AC Milan team news vs Inter: Tonali out, but Bennacer returns

Sandro Tonali faces a Coppa Italia suspension after collecting back-to-back yellow cards in the two rounds prior, but Stefano Pioli can welcome back Ismael Bennacer, who missed Friday night’s 1-1 draw with Udinese through a Serie A ban, so it’s likely to be a straight swap in midfield. Unfortunately, Simon Kjaer and Zlatan Ibrahimovic remain sidelined indefinitely for the hosts.

Inter team news vs AC Milan: Bastoni and Brozovic back for Inter

Robin Gosens is nearing a return to action and his Inter debut since joining the club from Atalanta in the winter window, but as for now the Germany international is still out of action with a hamstring issue. Joaquin Correa joins him on the treatment tables, with both expected back in early March. Inter will get their own boost as both Marcelo Brozovic and Alessandro Bastoni return from suspension — and a much-needed return after the recent 2-0 defeat inflicted by Sassuolo.
