Pioli revolutionizes Milan in the Italian Cup: Jimenez and Xhaka Traore from minute 1, possible lineup |  first page

With Milan's early exit from the Champions League at the group stage and a wide gap to league leaders Inter, the Coppa Italia becomes an opportunity to try to honor a season born with different expectations. The Rossoneri's last success in the national competition dates back 20 years ago, in the 2002/2003 season. The first challenger for Hernandez and his teammates will be Ranieri's Cagliari tomorrow night at the San Siro. Pioli is ready to completely revolutionize the starting lineup.

The first appearance in the program – The most important news in the squad relates to the first appearance of Jiménez from the first minute. He is a left winger born in 2005 who arrived last summer on loan with the right to buy for 5 million euros from Real Madrid. In fact, the Spaniard was supposed to make his debut against Monza in the tournament, but Okafor's injury forced Pioli to make another type of substitution. The defensive line will be completed with Simic and Theo in the middle, with Calabria on the right, while Miranti will defend the goal posts. In midfield we move towards the Adli-Reijnders duo with Romero deployed in attacking midfield. In attack alongside Jovic, there will be Chukwueze and Xhaka Traoré, who will also make their debut from the first minute.
