Former Inter Milan star Nicola Berti believes they’ll be too strong for AC Milan.
The derby kicks off at San Siro on Saturday night.
“The midfield is where this game will be decided,” former Inter player Berti told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“As far as I see, Milan have no chance of winning. Simone Inzaghi’s midfield trio is so well-matched, they look like they’ve been playing together for a lifetime.
“They have such intensity and harmony, I doubt Milan can handle the comparison.
“Inzaghi has nothing to fear,” insisted Berti. “Stefano Pioli can try to smother (Marcelo) Brozovic by putting a pitbull like (Franck) Kessie on him, but that would only free up space for (Nicola) Barella and (Hakan) Calhanoglu.
“Honestly, I don’t see how Pioli can try to neutralise the Inter midfield. It will be Barella’s game, I expect a lot from him. He is a force of nature, one of those players who fires up the fans and never holds back.
“Plus he is suspended against Liverpool in the Champions League, so will be out to prove a point.”
