Inter Milan eye a return to the UCL final, but their eternal rivals, AC Milan stand in their way. The Nerazzurri have the upper hand with a two-goal lead from the first leg. However, the Rossoneri are more than capable of making a comeback. While Inter are enjoying a good run of form and will hope to finish the job. The Nerazzurri started their Champions League campaign with a 2-0 loss at home to Bayern. Now, Inter are within touching distance of their first UCL final in more than a decade.
AC Milan have something to cherish as their talisman is back from injury. Rafael Leao trained with the team yesterday and should start for the all-important game of the season. They were toothless in attack without him, and now they have the license to come with all guns blazing at Inter. Meanwhile, Inzaghi should continue with his pragmatic approach in the second leg one that has given him immense success in the knockout games.
Inter eye UCL final while Milan hope for a comeback
The Nerazzurri have peaked at the right time, and Inzaghi has a full squad at his disposal except for Skriniar. Onana, Dumfries, and Bastoni will be fresh for this game after getting a rest against Sassuolo. If AC Milan have Leao, then Inzaghi too, has a lethal weapon in his arsenal as Lukaku is back in form. The Belgian striker has eight goal contributions in his last five matches.
AC Milan have other injury issues ahead of the Derby dell Madonnina. Bennacer will be out because of his knee injury, so Pobega could come in. While, Thiaw should replace Kjaer at the back, who struggled to keep up with the pace of Lautaro in the first leg.
The Nerazzurri should hold onto their lead, as Milan will have to take risks to make a comeback.
Inter Milan 2-2 AC Milan.
