According to Sky via Sempre Milan, Stefano pIoli is going to bench Rafael Leao for his first game in charge in favour of Piatek and Ante Rebic. The manager is expected to line up as a 4-3-3 with Suso playing as the right winger and Paqueta, Kessie and Biglia anchoring the midfield. Rebic is yet to start a game for Milan thus this could be his big break.
It will be disappointing to see Leao on the bench once again as he has more than proven his worth in his few cameos and could use this game to boost his confidence and his numbers.
