Piatek to be benched on the Napoli game?!
This weekend we are not going to see club football games, as there is pause for international football. After this pause AC Milan will return to play Serie A games, and this tame we are going to face Napoli on San Siro.
This game is scheduled for Saturday 23 November and it will start from 18:00 CET. What is interesting about this game is the fact that Krzysztof Piatek will most likely lose his place in the first XI. As our analysts confirm, Stefano Pioli believes that he gave enough chances to the Polish forward.
Pioli is no stranger to making changes, and we have already seen that he almost entirely restructured the midfield. Instead of Biglia, now Bennacer is regular. Paqueta took Kessie’s spot, while the left midfield role now belongs to Rade Krunic. All these changes have positive effect, which could have been seen on the game with Juventus.
Even though AC Milan lost the game, the team played good football, many would say best in the past few months. However the biggest issue for the team at this moment is the lack of goals. This is forcing Pioli to replace Piatek . As we understand Rafael Leao is set to take over the offensive role in AC Milan and fight for regular first team starting position.
We can remember that last season Piatek was unstoppable. However this season so far he is only shadow of the player we know. So far on 12 games he managed to scored only 3 goals. One of which was from the white spot.
