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

With an early exit from the Champions League in the group stage and a wide distance from Inter at the top of the standings, the Coppa Italia becomes an opportunity for Milan 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.

First appearance in the table – The most important news in the squad relates to the first appearance of Jimenez 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.
