Milan are left with a shell of a squad in one of the most important games of the season, hopefully Pioli inspires a good performance regardless.

AC Milan via their website have announced that two players have tested psotive for the coronavirus just a few hours ahead of the title defining clash with Juventus at the San Siro. Milan's attacker Ante Rebic and midfielder Rade Krunic tested positive in the most recent round of tests thus have been ruled out of the game and will be sidelined for two weeks or so. The players are both asymptomatic and the rest of the squad tested negative.

This leaves Milan with a thin squad to face Juventus this evening as Milan have four starters ruled out in Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ismael Bennacer, Alexis Saelemaekers and Ante Rebic but is also missing all the midfield depth as Sandro Tonali is suspended and Rade Krunic is now out. Centre back Matteo Gabbia is also out with an injury.

Juventus are set to miss Alex Sandro and Juan Cuadrado who also tested positive for the coronavirus while striker Alvaro Morata will miss the game due to injury.

Milan expected line up for the game is now likely to be:

Donnarumma, Calabria, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Hernandez, Kessie, Calhanoglu, Castillejo, Diaz, Hauge, Leao.
