Olivier Giroud will wait for his chance in the second half while Pietro Pellegri has been left out of the match squad. reports that the young Rossoneri striker has suffered an injury in yesterday’s training session. Pietro Pellegri has a blunt trauma on his right ankle.

A very bad news for the former Monaco centre forward. Again, Pellegri is battling with a high number of injuries that have prevented him from giving a contribution this season. In fact, Pellegri has played only three games so far for a total of 60 minutes.
