Sky: Pioli to make unexpected change in attack

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli will launch Brahim Diaz from the first minute against Juventus, according to Sky Sport.

Tomorrow evening, AC Milan will be playing the most important match of the season. Beating Juventus in the direct match tomorrow would mean leaving behind a direct rival and setting a foot in the next edition of the Champions League.

According to Sky Sport, for the first time in many months, Pioli will have the entire squad under his orders except Samuel Castillejo (suspended). The Italian coach is studying the last details of the match and according to Sky Sports he will make an important change for Juve vs Milan.

Pioli is considering an unexpected formation change launching Brahim Diaz from the first minute. The inclusion of the Spaniard in attack hints at the formation transition from the usual 4-2-3-1 to a hidden 4-4-2. 

The presence of Brahim Diaz in the starting lineup confirms what was rumored in the last days. Both Rafael Leao and Ante Rebic will stay on the bench for Juve-Milan. Initially it was thought that at least one between the Portuguese and the Croatian would start against Juve on the left wing but Pioli is leaning towards a third choice.

The last doubt concerns the defence. Pioli must choose one between Alessio Romagnoli and Fikayo Tomori as the partner of Simon Kjaer. The speed and physical strength of the former Chelsea could be more useful than the experience of the former Roma player who suffered greatly against Chiesa and Morata in the first leg.
