinkovic, Djidi, Schuurs, Rodriguez, Lazaro, Lukic, Ricci, Vojvoda, Vlasic, Miranchuk, Pellegri.

AC MILAN Probable XI (4-2-3-1) Tatarusanu; Kalulu, Tomori, Gabbia, Theo Hernandez; Tonali, Pobega; Messias, Diaz, Leao; Origi.
