[aioseo_breadcrumbs]


Today I want to write a pre-match prediction. The semi final UEFA Champions league match AC Milan VS Inter Milan that will take place at the San Siro Stadium and will start at 15:00 EST 22:00 GMT

UEFA have announced that Jesus Gil Manzano will referee the first-leg of the Champions League semi-final between AC Milan VS Inter Milan.

Jesus Gil Manzano, the 39 year old, has made 19 appearances at the UEFA Champions league since he first appeared in 2017/2018 he has issued 72 yellow cards and 0 red cards in all appearance at the UEFA Champions league. He was responsible for issuing 7 penalty kicks in the his 19 appearances at the UEFA Champions league.

Jose Maria Sanchez has been named as the Fourth Official. Artur will be accompanied by Assistant Referees Diego Barbero and Angel Nevado. With video Assistant Referees Juan Martinez Munuera and Alejandro Hernandez.

Ac Milan

AC Milan at the San Siro will want to come out attacking and get a head while they are considered to be the home team today for the first leg, they will want to put pressure on Inter. This is a never ending riviry between the two clubs and it came in at a time where one Italian club will be represented in the UEFA Final! It has been a while since an Italian team reached the final so these two matches we should expect high intensity! I believe this will mean Milan will play a 4 -2 – 3 – 1 formation and fluid attacking style similar to how they faced Napoli in the last game and Lazio.

Starting at the front with no other than Giroud(CF), along the flanks we will have Saelemaekers (Sadly Leao might not make an appearance today due to his late injury in the Lazio match)(LW) and Messias(RW) and Bennacer (SS).

In central midfield we will have Tonali(CM), Krunic(CM) and Valverde (CM).

In the Defense we will have Hernandez (LWB), Kjaer(CD), Tomori (CD) and Calabria(RWB).

and finally Maignan(GK).

I believe this will be the formation and the players selected for today’s match the results should be out 45 mins before the start of the match so lets see if this holds true.

Below is the AC Milan Official tweet related to the selection but not the line up.

Inter Milan

Inter Milan will want to play this smart against their nemeses AC Milan. They do not want to come out too aggressive but also they will not want to make it easy on AC Milan. I believe they will play with more causation against Milan because they know there is a second leg. Also from the previous UEFA Champions League Matches Inter did not go on the front run and dominate in attacking, they wait patiently and inevitably get the goal separation that puts them front. Most probably they will be playing the follow formation, 3 – 5 – 1.

Starting at the front with no other than Dzeko along side him Martinez (CF), along the flanks we will have Mkhitaryan (LW) and Dumfries (RW).

In central midfield we will have Barella, Calhanoglu, DiMarco (CM) to hold the midfield and defend so that Mkitaryan and Dumfries could play a supporting role in the middle and attaching 3rds giving them the flexibility to be more on the attacking support role in the midfield and punish Milan in the counter attacks.

In the Defense we will have Darmian, Acerbi, Bastoni (CD).

and finally Onana(GK).

I believe this will be the formation and the players selected for today’s match the results should be out 45 mins before the start of the match so lets see if this holds true.
