Alessio Tacchinardi talks about perhaps the most important duel on Saturday between Cambiasso and Pirlo.
“Both can be very decisive on Saturday. They have always been crucial players for their teams and will surely be that again in this Italian derby. Both have different characteristics with Cambiasso is more muscular (stronger) while Pirlo is one of those champions that will always give his club quality. Perhaps Andrea has more weapons in his game as he can decide a match with a free kick or a pass and so as a midfielder, he has something more (than Cambiasso). Pirlo can do more harm to the opposition thanks to the ability to invent.
On the other side, Cambiasso is more physical and plays the role differently. The Argentinian is coming back to that player of a few years ago which was extremely important for the Inter midfield. I have always liked Esteban’s quality and character, he has pride and that is an important characteristic. I think that his pride can compensate for the quality of Pirlo.”
