Players[edit]

Squad information[edit]

Starting line-up. Before Alexandre Pato joined A.C. Milan, Filippo Inzaghi used to be the striker usually playing along with Alberto Gilardino in the occasions Carlo Ancelotti chose to play 4–3–1–2. In a more defensive and quite frequently used tactical disposition there used to be a single forward (Inzaghi, Gilardino or, after his arrival at the club, Pato) and five midfielders.
