The victories against Torino and Tottenham have restored morale to an environment, the Rossoneri one, which risked sinking into a negative vortex after the four consecutive defeats collected in recent weeks. And Milan, now, is looking for new confirmations in the match against Monza, scheduled for Saturday 18 February at 6 pm at the U-Power Stadium. A match full of pitfalls, given that the Serie A, in 2023, has never lost in the championship, collecting three wins and four draws in seven meetings. The Devil, however, needs to collect the entire stakes in order not to lose ground in the Champions League fight, with Stefano Pioli’s men currently in third place in the standings at 41 along with Atalanta and Roma. The Red & Whites, with their 29 points, are ninth and aim to leapfrog Udinese and Torino, who are just one length above.
Monza vs Milan, Palladino’s choices
Palladino, for the challenge against Milan, will rely on that 3-4-2-1 that has done so well in recent outings. At the center of the attack, there will still be space for Petagna, with Caprari and Pessina acting behind the former Napoli. In the middle of the field, Sensi is in the control room with Rovella at his side, with the outer lanes manned on the right by Ciurria and on the left by Donati (out Carlos Augusto). The ballot in defense between Caldirola and Marlon to complete the department with Pablo Marì and Izzo.
Monza vs Milan, Pioli’s choices
Pioli seems to have found new certainties with the 3-4-2-1, a form that will also be proposed with Monza. In defense confirmed Thiaw after the excellent test offered against Tottenham: together with him Kjaer and Kalulu. In the middle of the field, with Bennacer still not at his best, there will be space for Krunic alongside Tonali, with Hernandez on the left and Saelemaekers on the right (Calabria out). At the center of the attack will be Giroud, supported by Diaz and Leao. Ready to make his season debut during the second half Ibrahimovic.
Monza vs Milan, the probable formations
Monza (3-4-2-1): Di Gregorio; Caldirola, Pablo Marì, Izzo; Ciurria, Rovella, Sensi, Donati; Pessina, Caprari; Petagna. All. Palladino
Milan (3-4-2-1): Tatarusanu; Kalulu, Kjaer, Thiaw; Saelemaekers, Krunic, Tonali, Hernandez; Diaz, Leao; Giroud. All. Pegs
