AC Milan take on Atalanta for another huge test for new manager Stefano Pioli as the Bergamo side are challenging for Champions League spots. Milan will be without their top scorer Theo Hernandez as he picked up too many yellow cards and will be suspended for the game. Switzerland international Ricardo Rodriguez is expected to start in his place.
Probable lineup vs. Atalanta (4-3-3):— Milan Eye (@MilanEye) December 21, 2019
Donnarumma; Conti, Musacchio, Romagnoli, Rodriguez; Kessie, Bennacer, Bonaventura; Suso, Piatek, Calhanoglu [@DiMarzio]
As we reported, Rodriguez is expected to leave Milan in the January transfer window as he has sold his Milan apartment and feels replaced by Hernandez. The squad will otherwise look the same as the previous three games.
