AC Milan will attempt to close the gap between themselves and Inter and Juventus as they travel to the Stadio Arechi to face Salernitana on Matchday 17 of the 2023/24 Serie A campaign, and rejoin the title race.
After the Bianconeri dropped two points against Genoa on Matchday 16, the Rossoneri recorded a comprehensive 3-0 win over Monza and are now within five points of the Turin giants, who sit in second, but still have some way to recover the nine-point chasm from the Nerazzurri.
Salernitana vs AC Milan: Predicted line-ups
The return of captain Davide Calabria should see coach Stefano Pioli revert to his preferred 4-3-3 system, after being forced to play a 3-4-3 formation that helped release the attacking powers of flying full-back Theo Hernandez.
However, that will also depend on Simon Kjaer be available for selection in the middle of defence, after playing 67 minutes against the Biancorossi.
The Granata continue to be without key man Guillermo Ochoa between the goalposts and captain Federico Fazio, while defensive-midfielder Giulio Maggiore is suspended. The influential Emil Bohinen returns to the starting XI, but could spend much of the game heading in the opposite direction.
Salernitana predicted XI vs AC Milan (4-3-2-1): Costil; Daniliuc, Gyomber, Pirola, Mazzocchi; Bohinen, Legowski, Coulibaly; Candreva, Cabral; Dia.
AC Milan predicted XI vs Salernitana (4-3-3): Maignan; Calabria, Tomori, Kjaer, Hernandez; Loftus-Cheek, Reijnders, Musah; Pulisic, Giroud, Leao.
