Inter vs AC Milan Team News:
Joaquin Correa and Robin Gosens are both out of the Derby due to thigh ailments, but the rest of the Inter squad is in good shape. Given that Correa is expected to miss the remainder of the month and that both Lautaro Martinez and Alexis Sanchez have been in South America competing in the Qatar 2022 qualifying tournament, recent arrival Felipe Caicedo – signed from Genoa just a few weeks ago – will be hoping to partner Edin Dzeko in the starting lineup up front.
A head-to-head duel between Matteo Darmian and Denzel Dumfries for a position on the right should be the most finely-balanced choice made by Inter coach Simone Inzaghi for his team’s starting lineup.
Fikayo Tomori and Zlatan Ibrahimovic might be forced to join long-term absentee Simon Kjaer on the sidelines as AC Milan begins their Serie A season after a week of inactivity. Ante Rebic is also a concern for the match. Ibrahimovic was forced off the field during Rossoneri’s previous game due to an Achilles injury, and he has been exercising separately from the rest of the squad. Olivier Giroud may be called upon to take over as the team’s captain.
Because Franck Kessie has returned from the Africa Cup of Nations, the Ivorian international could return to the more forward position that he played so well against Empoli, in which he scored a brace, in which he was instrumental. Brahim Diaz, on the other hand, will start supporting Giroud
Inter vs AC Milan Probable Playing XI:

The One-Liner Explainer:
Most indications indicate a ‘home’ win on Saturday, as Inter are again in the ascendant and victory would build a big advantage over Inter Milan in the championship race. The Nerazzurri’s offensive versatility and improved strength in depth should enable them to defeat an increasingly erratic opposition team, which may even represent a knockout blow for the Rossoneri’s Scudetto chances.
