Colomba: El Shaarawy & Cassano key

Former Parma Coach Franco Colomba believes the Derby della Madonnina will be a shoot-out between Stephan El Shaarawy and Antonio Cassano.

Inter face Milan on Sunday, and the 57-year-old tactician is of the belief that whoever is the sharper of the two strikers, will guide their side to victory.

“The man of the derby? I have two names,” he toldtuttomercatioweb.com. “El Shaarawy and Cassano. The Italo-Egyptian is proving to be a great players, whilst the Inter man can win a match on his own.”

The one-time Napoli man was also asked who he believed would come out on top at the weekend, after their midweek exerts in Europe.

“Both sides are on the rise after difficult starts,” he replied. “Both teams are playing well in Italy and abroad. Certainly a Champions League win is worth more [in confidence] than a Europa League win, but we must not forget that the Rossoneri will have spent more physically against Zenit.”
