AC Milan and Inter Milan will face each other in Serie A this coming weekend. The Milan derby at San Siro is slated to kick off at 2pm UK time on Sunday and promises to be cracking game of football, especially with the two sides challenging for the Scudetto.

AC Milan

AC Milan are second in Serie A at the moment with 49 points from 22 matches, just a point behind leaders and city rivals Inter. It has been a long time since the Rossoneri were challenging for the Italian league title, and this campaign they are making a great job of it.

Stefano Pioli’s side are playing good football, but they have been rather inconsistent in recent weeks. Milan suffered two successive defeats in all competitions towards the end of January before winning back-to-back games in the league against Bologna and Crotone before doing down 2-0 to Spezia away from home last weekend.

Team News:

Davide Calabria was suspended against Spezia, but the Italy international right-back has been struggling with a minor injury and could sit out the Milan derby. Forward Ante Rebic is fit again, while Zlatana Ibrahimovic will lead the line.

Inter Milan

Inter Milan’s challenge for the Scudetto last season collapsed in the final weeks, although Antonio Conte’s side ended up just a point behind eventual winners Juventus. The Nerazzurri have done well to bounce back from that disappointment and are now sitting at the top of the Serie A table at the moment with 50 points from 22 matches, a point clear of second-placed and city rivals Milan.

Conte’s side are doing well in the league at the moment and have won their last three league games. Inter will head into the Milan derby on the back of a 3-1 victory over Lazio at San Siro, with Romelu Lukaku scoring twice and providing the assist for the other.

Team News:

Former Manchester United and Chelsea striker Lukaku will lead the line for Inter against Milan. Christian Eriksen could also be included in the starting lineup.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Inter Milan have scored 54 goals in 22 Serie A games this season.
  • AC Milan have scored 45 goals in 22 Serie A matches this season.
  • Inter Milan have conceded 24 goals and have lost two Serie A games this campaign.
  • AC Milan have conceded 25 goals and have lost three Serie A games this campaign.
  • Inter beat Milan in the Coppa Italia in January.

Conclusion

With both Inter and Milan in good form, scoring goals and not conceding too many, there will be chances in the Derby della Madonnina. This could have a fair few goals in it and could end in a draw.

Prediction: Match to end in 2-2 draw

Best Odds: 10/1
