Only one day remains until the first Derby della Madonnina for this season. Coach Gennaro Gattuso has already identified the starting eleven to face Inter.
In today’s training session coach Gennaro Gattuso paid excessive attention to set-pieces in defense and attack. Rino is well aware that something must change regarding the attitude of the back line and expects more focus against a dangerous team like Inter.
Both teams are going through their best period this season and three points would represent a huge boost for the Champions League hopes of each squad. An interesting part of the derby is going the be the all Argentine confrontation between Gonzalo Higuain and Mauro Icardi.
Rino will rely on his usual starting eleven for the derby. Gigio Donnarumma will start between the posts while Romagnoli and Musacchio to compose the central duo. The captain is fully fit after missing the last Serie A game because of a slight injury. Davide Calabria and Ricardo Rodriguez are in advantage over their full-back colleagues.
No changes in midfield with the usual trio, Lucas Biglia, Giacomo Bonaventura and Franck Kessie to start from the first minute. In attack Rino expects the best from Hakan Calhanoglu with the Turkish winger showing only glimpses of his talent so far. The 24 year old, alongside in-from Suso, will support El Pipita.
INTER (4-2-3-1): Handanovic, D’Ambrosio, De Vrij, Skrinar, Asamoah, Brozovic, Gagliardini, Politano, Nainggolan, Perisic, Icardi.
AC MILAN (4-3-3): Donnarumma, Calabria, Romagnoli, Musacchio, Rodriguez, Biglia, Kessie, Bonaventura, Suso, Calhanoglu, Higuain.
