15.06 – Milan are preparing to play against Dinamo Zagreb. Pioli’s team will have to pay attention to the yellow cards, in fact there are three players who are warned even if only two risk missing the last match against Salzburg: one of these is in fact Tomori who, by virtue of the red remedied in the last home match with Chelsea he will not play at Maksimir tomorrow. The suspects present in Zagreb are Krunic and Ballo-Tourè.
14.53 – Ante Rebic, interviewed by SportMediaset, spoke thus in view of the match against Dinamo Zagreb:
On his emotions in returning to play in Croatia: “I don’t have many emotions, I come from the south of Croatia. Here I have many friends, but for me it is a match like any other”.
On the match: “They have not lost for many months at home. They have also beaten strong teams here. We know what awaits us, we have prepared well and therefore we hope to bring home the three points.”
On Dinamo’s strengths: “They play at home and will have more confidence in the match in Milan. But nothing changes for us, we want to win and go through.”
On his moment: “It would be nice to decide the game, but the important thing is to win. It doesn’t change anything for me to play from the first minute or enter a game in progress, I always give my best.”
14.14 – The Pole Szymon Marciniak will referee the match between Dinamo Zagreb and Milan, valid for the fifth day of the group stage of the Champions League and scheduled for today at 21 in Croatia; this is the second time for him with the Rossoneri: the first and only was last year, when Tonali and his teammates lost 3-2 at Anfield with a goal disallowed for offside to Kjaer and a penalty awarded to the Reds at the hands of Bennacer.

11.10 – AC Milan’s defensive emergency continues, which tonight against Dinamo Zagreb will have to do without, in addition to Maignan, also Calabria, Florenzi, Dest and Tomori (the first three are injured, the Englishman is instead disqualified).

09.39 – The great doubt of Stefano Pioli’s formation, as often happens this season, is on the trocar where there are three players in the ballot for a shirt, namely De Ketelaere, Krunic or Diaz: according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the favorite for starting from the first minute is the young Belgian playmaker.
09.09 – According to reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport on newsstands this morning, Brahim Diaz, who suffered a contracture in his left buttock on Saturday against Monza, will test today in Zagreb to see if he can at least go to the bench in the Champions League match against Dynamo.
