After the frustrating performances of recent games AC Milan need to redeem urgently today against Chievo Verona. Montella confirms the same lineup.
A few days after the disappointing 0-0 in Milan vs Genoa, we are already on the eve of another league match. The rossoneri, today evening at 20:45 CET, face Chievo Verona in a match valid for the 10th round of Serie A. Three points are an obligation.
Vincenzo Montella talked about the game a few minutes ago in the usual pre-match press conference. The technician provided some hints on what will be the starting lineup tomorrow. One thing is certain: Milan will continue with the defense at three and in particular with the 3-4-2-1 formation seen last Sunday and even in other situations. According to the latest news, the coach should will again trust on Hakan Calhanoglu near Suso and behind Kalinic (again favorite over Andre Silva) according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Montella praised the Turkish midfielder in the press conference and is ready to give him another chance. Just as for Andre Silva. Taking the place of captain Leonardo Bonucci in the center of the defense will be Alessio Romagnoli: at his side Mateo Musacchio and Ricardo Rodriguez. The Swiss is again proposed as central defender: a few meters ahead should play Davide Calabria with the excellent Fabio Borini on the other side. In the middle, a guaranteed place for Franck Kessie, while Lucas Biglia is struggling with a muscular problem in these hours, he may miss the match. Manuel Locatelli is the alternative with Giacomo Bonaventura out for injury.
Regarding the opponents, Rolando Maran has only one doubt for his Chievo: in attack Sergio Pellissier seems in advantage over Manuel Pucciarelli. Sure starting place for Roberto Inglese, coming from a brace scored in the derby against Verona. Then the usual defense and usual midfield.
CHIEVO (4-3-1-2): Sorrentino; Cacciatore, Dainelli, Gamberini, Gobbi; Hetemaj, Radovanovic, Castro; Birsa; Pucciarelli (Pellissier), Inglese.
AC MILAN (3-4-2-1): Donnarumma; Musacchio, Romagnoli, Rodriguez; Borini, Kessie, Biglia (Locatelli), Calabria; Suso, Calhanoglu; Kalinic.
