Inzaghi: 'Give Ibrahimovic the 9'

Pippo Inzaghi gives his Milan Derby predictions and urges Zlatan Ibrahimovic to take the Number 9 jersey, thus removing the “curse.”

The former hitman is now the coach of runaway Serie B leaders Benevento, but none of the forwards who inherited the shirt after his retirement have managed to make an impact.

“If someone scored with the Milan Number 9 on his back, then I am happy,” assured Inzaghi on Sky Sport Italia.

The importance of being Brozovic

It’s difficult to gauge just how much Marcelo Brozovic brings to this Inter midfield until they have to do without him, argues Tommaso Adami.

The first time Marcelo Brozovic set foot at San Siro was on November 16, 2014, when Croatia played Antonio Conte's Italy in the fourth match of the 2016 European Championship qualifiers. Marcelo, who was turning 22 that day, was then a promising midfielder at Dinamo Zagreb. Little did he he know that, only two months later, that very stadium would become his home and, five years down the line, the opposition's manager would coach him at Inter, making him the pre-eminent midfield pawn in his title-challenging side.

Pirlo: 'A very different Milan now'

Andrea Pirlo warns “this is a very different club to the old Milan” and gives his views on Stefano Pioli, Lucas Paqueta, Theo Hernandez, Suso and more.

The now retired midfielder told La Gazzetta dello Sport his views on the club where he spent 10 years, playing in 401 competitive matches.

“This is a very different club to the old Milan. Paolo Maldini and Zvonimir Boban are doing what they can, signing the players they could get, as there aren’t the same financial capabilities as the past,” said Pirlo.

Pirlo: 'Conte and Ibrahimovic demons'

Andrea Pirlo gives his predictions for the Milan Derby and sees Antonio Conte and Zlatan Ibrahimovic having key roles. “They can’t stand losing, they become demons.”

The now retired midfielder is in a unique position to discuss this match, as he played for both San Siro clubs, was teammates with Ibrahimovic at Milan and worked under Conte at Juventus.

“There’s a 19-point gap, but the derby is a game unto itself and that difference is wiped out,” Pirlo told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
