AC Milan face a tough test in the new campaign tonight as the Rossoneri take on Lazio at the San Siro to a sold out stadium (40,000 fans). Stefano Pioli has called up the entire squad for the game but Olivier Giroud will be the notable absence whilst Franck Kessie and Zlatan Ibrahimovic make their returns. Ne3ws signings Tiemoue Bakayoko and Pietro Pellegri were called up but will be on the bench while Rade Krunic is excluded as a precaution due to his injury over the international break.

Pioli will make three big changes for this game as Ante Rebic is set to start at striker and Alessandro Florenzi on the right wing. Romagnoli replaces Simon Kjaer while Kessie replaces Ismael Bennacer from the start. The game is a good opportunity to test the depth of the squad and see some new faces but a win is absolutely needed to gain some early momentum for the season.

Expected Line Up (4-2-3-1): Maignan, Calabria, Tomori, Romagnoli, Hernandez, Tonali, Kessie, Florenzi, Diaz, Leao, Rebic.
