Moratti: Coutinho can make the difference against AC Milan

Inter president Massimo Moratti is hopeful that his side can see off AC Milan in the upcoming Derby della Madonnina, and believes young attacker Philippe Coutinho could play a key role.

The Nerazzurri twice defeated their city-rivals in the 2011-12 Serie A campaign, and the supremo has set his sights on yet another victory on Sunday.

“It is possible that Cassano could make the difference, but I personally think that Coutinho could decide the game,” Moratti told reporters.

“You can never tell who are the favourites ahead of the derby. Milan won a difficult away match in midweek, but I think we are on the same level.

“I hope that it will be a great game for the fans. Expectations are high and hopefully we will do well on Sunday evening.”

Sunday’s encounter kicks off at 20:45CET.
