AC Milan team news ahead of Milan derby

Stefano Pioli will face a headache for the upcoming derby with the defense when most of the pillars are now facing different issues.

Fikayo Tomori will serve a one-match suspension after his second yellow card during the tough win over Roma before the international break.

Kalulu, who played 83 games in all competitions in the last two seasons for Milan, is racing against time to be at his best in terms of physics.

It is reported that the tests will be on Thursday or Friday to reveal whether the 23-year-old will feature in the back four of Milan in the derby.

Meanwhile, Olivier Giroud also has minor injuries, but it’s not as significant as his national teammate Kalulu.

If Kalulu is out, Pioli’s defense options will look relatively thin.

Former Schalke defender Malick Thiaw will undoubtedly start in central defense for the Rossoneri.
