Sandro Tonali and Nicolo Barella are set to do battle when AC Milan and Inter face each other at the San Siro on Saturday evening, according to a report in the Italian print media today.

As has been reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport today, the two Italian midfielders will be doing all they can to run the game for their respective sides.

They are two players that would likely have been in contention for the same starting place in Roberto Mancini’s midfield had the Azzurri managed to qualify for the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

They are two players that many feel can bring the best out of each other in games like these and they will be of immense value for Italy going forward.

Sandro Tonali had a tough first season with AC Milan but in the Scudetto winning campaign, he was a key player who got some very important goals for Stefano Pioli.
