AC Milan in Champions League Group of Death

Rossoneri won all three out of three first Serie A 2023/24 opening matches and currently sit second with the same points as their neighbors Inter.

The Derby della Madonnina can decide the first place in the standings; that’s why this anticipated game will be worth the wait.

Chance for Milan to take revenge

Milan lost to their arch-enemies in the Champions League semifinal last season with a 3-goal margin. Those losses marked the fourth straight game Milan faced Inter in all competitions in a matter of five months (Supercoppa Italiana and Serie A).

It was a convincing defeat, and Pioli knew that his side did their best, reaching their first UCL semifinal in 18 years. But this season, the manager assembled a potential team that can challenge for any title.

Injuries worries from Inter and Milan

Il Corriere della Sera reported worries from both sides about injuries, with Lautaro Martinez and Olivier Giroud racing against time.

The Argentine will return to Milan only 48 hours before the match against the Rossoneri, given that he is on international duty with Argentina. However, the notion that Simone Inzaghi will not start as the league’s top scorer seems far-fetched.

Meanwhile, Giroud must recover from the ankle problem that he sustained during France’s win over Ireland, one which forced him off after less than half an hour and is causing a fair bit of concern given the Frenchman’s importance.

Predicted line-up for Milan

Christian Pulisic is Milan’s best choice and a sure starter, provided that the new signing has almost scored and assisted every game since his league debut.

There have been injury scares regarding Theo Hernandez, Mike Maignan, and Pierre Kalulku, but there is still time to catch up.

According to, Giroud will be ok to start the game against Inter, while for Maignan and Theo, everything seems to be resolved, and they will be in the line-up as usual.


Fikayo Tomori will sit out for the red card in the victory over AS Roma before the international break, but Simon Kjaer and Malick Thiaw will be fit to start.

Probable Milan XI (4-3-3): Maignan; Calabria, Thiaw, Kjaer, Theo Hernandez; Krunic, Reijnders, Loftus-Cheek; Pulisic, Giroud, Leao.
