Pioli facing big doubt for Juve-Milan
Coach Stefano Pioli is working on AC Milan’s upcoming Serie A match against Juventus with the name of the starting centre forward his biggest doubt.
On Sunday night, Juventus face AC Milan in another classic of Italian football. The Rossoneri need to bounce back after the Champions League defeat while the Bianconeri are still in search of their first victory in Serie A. For Juventus vs Milan, coach Stefano Pioli has a big doubt on who will be the one to lead the attack.
Tomorrow it will be understood whether Zlatan Ibrahimovic will recover in time for Sunday night’s match but the chances of seeing him on the pitch against Juventus are drastically low. Thus, Stefano Pioli must decide between Olivier Giroud and Ante Rebic.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that at the moment the Frenchman seems to have a slight advantage, even if it will not be easy for the AC Milan coach to leave Rebic out. The Croatian is one of the most fit Rossoneri players and arrives after two excellent performances. With Lazio he provided two assists while against Liverpool he scored one goal.
However, it must be noted that Rebic left the field at Anfield very tired and therefore it will be necessary to see how much energy he will recover until Sunday evening. For this reason, Giroud is in pole position to lead the AC Milan attack against Juventus.
The Frenchman, who was able to train at Milanello for about ten days due to Covid, obviously cannot be at his 100% yet, so it is likely that he will play the entire match. The other alternative is new signings Pietro Pellegri.
