Serie A Preview | Spezia vs. Milan: Maldini starting?

by | Sep 24, 2021 19:01

Milan continue with a trip to Spezia and Stefano Pioli should make some changes ahead of a busy week, with a possible start for Daniel Maldini.

The Rossoneri continue to keep up the pace in Serie A 2021-22 and sit second, tied on points with Inter, after five games.

Pioli could give Brahim Diaz some rest against the Aquilotti, as Maldini was tried as an attacking midfielder in training.

Olivier Giroud has recovered and should be in the squad, but Ante Rebic is expected to continue up front.

Spezia arrive after a great performance in a 3-2 defeat to Juventus and Thiago Motta wants more of the same when the Diavolo arrive in Liguria.

But the former midfielder Motta has not recovered any of the injured players and hopes for continuity from the players available.

    Interesting. I don’t mind Pioli giving Maldini a chance.
