Interviewed exclusively by Sky Sport, Sampdoria playmaker Riccardo Saponara, voiced his opinion on the battle of the Argentinian strikers in the Milanese derby on Sunday evening at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
The former Fiorentina and Empoli man asked who he would rather play out of Icardi and Higuain to which he replied: “I can’t say as they are both at the same level, Pipita impressed me because he has immediately settled into life with the Rossoneri and he’s proving to be a champion in terms of personality: Icardi is a guarantee, it’s hard to choose one or the other.”
Icardi and Higuain are set to face off in the Milano derby this weekend for the first time since Higuain made the jump across from Juventus to AC Milan over the summer.
Higuain is currently on four goals in the Serie A whilst Icardi has three after the first eight games of this season. After scoring a hat-trick in this fixture last year, Icardi will be looking to make a similar impact this time around.
