Inter vs. AC Milan predicted lineups and Team news for Champions League semi-final


Inter are in a strong position to reach their first UEFA Champions League final since 2010 ahead of a crunch semifinal second leg against city rivals AC Milan.

Inter stormed to a magnificent 2-0 first-leg win in the first leg of this double at the San Siro thanks to strikes from veteran duo Edin Dzeko and Henrikh Mkhitaryan that put them on the brink of the Istanbul final.

Although Milan head into the first leg as slight favourites, Stefano Pioli’s side will need to pull off an incredible turnaround to have any chance of reaching June’s final showdown.
