Alberto Zaccheroniformer coach of both Milan both ofIntergave an interview for Tuttosport in view of tomorrow’s derby.
What derby are you expecting:
“Milan and Inter are the two teams most credited with winning the final title. But for this race I don’t expect great things, neither from one side nor from the other. We are at the beginning of the season, neither of the two contenders is at the top as is normal. I think Milan will play their game, with great intensity and density in the central funnel. The Devil comes to the race with a better head. While on the other hand, the Nerazzurri will try to verticalize their extraordinary strikers. Neither team will wait for the other, which is why I believe in a match with many goals ”.
On the weak points of Inter and Milan:
”The Rossoneri can still count on great enthusiasm. Eleven players participate in the Devil’s maneuver, both in the offensive and in the defensive phase. Sometimes, however, they fray and concede, especially behind, despite having very good defenders. An important gift of Inter is physicality. On the other hand, a negative aspect is what the failure of last season still pays for ”.
“Simone is managing the team, but the work will be mainly on the nervous level. The means of the Nerazzurri are not discussed. Inter have a complete squad, but for now I see a lack of continuity in the matches: during the same match there are imbalances. Milan is aware, 90% convinced that they will win the games. The Nerazzurri have a different approach. We can see with the naked eye that they are more nervous than last season ”.
On Inter who, however, are ahead in the standings:
”Yes, but the Rossoneri’s attitude doesn’t change. Inter, on the other hand, experiences moments in which they are in the game and others in which they are not ”..
Who could decide the derby:CopyAMP code
“Premise: I find it hard to name the individual because I am convinced that we win as a team. The duels in midfield will be interesting, two strong midlines face each other, with level players. Then it is clear that if Leao is turned on, it is a lot of stuff. For me, even Rebic, if he is recovered, could determine. On the other hand, given the absence of Lukaku, who had not really made a difference up to now, here is Lautaro, who is in great form: the Nerazzurri will be able to exploit his talent ”.
Su Lukaku not yet in shape:
”I give you a general, non-specific answer. For me, the fittest men must always play ”.
On the wings of Inter:
“Inter on the left is struggling a bit at the moment, in fact Inzaghi is always changing. However, the key will be in the duels in midfield ”.
