AC Milan coach Pioli expecting 'aggressive' Hellas Verona

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli expects a major test against Hellas Verona.

Milan secured a 3-2 win against Atalanta in the last match before the international break and Pioli wants to build on the good performance in Bergamo.

“The team has not forgotten the last performance. We met yesterday, but we have a clear idea of what we had on the pitch in Bergamo," he said.

“We face a similar opponent in terms of aggression, so we must deliver a technical performance but also use a lot of energy physically."

Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to training yesterday, while Olivier Giroud will be back in the squad.

“He is better, since yesterday he has been training with us," Pioli continued. “I think tomorrow morning's training will be important, then we will decide if he will be called up or not.

“His conditions are improving. [Olivier] Giroud has made good use of the break, he's certainly better and is available tomorrow.
