Cup competitions are Inzaghi's bread. AC Milan have no chance here.

Our players need to have that "willing to die" mentality in this one.

Milan is going through a bad form as well, but in matches like this form doesn't matter.

Sport washing aside, I have a bad feeling about this.

Its a 50-50 tie. There is no favorite.

* They have Leao, but no Maignan

* We have better gk, better strikers , but no Brozo & Lukaku. I would say the midfield is =

* Both teams defenses have been shaky.

You know, Meelan was saved by Maignan in the last derby ( 3-2 loss). Kalulu and Tomori are shaking these days, they are nervous and always blaming Tatarusanu when they concede, they don't trust him at all. So this is a spot to exploit.

Forza Inter!

I don't know about better strikers. Giroud has screwed us in almost every derby. 3 goals in 4 matches.

Yeah I know he has that factor against us, but recently hes not been very good. His last goal was vs Spezia at the start of November and only 2 assist since then. So he's on a long drought .

I feel Acerbi can handle him. You can't trick an old pensioner like Acerbi. This guy had Osimhen in his back pocket.

I rate Giroud, but I think apart of him being great in the air, he doesn't excel that much in other aspects of the game. The guy took advantage of our naive defending over the past few derbies, which I hope won't happen again in this one. We need to be disciplined like hell.

Leao on another note is a constant threat. You can never write him off. Milan's key players are having a bad form, Theo, Diaz, Giroud and Leao as well but at least Leao is one who can turn things around at any time unlike others.

I think Maignan's absence is overrated. The guy is incredibly good but Milan's issue was/is something else.

I'm just worried about Theo and Leao. these basterds are poisonous and beside their performance, especially this mo***r fucker Theo's provocative behaviour would drive the players crazy.

If Leao is considered striker then i would say that Milans is much better. If we talk only about Giroud then maybe Inter, as long Dzeko finds he's old form and Lautaro keeps playing decently like yesterday.

How the fuck is Brozo still out? We need Calhanoglu to mezzala role.

And yeah, if Barella can't start, we are screwed. We can't have consistent possession if we don't have at at least 2/3 of our starting midfielders on the pitch.

Acerbi definitely needed. Darmian as well, as Dumfries is awful right now.

Same thing was with rube and their players and we lost it 2:0. Same will happen again, after we lost scudetto last season we become their bitches unfortunately.

Our team has a kind of mental breakdown when it comes to playing against Juve, but the same cannot be said for the matches against Milan for example.

Over the years we have managed to dominate Milan in head to head duels, however against Juve we have historically struggled, no matter how good our quality/form was.

I don't know about mental breakdown against Juve these days. I don't think we were bad against Juve. It was decided by small margins. We beat them in Coppa final last spring despite even going behind in that match.
