Pioli chooses starting XI for AC Milan vs Roma

AC Milan will face Roma in the Serie A main event of this week. Pioli is forced to confirm the same starting eleven. 

Tomorrow, AC Milan will host Roma at San Siro at 20:45 CET. The Rossoneri started the new year with a dominating performance against Salernitana and minus five points from Napoli. AC Milan vs Roma could be a crucial match for the Scudetto hopes of Stefano Pioli’s squad.

The Italian coach is set to confirm the starting elven that playing against Salernitana also because his choices are extremely limited. Fikayo Tomori and Pierre Kalulu will form the central duo in defence. Theo Hernandez will be given no chance to rest. The French left-back and Davide Calabria will complete the back four.

Sandro Tonali has started the new year with the same energy and attitude. The 22-year-old aims to repeat himself in Milan vs Roma and will partner at the heart of the midfield with Ismael Bennacer.

Charles De Ketelaere was in great form with Salernitana but Brahim Diaz is currently in advantage. Rafael Leao and Alexis Saelemaekers will be confirmed on the wings with Olivier Giroud to lead the attack once more.

AC MILAN Probable XI (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu, Theo Hernandez, Tomori, Kalulu, Calabria, Tonali, Bennacer, Leao, Diaz, Saelemaekers, Giroud.

ROMA Probable XI (3-4-2-1): Rui Patricio, Mancini, Smalling, Ibanez, Celik, Cristante, Pellegrini, Zalewski, Dybala, Zaniolo, Abraham.
