After Friday night’s disastrous defeat to Napoli, Stefano Pioli is set to make changes for Sunday’s encounter with Genoa.
The coach has reached the conclusion that veteran striker Rodrigo Palacio should be recalled, which could see the Argentine face his former club.
In which formation the Nerazzurri play with El Trenza back in the starting XI though?
Rome-based Corriere dello Sport speculate that a 4-4-2 (4-2-2-2) with two offensive midfielders is plausible. This means Icardi-Palacio would be supported by Candreva and one of Éder or Perišić.
On the other hand, a 3-5-2 line-up is not to be ruled out at this stage.
