Milan are preparing for their upcoming clash against Torino this weekend, and according to the latest reports, David Beckham is set to start on the bench for the third consecutive match.
Corriere dello Sport believes that the
coach Carlo Ancelotti is keen to field a similar starting eleven from the side
that just got over the line against Chievo 1-0 last weekend.
With this in mind, Beckham is a definite
to start on the bench, whilst the hero from their most recent outing, Clarence
Seedorf, will be given another opportunity to play from the start.
The Los Angeles Galaxy player is contracted to Milan for the rest of the Serie A season, but his playing time has been drastically reduced.
Andrea Pirlo and Massimo Ambrosini will
play alongside Seedorf in the midfield, whilst Alexandre Pato, Pippo Inzaghi
and Kaka will be utilized in the attacking positions.
The Rossoneri have a few concerns at the
back however, as Marek Jankulovski will miss through suspension, whilst his
usual replacement in Luca Antonini is out injured.
It is rumoured that Ancelotti will play
the veteran Giuseppe Favalli on the left, with Paolo Maldini and Philippe
Senderos in the middle, and Gianluca Zambrotta on the right. Dida will
obviously take his place in goal once again, after his impressive performance
