Players to Watch

Brahim Diaz

Diaz being kept on the sidelines against Atalanta was a huge mistake and now the attacking midfielder will need to step up in a huge game. Milan have struggled with their injuries and illnesses in recent weeks as they have lost as many games in January as the whole of 2020. Diaz will need to create spaces for the wingers and striker to exploit.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Ibrahimovic has looked isolated since his return as his talisman Calhanoglu has been absent. The striker will need to adapt and generate some moments of magic against Inter if we are to have any chance at winning this game. The striker will need to motivate the attack and be mobile enough to diversify the types of attacks.

Romelu Lukaku

Milan's default worry against Inter. Lukaku coming up against a vulnerable Simon Kjaer and Alessio Romagnoli will be a daunting experience as Milan have looked shaky in 2021 thus far. The striker will look to overpower Romagnoli and will need to be kept at bay. His hold up play always hurts us and we will need Kessie and Meite to fall deep more often.

Prediction: Inter 1 - 2 Milan
