Midfielder Rade Krunic will start for AC Milan in tomorrow’s Coppa Italia semi-final first leg against Inter and will be used to man-mark Marcelo Brozovic.
This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, who report that the 28-year-old will be part of the Rossoneri’s tactical plan to minimize the influence of the Inter midfielder.
Milan coach Stefano Pioli is mindful of the importance that Brozovic has to the Nerazzurri’s style of play, and has already used man-marking on the 29-year-old in previous derby clashes this season.
Meanwhile, Davide Calabria looks to be the favourite to start at right-back in the clash ahead of Alessandro Florenzi, whilst the rest of the back four will be made up of Fiyako Tomori, Alessio Romagnoli, and Theo Hernandez.
In attack, Rafael Leao and Alexis Saelemaekers are set to start on either wing, while Olivier Giroud is expected to lead the line with Zlatan Ibrahimovic suspended.
