Brescia manager Beppe Iachini is under no illusions when welcoming Serie A leaders Milan. “We need the perfect performance.”
This is a Lombardy derby and almost a top-to-tail clash, as the Rondinelle are in penultimate place.
“We will have to be very good at keeping a balance between an intense performance and never letting go of our principle characteristics, which are to attack,” said the Coach.
“Milan are an excellent squad going through a strong period of form, so we need the perfect performance in every way.
“The Rossoneri are also wonderful in the one-on-one situations and seek to gain an extra man when going forward. They have great abilities mixed with physicality and a hard work rate.”
It looks as if Iachini could field a trident with Alessandro Diamanti supporting Andrea Caracciolo and Eder.
Pietro Accardi should replace the suspended Davide Zoboli in defence.
