Towards the derby, Pioli studies three hypotheses to replace Hernández

We are before the Milan derby and it is time to refine the formations that will oppose on Sunday San Siro. According to the latest, the line-up is practically done at Milan, with the exception of one big doubt.

Theo Hernandez will not be in the match, due to disqualification. But who should replace him is not much better off than him: Fodé Ballo-Touré he still has pain in his left ankle and is not at all sure of recovering. Pioli, therefore, navigates in the emergency; an emergency to be fought through these three roads.

The first would involve the use of Pierre Kalulu in the left-handed lane; the second would guarantee a place for the young full-back French, but on the opposite side, of its competence. At that point the flaw on the left wing would be covered by Davide Calabria, which would also be confirmed if Pioli were to opt for a third hypothesis: that of proposing again Romagnoli between the holder.

Captain ac milanista he would make up a sort of “three and a half” defense, alongside Kjær and Tomori, positioning himself on the left. An intriguing move, but balanced, as it would allow all players to occupy appropriate positions on the pitch. Especially in the case of Calabria, which would act as a lower right winger.
