Pioli said his players had shown a pretty good game against Rennes.

“The team played well, but it was not easy against a Rennes team that was very dangerous on the counter-attack and in good form,” explained Pioli.

According to him, the 3-0 capital in the first leg was an advantage. However, he said, Milan should not be careless.

“It's an advantage for us, but we know anything can happen in football and we have to concentrate fully on the second leg,” he said.

Facing Rennes, Stefano Pioli will not be able to rely on Pierre Kalulu or Fikayo Tomori. Likewise Mattia Caldara.

Tommaso Pobega and Davide Calabria remain sidelined with muscle problems, while Jan-Carlo Simic and Alex Jimenez are also not on the squad list.

In front of goalkeeper Mike Maignan, there is Simon Kjaer who will be paired again with Matteo Gabbia because against Monza, Malick Thiaw showed he was not 100%. Alessandro Florenzi and Theo Hernandez will remain as wing-backs.

In midfield there will be the return of Tijjani Reijnders from the first minute. He will take on the role of attacking midfielder, while Yunus Musah returns and will play a deeper role alongside Ismael Bennacer who has passed a fitness test.
