‘Icardi to win Milan derby, or…’

Former Inter defender Marco Materazzi claims “Mauro Icardi or a defender” will decide Sunday’s Milan derby.

Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport on Wednesday, Materazzi also gave Inter boss Luciano Spalletti some advice over how to approach the inter-city clash.

“What must Inter do to win the derby? Do what Gattuso is doing, playing with heart, passion and competence, things that Inter have shown they have and can’t have lost,” he explained.

‘Inter problems psychological’

Marcello Lippi believes “something on a psychological level” is behind Inter’s recent downturn in form.

The Nerazzurri did beat Benevento at the weekend, but they have slipped out of the Scudetto race and are even in danger of being caught by city rivals Milan, who they face in the Derby della Madonnina this weekend.

“Usually the less favoured team wins the derby,” Lippi, a former Inter Coach, pointed out to Gazzetta dello Sport.
