MILAN – Milan have restarted the season in a great way. First he imposed 0-0 to Juventus in the Italian Cup , then he won in goleada on the Lecce field in the championship . But now comes Roma, a direct competitor for a place in Europe.
Everyone wonders about Zlatan Ibrahimovic's physical condition . Will there be or won't there be against Roma? 90% will not be …
It is true that the Swede is recovering quickly from his injury but it is equally true that his return is more likely against Spal or Lazio.
Losing a player of this level for a direct match is a big problem but the Rossoneri have shown that they can do well even without appealing to the game of Pioli.
Given that the absence of the Swede is at least probable, let's see how Milan would face Roma without the former Los Angeles Galaxy champion.
Milan-Rome, there is no Ibra. Here's what Pioli could do.
The Rossoneri manager could re-propose what he saw against Juventus or against Lecce. An aggressive team, fast, which does not give reference points to opponents. With fake nine and lots of quality in the middle of the field.
So Milan should try to undermine the yellow and red certainties with the 4-4-1-1. There are still days left so Pioli hasn't decided everything yet and there are several ballots. Let's analyze the situation below.
The presence of Donnarumma is mandatory between the posts. Then the four-man defense should be made up of Conti, Romagnoli, Gabbia and Theo Hernandez. In midfield there should be three ballots for four roles.
One should play between Saelemaekers and Castillejo, one between Paqueta and Kessie and one between Bonaventura and Biglia. Bennacer, on the other hand, is an immovable holder right now.
Another certain of a shirt is Calhanoglu, a footballer who has convinced him as a midfielder. In attack, instead of Ibra, there is a ballot between Rebic and Leao.
