In tomorrow’s clash between Milan and Inter, also knows as Derby Della Madonnina, a lot of focus will be put on Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku. Last time out, the two got in a verbal brawl, which fuels the situation.
In the Coppa Italia clash, which took place less than a month ago, things got ugly between the two with many insults in both directions. Of course, this makes the clash tomorrow even more interesting.
Ibrahimovic and Lukaku are obviously two world-class strikers and their respective team depends on them to perform well. Therefore, the battle between the two – in terms of who will come out on top – will be crucial for the outcome of the game.
