Inter Milan vs AC Milan: Team News
Both teams are reported to be having no injury problem, and they are expected to field their strongest possible teams in the upcoming Milan derby. The biggest bet for Milan is their 17-year old goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, who will be guarded by a strong defence line-up comprising Matteo de Sciglio and Alessio Romagnoli. They have a strong defence which will give Inter Milan a real trouble to find a goal. Up front Carlos Bacca, who is currently going through a goal drought, possesses the biggest threat for Inter defence. Suso and M’Baye Niang do provide him with enough support when he is not in form. So it actually looks like a formidable side for the upcoming AC Milan vs Inter Milan encounter.
Inter, on the other side, have a clinical goalscorer in Mauro Icardi, who has picked up 10 goals and 12 assists this season. Ever Banega, Ivan Perisic and Marcelo Brozovic are also there in the team which makes the team look quite sharp on paper. However, their biggest problem is their consistency. Whether they will manage to get over this problem to win this Milan derby remains to be seen.
The latest news has revealed that dependable defender Romagnoli is a doubtful starter for AC Milan after he pulled a muscle during the international break while playing for his country. And it seems that Gustavo Gomez will be handed the opportunity to handle the Inter forward line in the absence of Romagnoli. Also, Carlos Bacca has sustained an injury which has made him a doubtful starter for AC Milan in the upcoming AC Milan vs Inter Milan encounter.
It has been reported that D’Ambrosio will be making a start ahead of Nagamoto in the back line. He got a start in the last Serie A match for Inter but it seems that he might be replaced for this match. Candreva is also expected to make a start for Inter in this upcoming Milan derby ahead of Martins.
AC Milan (probable starting line-up): Donnarumma, Paletta, Abate, De Sciglio, Gomez, Kucka, Pasalic, Locatelli, Bonaventura, Carlos Bacca and Suso
