GdS: Probable XIs for Inter vs. Milan – Ibrahimovic and Tomori expected to miss out

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is set to be without Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Fikayo Tomori for tomorrow’s derby clash against Inter, a report claims.

According to this morning’s edition of the newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport (as seen below), Milan should line up with Mike Maignan in goal, then a back four formed of Davide Calabria, Pierre Kalulu, Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez from right to left. Fikayo Tomori is not expected to recover in time to take Kalulu’s place.

In the midfield it is a double pivot of Ismael Bennacer and Sandro Tonali which is set to get the nod, and Franck Kessie is tipped to play in place of Brahim Diaz as the playmaker just as he did in the win over Empoli when he netted a brace.

Junior Messias is expected to be on the right wing and Rafael Leao on the left wing behind the centre-forward Olivier Giroud, as Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not expected to win his battle against time to get rid of his tendon problem.

Probable Milan XI (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kalulu, Romagnoli, Theo; Tonali, Bennacer; Saelemaekers, Kessie, Leao; Giroud.

Probable Inter XI (3-5-2): Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Dumfries, Brozovic, Barella, Calhanoglu, Perisic; Lautaro, Dzeko.

      1. that is the way to go, have my doubts with Bennacer, Kessie is better than him. Have no clue why Messias was even mentioned in the transcript. You want to step on their throat from the first touch.

  1. Every derby we are missing some important players and inter merda is always full squad.They even bring referees with them.

  2. Yes that’s a brilliant line up ,and perfect for Giroud .
    It’s going to be a great match ,and one that we can win…The best is yet to come from Giroud and this team …I have complete confidence in him ,and this line up ….bring it on …

  3. Where are you? Rebic the master for all time, the super scorer and a player with full confidence without afraid the opponent

  4. Broz, Lautaro, and Vidal all on yellows, getting one more on them will even help us for their next match against Napoli, we meed to step on thier throats at every opportunity. As to Theo who’s on a yellow, Pioli needs to make him captain to cool his temper, we need him next game
