Daniele Bonera has singled out Rodrigo Palacio as a player his Milan side must be aware of in the derby against Inter.
“I really like Palacio for the way he plays and the way he moves for the team,” the versatile defender stated ahead of the weekend clash.
“The derby is always a special game and this close to Christmas makes it even more special.
“It could mean a merry Christmas for us giving us a few more points in the table and helping towards 2014 in a calmer frame of mind.
“It’ll be a tough game on Sunday evening from a technical point of view as Inter remain a strong team, even if they haven’t had such great results in the past few matches.
“Inter’s Walter Mazzarri is a very well prepared Coach, especially when it comes to the little details,” added the former Parma stopper.
“We’re doing everything we can to prepare the match in the best manner possible, even if we dropped a few points on the way to the game.
“We’ve let in too many goals and there’s some disappointment from the games where we should have got more than we did.”
