The derby remains in doubt with two Milan players defenders Leo Duarte and Matteo Gabbia currently in self-quarantine. Milan's Swedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to training on Sunday after two negative swabs, having tested positive on September 24. AC Milan are second in Serie A after winning all three of their games, with Inter Milan fourth after two wins and a draw.
