The Derby della Madonnina is tonight and the AC Milan team of head coach Stefano Pioli will take on Inter at the San Siro to see who will get the bragging rights. The derby game is always exciting for football fans as millions of people will be watching.
The cousins take on each other in what will be a very difficult game. It will be challenging and demanding physically.
There will be many duels especially in the central area of the pitch. That is where games are played and won. The Rossoneri team should be very careful when facing Brozovic and his teammates. Every loose ball should be fought for and the Croatian defensive midfielder must be pressured a lot in order to not let him have too much space.
Theo Hernandez and Rafael Leao will be key for Stefano Pioli. Their flair and speed is obviously needed and the fans hope that the Portuguese left-winger in particular finds his peak level tonight as he has the ability to create chaos against the defensive department of Simone Inzaghi. Central forward Olivier Giroud will also be waiting to poach any opportunity he can get. This time, however, the forward will hopefully be well supported by 21-year-old Charles De Keteleaere who should start his first ever Derby della Madonnina.
If the Belgian talent proves to be in a good form, he will pose many attacking threats to the Nerazzurri. He has great vision and decent physical strength which can allow him to become a deciding factor.
This is the possible lineup for head coach Stefano Pioli today:
4-2-3-1: Maignan; Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Theo Hernandez; Bennacer, Tonali; Messias, De Ketelaere, Leao; Giroud.
As for the visitors, here are the possible choices of Simone Inzaghi:
3-5-2: Handanovic, Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Dumfries, Barella, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Darmian; Martinez, Correa
