Gazzetta dello Sport tries to predict how Luciano Spalletti will line up his Inter for the Milan derby in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals later today.
Daniele Padelli is likely to be entrusted with a start in between the sticks after Torino’s former number one impressed in the previous cup game against Pordenone, arguably saving Inter from what could have been a very embarassing defeat. Milan will also be without their starting Keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, so it can be assumed that veteran Marco Storari will take his place.
As for the rest of the team, both Danilo D’Ambrosio and Joao Miranda are to miss the tie due to injuries they both sustained against Sassuolo just before Christmas.
Ivan Perisic and Marcelo Brozovic involvement is still up for debate, considering the hard work of Eder and Joao Mario in training and the next league game against Lazio, which is crucial towards Inter’s objective of Champions League qualification.
Inter Predicted Starting XI (4-2-3-1): Padelli, Cancelo, Ranocchia, Skriniar, Nagatomo, Vecino, Gagliardini, Candreva, Joao Mario, Perisic, Icardi.
