AC Milan will look to bounce back to winning ways at home against Genoa albeit behind closed doors. Stefano Pioli will run with his 4-4-1-1 but will slightly modify it to resemble a 4-2-3-1. Thus Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer will anchor the midfield lower down the pitch. Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be the lone striker. He will be supported by three attacking midfielder in Samu Castillejo, Hakan Calhanoglu and Ante Rebic.
Probable lineup vs. Genoa (4-2-3-1): Begovic; Conti, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Kessiè, Bennacer; Castillejo, Calhanoglu, Rebic; Ibrahimovic— Milan Eye (@MilanEye) March 6, 2020
Andre Conti is set to return to the starting lining up alongside Theo Hernandez on the flanks. Alessio Romagnoli and Simon Kjaer will be the two centre backs. Asmir Begovic will look to get his first start as Donnarumma is still injured.
