Who replaces Brozovic in derby? Joao Mario favorite but there are also Eder and Candreva
Marcelo Brozovic will miss at least two weeks as he recovers from an injury occurred with the Croatian national team. So the question is who will be in his place for the derby on Sunday?
Well, Luciano Spalletti is crossing his fingers for tonight’s match between Portugal and Switzerland as Joao Mario is the number one candidate to play behind Icardi against Milan.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, “the other options are Eder, Borja Valero and even Candreva as trequartista. The very last solution is linked to the Cancelo who has been taking advantage of the international break to train with the team, learning as much as he can tactically. The Portuguese would be used as the right winger in Candreva’s spot.
Top choice remains Joao Mario with Candreva on the wing. Both players can exchange position during the game. The important thing is to occupy the area of the field which Spalletti believes is vital to hurt the opponent.”
