Inter vs Milan lineups
Inzaghi rested the majority of his first-leg starting team for the 4-2 weekend win over Serie A rivals Sassuolo with Milan Skriniar the only injury absentee for the Nerazzurri.
Pioli is forced into a change, after Ismael Bennacer was forced off in the first leg, but Portuguese star Rafael Leao is back.
Below are the confirmed starting lineups for both teams ahead of their Champions League match at the San Siro on May 16.
Inter starting 11
(3-5-2): Onana (GK) — Darmian, Acerbi, Bastoni — Dumfries, Mkhitaryan, Calhanoglu, Barella, Dimarco — Martinez, Dzeko
- Injured: Skriniar
- Suspended: None
Inzaghi hailed his team following their ruthless first-leg performance, and he sticks with the same starting team, as they push for the final.
Milan starting 11
(4-2-3-1): Maignan (GK) — Calabria, Thiaw, Tomori, Hernandez — Tonali, Krunic — Messias, Diaz, Leão — Giroud
