Milan vs Man Utd, probable lineups

AC Milan host Manchester United at San Siro tonight at 21:00 CET. The winner progresses in the next round of Europa League.

AC Milan vs Manchester United is the second leg of the Europa League round of 16. After the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, where the Rossoneri deserved the victory and can complain about the regular goal canceled at Kessie, the winner at San Siro will progress to the next round. A glorious match with Champions League flavor. Devils against Red Devils, the challenge is a special one. Coach Stefano Pioli recovers two key players like Ibrahimovic and Bennacer, even if they don’t have ninety minutes in their legs, but has lost four. Rafael Leao, Romagnoli, Calabria and Rebic will be absent.

CASTILLEJO FALSE 9 – Considering the situation Pioli has one big doubt for the attack. The supporting trio should be the one formed by Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu and Krunic. The situation is not clear regarding the centre forward role. The coach is oriented to make an experiment rather than risk Ibrahimovic from the first minute. It will be Samuel Caastillejo to lead the attack in the false 9 position.

KESSIE AND MEITE – In midfield Pioli will not give up on Kessie, author of a great performance in the first leg. Alongside him there will be one between Tonali and Meite, with the Frenchman favorite over the Italian. Bennacer will be on the bench ready to take over in the second half.

TOMORI AGAIN – Captain Romagnoli is still battling with an injury thus Fikayo Tomori will start again from the first minute alongside Simon Kjaer. Theo Hernandez, absent at Old Trafford, returns on the left. Diogo Dalot is in advantage over Pierre Kalulu who could be the surprise of AC Milan vs Manchester United. As usual, Gigio Donnarumma between the posts.

AC MILAN (4-2-3-1): G.Donnarumma; Dalot (Kalulu), Kjaer, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Meite, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Krunic; Castillejo.

MANCHESTER UNITED (4-2-3-1): Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Telles; Fred, McTominay; James, Fernandes, Rashford; Greenwood.
