MilanNews.it via Sempre Milan are reporting that AC Milan will line up with Calhanoglu, Leao and Suso as the attacking trident while Paqueta finally gets the nod to start at left midfield this season. The rest of the team is projected to remain the same while Conti will replace the suspended Calabria.
The reports are conflicting prior projections that expected Piatek and Rebic to start. What remains clear is the fact that there is some secrecy arounf Pioli's opening line up and media houses are simply peddling rumours. Look out for the confirmed line up tomorrow and let's hope for a flying start.
