Piatek to be benched against Genoa?!
Krzysztof Piatek’s position in AC Milan’s XI team is not guaranteed. After the first 6 games, Piatek did not managed to score goal from active play. This is one of the reasons, why the young Rafael Leao will most likely start as main forward this Saturday.
This season Piatek managed to score only 2 goals in the first 6 games. This would not be that bad if they were scored by active play. However Krzysztof scored both goals from the white spot. Rafael Leao on the other side impressed on every chance he got. This was shown especially in the last game with Fiorentina, where Rafael scored outstanding solo goal. This is why it is Piatek is expected to be benched.
The game with Genoa this Saturday, it is expected Rafael to lead AC Milan’s front line. While support to him will be provided by Suso and Ante Rebic . This will be the first game in long period in which Piatek will not play from the first minute.
