Mediaset: Milan enter game against Inter with optimism – Brahim vs. Castillejo for starting spot

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will be looking to overturn their poor recent run of form against Inter in Saturday’s Derby della Madonnina at San Siro.

As reported by SportMediaset (via MilanNews), Milan will enter the game with more optimism than in recent seasons as they are 15 league games without defeat, stretching to 19 across all competitions.

Since the last victory – a 3-0 win in 2016 – there have been three different owners and six head coaches, but Stefano Pioli is hoping to reverse the trend by providing stability and constant growth.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic keeps the pressure high with the team determined not to make the same mistakes as in February, when they were 2-0 up at half time before losing 4-2.

At the moment, Alexis Saelemaekers is on pole to take Ante Rebic’s place on the left wing with Rafael Leao on the bench. On the right, however, there is a battle between Samu Castillejo and Brahim Diaz.
