MN: Milan and Inter both walking a disciplinary tightrope ahead of final three games

By Oliver Fisher -

In such a close and hard fought battle for the Scudetto there is very little margin for error and the smallest of issues can become magnified.

MilanNews writes how the tallying of yellow cards over the course of the season can result in disqualifications, and heading into the last 3 league games that remain Stefano Pioli will have to keep a close eye on this.

Four Rossoneri players are at risk of serving a one-game suspension in the event of a further yellow card: Fikayo Tomori, Pierre Kalulu, Alessio Romagnoli and Brahim Diaz. It is clear to see that the biggest problem could arise in the centre-back role and therefore solutions are being considered.

It is possible that Pioli could rest one of Tomori or Kalulu in order to let Romagnoli play, but on paper the most complicated match that remains to be played for Milan is the home match against Atalanta on May 15th.

As for Brahim Diaz there are alternatives because Franck Kessie and Rade Krunic can fill that role as they have been doing lately, but it is certainly something to think about with regards to the choice for starting line-ups.

Simone Inzaghi’s Inter meanwhile will recover Hakan Calhanoglu who missed the away match against Udinese due to disqualification, but Alessandro Bastoni, Ivan Perisic and Arturo Vidal are all one yellow away from a ban, with Perisic having 2 goals and 5 assists in the last 7 league games.
