AC Milan need a response against Inter in the cup derby tomorrow night and if they are to get a good result then Olivier Giroud will have to be at his best.
MilanNews writes how Giroud will once again be entrusted with the task of leading the Rossoneri attack given that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still out and aims to return in the league against Napoli.
More is expected from the hero of the last derby as the Frenchman scored a decisive brace to reopen the Scudetto race, but against Udinese and Salernitana he paid a heavy price for static performances.
The 35-year-old has not scored in three consecutive matches and given that he is the second-top scorer in the squad with 10 goals (behind Rafael Leao who has 11), he needs to begin firing again and the derby could be the ideal game.
Giroud netted in the round of 16 against Genoa and it took him five minutes to scored a brace against Lazio in the quarter-finals, so tomorrow Giroud will have another chance that could lead to the final in Rome.
In England he won four FA Cups during his time with Arsenal and Chelsea, earning him the title of being ‘King of Cups’ in the report, and he wants to win Milan their first since 2003.
