How to Watch Milan vs Inter
Milan against Inter in the Coppa Italia will only be available to watch on Premier Sports and Premier Player HD.
Pioli is still without Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Achilles) and Simon Kjaer (ACL), with Sandro Tonali suspended. Marko Lazetic could feature
Because of this, Franck Kessie and Ismael Bennacer are expected to pair up in the midfield with Alexis Saelemaekers missing out for Junior Messias.
Inter’s recent dip in form will be a cause of concern for Inzaghi. But the Italian tactician will have Matias Vecino and Robin Gosens back in his squad, but we don’t think the German winger will start here over Ivan Perisic.
Joaquin Correa is a doubt for Internazionale and Alexis Sanchez is expected to miss out in favour for Lautaro Martinez, who hasn’t scored in his last eight Serie A games, and Edin Dzeko.
Predicted Milan XI: Maignan; Calabria, Tomori, Romagnoli, Theo; Bennacer, Kessie; Messias, Krunic, Leao; Giroud.
Predicted Inter XI: Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Dumfries, Barella, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Perisic; Martinez, Dzeko.
