Milan vs Lille, probable lineups

AC Milan face Lille for the third group stage match of Europa League with coach Pioli aiming to make several changes.

Tonight at 21:00 CET, AC Milan host Lille as the San Siro for the third round of Europa League group stage. A win in Milan vs Lille would practically mean securing qualification for the next stage. Coach Stefano Pioli, as in recent games, is planning a rotation for this match.

There will be several changes compared to the last match against Udinese but Milan will not lose their appearance. It will certainly be an opportunity to review Diogo Dalot who will replace Davide Calabria. The Portuguese defender may end up being the only change in the back four with Romagnoli and Kjaer set to form the central duo and Theo on the left.

Sandro Tonali return to play from the first minute in Milan vs Lille. As usual the young Italian midfielder is the regular starter in Europa League. The former Empoli will play alongside Franck Kessie. Up front coach Pioli has a couple of doubts.

Samu Castillejo will play on the right wing with Alexis Saelemaekers  being left out of the match squad to rest reports Sky. Dubious situation on the left wing with Ante Rebic eager to return on the pitch after an injury. At the moment Pioli seems oriented to play Rade Krunic as attacking midfielder and Brahim Diaz on the wing.

AC Milan vs Lille is a very special match for Rafael Leao who faces his old club. Zlatan Ibrahimovic was supposed to be rested for this match leaving the Portuguese striker to lead the attack but it seems like once again Ibra will play from the first minute.

AC MILAN (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Dalot, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Theo, Tonali-Kessie; Castillejo, Brahim Diaz, Krunic (Rebic); Ibrahimovic (Leao)

LILLE (4-4-2): Maignan; Celik, Soumaoro, Botman, Bradaric; Ikoné, André, Soumaré, Bamba; Yazici, David.
