After the narrow but well-deserved 2: 3 bankruptcy at Liverpool FC, the next top game is coming up for AC Milan this weekend. On Sunday evening (8:45 p.m.) the Rossoneri will be playing at Juventus Turin, but will have to do without three stars.
After Zlatan Ibrahimovic had to skip the CL opener against the Reds due to an Achilles tendon irritation, the Serie A hit against Juve also comes too early for the 39-year-old. As if that weren’t bitter enough, Milan also have to do without Olivier Giroud, who is out due to back problems.
Stefano Pioli confirmed on Saturday that the two center forwards will not be in the squad against Juve. Thus, Ante Rebic, against Liverpool with goal and template, should again form the top of the Rossoneri.
In addition to the two attackers, Davide Calabria will also be out. Italian media unanimously report that the right-back sustained a minor muscle injury during training. The exact diagnosis is still pending, but its absence is certain.
Three extremely bitter failures for the Rossoneri, who also have to do without the reservists Tiemoue Bakayoko and Rade Krunic.
The probable list is as follows:
Maignan – Florenzi, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez – Kessie, Tonali – Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leao – Rebic
