Milan need to keep their focus and put this game to bed as we often struggled with the smaller teams.

AC Milan face newly promoted side Venezia this evening at the San Siro as the Rossoneri look to get back to winning ways following their 1-1 draw with Juventus in Turin at the weekend. The Rossoneri will face a familiar face in Mattia Caldara but Stefano Pioli is planning to rotate the squad to rest some key players and due to the injury crisis.

Ibrahimovic and Giroud will once again not be called up for the game which presents an opportunity for Pietro Pellegri’s debut but also lumps pressure on Rebic to deliver the goals. Florenzi and Bennacer are set to start over Saelemaekers and Kessie as technical decisions.

Kalulu, Gabbia and Romagnoli will start in defence as Calabria and Kjaer have injuries and Tomori is to be rested in this game while Hernandez starts as usual. Tonali has become the pillar in the midfield and will start as normal.

Expected Line Up (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Kalulu, Gabbia, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Tonali, Bennacer; Florenzi, Diaz, Leao; Rebic.
