Preparations are continuing for AC Milan’s final game of the season against Sassuolo on Sunday and Stefano Pioli is not expected to make big changes.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) report how the entire squad are available at Pioli’s disposal apart from Kjaer, and the Milan boss seems willing to put faith again in the same starting line-up from the last two league games against Verona and Atalanta.
Mike Maignan will be in goal again with Davide Calabria, Pierre Kalulu, Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez as the back four ahead of him. Then, the double pivot of Sandro Tonali and Franck Kessie should be chosen again, with Ismael Bennacer ready to come off the bench.
Rafael Leao is very sure of a starting spot as well as centre-forward Olivier Giroud, who could be replaced by Ante Rebic as happened in the second half against Atalanta. Rade Krunic and Alexis Saelemaekers are also leading the race to start even if Junior Messias still hopes to get the nod.
Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Hernandez; Kessie, Tonali; Saelemaekers, Krunic, Leao; Giroud.
