Milan: Pioli’s only doubt ahead of Napoli

Stefano Pioli has reportedly already decided Milan’s line-up against Napoli: ‘He only has one doubt.’

The Italian coach will not sit on the Rossoneri’s bench on Sunday as he tested positive for Covid, just like his assistant Giacomo Murelli.

For this reason, former Milan defender Daniele Bonera will be in charge of the team during the 90 minutes at the San Paolo.

According to Sky Sport, the Rossoneri’s line-up has already been decided with Pioli who only has one doubt concerning the attacking trident.

Either Rafael Leao or Ante Rebic could start on the left. The Portuguese winger has three goals and just as much assists in the opening 10 Serie A games of the season.

Rebic picked up an elbow injury in Milan’s 2-0 away win at Crotone back in September but he has now recovered and is ready to start.

The 27-year-old scored 15 goals in 36 appearances in his first season at Milan.

The Croat is the favourite over Leao as the latter has been on international duty with Portugal. Pioli and his staff, however, have some days ahead to decide the XI that will face Napoli at the San Paolo.

That’s how Milan’s line-up should look like: Donnarumma; Calabria, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Theo; Kessie, Bennacer,  Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Rebic, Ibrahimovic.
