Milan-Borussia Dortmund, the probable formations

AC Milan receives Borussia Dortmund in the fifth round of the Champions League. Kickoff at 9 p.m. at the San Siro. The Rossoneri must score a victory if they want to earn access to the round of 16. At that point they could even afford a defeat in the last match with Newcastle, provided PSG wins with Newcastle and does not lose to Borussia on the last day. On the other hand, the Germans want to keep the top of Group F.

Pioli does not recover Leao: there will still be Pulisic in his place, with Chukwueze on the other side and Loftus-Cheek completing the trident in the three-quarter behind Giroud's only point. Midfield dike formed by Reijnders and Krunic, defense headed by Tomori and Thiaw.

Terzic relies on Fullkrug in attack, supported by the Reus-Brandt-Bynoe-Gittens trident. Midfield formed by Can and Sabitzer, full-backs will act Ryerson and Bensebaini.

Probable lineups

MILAN (4-2-3-1): Maignan, Calabria, Thiaw, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Krunic, Reijnders; Chukweuze, Loftus-Cheek, Pulisic; Giroud. All. Pioli.

BORUSSIA DORTMUND (4-2-3-1): Kobel; Ryerson, Hummel, Schlotterbeck, Bensebaini; Emre Can, Sabitzer; Reus, Brandt, Bynoe-Gittens; Fulkrug. Coach: Terzic.
