According to La Gazzetta Dello Sports, Croatian duo Rebic and Mandzukic will play against Lazio tonight with Ibrahimovic injured.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss Milan-Lazio due to injury and Mario Mandzukic will be leading the attack ahead of Rafael Leao who has been disappointing in recent weeks. The Croatian international will be fielded alongside compatriot Ante Rebic who will be starting on the left side of Milan’s attack.
The Rossoneri will have to defeat the Biancocelesti if they are to regain the second spot from Atalantaafter last week’s loss to Sassuolo at the San Siro. In this decisive moment of the season, Mario Mandzukic’s experience will be needed by Milan despite not being 100% yet. On a technical level, the former Bayern striker is the player who resembles Ibrahimovic as well as in attitude.
Mario will need the support of his teammates especially his Croatian compatriot Ante Rebic who will have to create chances for him to be decisive in the absence of Ibrahimovic.
