Milan has received another serious blow to Stefano Pioli’s plans before the challenge against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

The Reds have lost the services of English midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, one of the untouchable starters at this start of the season.

He had been one of the key points for the Milan coach in these first weeks of the season, but from the 29th minute of the match against Lazio, when he left the field of play in despair, it was clear that Pioli had to start thinking to substitute.

Without him, Krunic and Bennacer, the coach has a headache regarding the “muscles” in the midfield and the alternatives for three jerseys are very few.

The coach of Milan, Stefano Pioli will have only four alternatives for the midfield such as Adli, Musah, Pobega and Reijnders.

The coach must first choose which of them will play in front of the defense, to then determine who will be the most advanced in this department, in a very important challenge where a wrong step can be fatal in the “group of hell” of the Champions League.
