Di Marzio: Mandzukic sustains muscle injury and will miss important derby

By Isak Möller -

Ahead of the training session this morning, which is the final one ahead of the derby tomorrow, Milan were forced to add a new name to the injury list: Mario Manzukic will miss out due to a muscle injury. 

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the No.9 is struggling from a muscle injury that will prevent him from taking part in the derby tomorrow. After his first game from start on Thursday, therefore, he will miss out on this one.

In addition to Mandzukic, Ismael Bennacer and Brahim Diaz are already on the injury list and although two of them aren’t starters, it affects the depth on the bench. Another frustrating update for Stefano Pioli, in other words.

The game is scheduled for 15:00 CET and Milan are the designated home side, hoping to make it 2/2 in the league this season. Although derbies are riotously hard to predict, Inter are the favourites to win, but you never know.
