Serie A: AC Milan vs Inter Milan preview


Another edition of the historic "Derby della Madonnina" will take place on Sunday as city rivals AC Milan and Inter Milan will battle it out at the Giuseppe Meazza stadium. Last season ended with one derby win apiece, a 3-0 success for AC Milan and a 1-0 victory for Inter. The recent history of the derby is quite well-balanced, with three wins for each side and three draws in the last nine competitive matches. There have been two friendly meetings between the two rivals last season, resulting in one win for each side.

AC Milan have been doing pretty well lately, they won five of their last six matches and lost just one of their last nine competitive matches. They are aiming for a top-three finish this season, which would grant them qualification to the Champions League. They are currently holding that third spot, just one point behind second-placed AS Roma. Andrea Bertolacci, Riccardo Montolivo and Davide Calabria are injured, while central defender Alessio Romagnoli might also miss out after having picked up an injury while on international duty with the Italian national team.

Inter had a tormented start to the season, which resulted in the sacking of head coach Frank de Boer. Former Lazio boss was appointed during the international break, so he will make his debut at Inter on the occasion of the city derby. Inter have lost five of their twelve league matches so far this season and they are also in a precarious position in the Europa League after having lost three of their four group matches. Defender Andrea Ranocchia is suspended for this match.

Probable line-ups:

AC Milan: Donnarumma - Abate, Gomez, Paletta, De Sciglio - Kucka, Locatelli, Bonaventura - Suso, Bacca, Niang

Inter: Handanovic - Ansaldi, Miranda, Murillo, Santon - Brozovic, Medel, Mario - Candreva, Icardi, Perisic

My prediction: AC Milan to win 2-1.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

AC Milan win - 2.80
Draw - 3.20
Inter win - 2.60

    I've had already commented on the forum that I didn't watched that game but from the statistic that I saw on Bet365 live console all the Inter stats like possession of the ball, shots on goal and all the other vital ones were triple better than those of Milan which just shows that Milan lead was not exactly well deserved.
    The draw is maybe the most fair result for those two who again started the season with big expectations and again it looks to be bust even before we reach the middle of it.
