MN: Pioli considers rotation ahead of Bologna game amid demanding schedule
AC Milan are currently in the middle of a very demanding period that will see them play seven games in 22 days, meaning Stefano Pioli is looking at some rotation options.
Ahead of Saturday night’s match against Bologna at the Stadio Dall’Ara, MilanNews reports that Pioli is considering the option of resting Fikayo Tomori. Alessio Romagnoli would stand in for the Englishman as happened Tuesday night at the Estadio Dragao against Porto where Tomori gave some small signs of fatigue, despite being one of the better players on the night.
There is also a selection dilemma in midfield as it must be decided whether Sandro Tonali or Ismael Bennacer will make room for Franck Kessie who is back after being suspended on Tuesday night.
In attack, Rafael Leao will start on the left while Rade Krunic and Alexis Saelemaekers could have their spot threatened by Daniel Maldini and Samu Castillejo as the playmaker and right winger respectively.
There is a possible battle between Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the centre-forward role as both need to play and put more minutes in their legs, with the Frenchman being ahead at the moment.
