Stefano Pioli will confirm the same 3-4-2-1 formation of recent matches also for Milan vs Atlanta. Once again, Malick Thiaw will start from the first minute at the heart of the defence. The 21-year-old German centra back has overtaken Kjaer and Gabbia in the department hierarchy. Thiaw will be accompanied by Fikayo Tomori and Pierre Kalulu.

The French centre forward will lead the attack against the Bergamo club. Milan vs Atalanta could also mark the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic who may have a few minutes at the end of the match.
