AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is pondering his selection choices ahead of Sunday night’s game against Juventus, with some team news now emerging.

According to what is being reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Mike Maignan will be the goalkeeper for the Rossoneri with Alessandro Florenzi keeping his spot at right-back as Davide Calabria has spent a few months out and is not quite at 100%. Pierre Kalulu retains his place at centre-back with Alessio Romagnoli returning after Covid, and Theo Hernandez on the left.

Sandro Tonali is back from suspension to take up a place in the double pivot again with Tiemoue Bakayoko expected to get the nod as well over Rade Krunic. The attacking midfielder ahead of them will be Brahim Diaz, with the Bosnian therefore relegated to the bench.

Regarding the attack, Alexis Saelemaekers and the in-form Rafael Leao should occupy the wings and Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the man who the paper think will lead the line over Olivier Giroud.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Florenzi, Kalulu, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Tonali, Bakayoko; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leao; Ibrahimovic.

Probable Juventus XI (3-5-2): Szczesny; Cuadrado, De Ligt, Chiellini; Pellegrini; Bentancur, Locatelli; McKennie, Dybala, Bernardeschi; Morata.
