Mandzukic was subbed in the game against Atalanta last night and immediately entered the climate of the match. He had around twenty minutes of game time.
According to today's edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Mandzukic is a candidate to start the derby against Inter in the Coppa Italia with Ibrahimovic at the same time in order to raise the morale of the group. Besides, due to Kalulu's injury, Musacchio could carve out some space for himself in the coming games.
Stefano Pioli and his squad will be looking to bounce back from the latest defeat and redeem themselves in the cup competition with a win against the city rivals Inter.
