Coppa: Milan vs Juventus, probable lineups

AC Milan must forget the disappointing result of the derby and concentrate on the upcoming Coppa Italia semi-final against Juventus.

The derby match against Inter has left great disappointment among the Rossoneri. AC Milan were leading 2-0 at the end of the first half but lost the match 4-2. Nevertheless, Pioli’s side must move on and think about the next encounter with Juventus. With over 70.000 fans at San Siro Milan vs Juventus will be the most watched semi-final in the history of Coppa Italia.

Stefano Pioli transformed the formation against Inter using 4-4-1-1 rather than the usual 4-4-2 and he will revolutionize the lineup again to 4-2-3-1 for Milan vs Juventus reports

Confirmed between the posts Gigio Donnarumma, despite the temporary physical problem suffered against Inter. At the center of the defense alongside captain Romagnoli, Pioli will have to resolve a big doubt between Kjaer and Musacchio with the Danish defender slightly in advantage. Davide Calabria will replace Andrea Conti on the right who is suspended with the indispensable Theo Hernandez on the left.

After a four-man midfield for many games, Stefano Pioli should halve the number of his ‘orthodox’ midfielders to favor a more offensive squad. Ismael Bennacer and Franck Kessie will start at the center with Hakan Calhanoglu in a more advanced position as attacking midfielder.

Unlike recent games, Samu Castillejo and Ante Rebic will play closer to Zlatan Ibrahimovic who again will lead the attack alone. The Swedish striker had struggled with fatigue but has fully recovered for Milan vs Juventus.

AC MILAN (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Calabria, Kjaer (Musacchio), Romagnoli, Theo; Bennacer, Kessie, Castillejo; Calhanoglu; Rebic; Ibrahimovic.

JUVENTUS (4-3-1-2): Buffon; Cuadrado, Bonucci, Rugani, Alex Sandro; Bentancur, Pjanic, Matuidi; Dybala; Ronaldo, Higuaìn.
