AC Milan Take On Torino At The San Siro As Pioli Welcomes Three Back

An important opportunity for more of the first team to get a shot at stabilising our defensive performances.

AC Milan take on Torino tonight at the San Siro as Stefano Pioli welcomes back three players to the squad. Theo Hernandez, Franck Kessie and Pietro Pellegri return while Samu Castillejo misses out alongside Ante Rebic. Milan are taking on a Torino side with some confidence as they have a tough fought win against Genoa from the weekend following losses to Napoli and Juventus prior. Milan will likely see some changes to the starting line up as Romagnoli, Kessie, Saelemaekers and Giroud will probably start switching up from the previous game.

Milan will need to be particularly wary of Pobega and Sanabria who looked red hot in the previous tie as the defence needs time to adjust and settle down after a tumultuous spell. This will be a tight encounter for us as we look to take advantage of our pace to dominate them on the wings.

Expected Line Up (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu, Calabria, Tomori, Romagnoli, Ballo-Toure, Kessie, Tonali, Saelemaekers, Krunic, Leao, Giroud.
