Where: Giusepe Meazza, Milan
Derby Della Madonnina, the one between Inter Milan and AC Milan, is arguably one of the biggest in the world. The two local rivals have a rich history and are among the most popular clubs globally. To make things even spicier before this contest, both Inter and AC Milan are direct rivals for the Serie A title. In such situations, the tension in Milan is extraordinary, which guarantees a spectacle at Giuseppe Meazza, or San Siro, however, do you like to call it.
Inter vs. AC Milan Preview
Nerazzurri have one very convenient before this clash, and that is a game in hand over both Napoli and AC Milan, who have 49 points, four fewer than them. Even though that puts them in a favorable position, they can’t allow them to miss the chance of beating the big rivals. Three points here would pretty much exclude Rossoneri from the Scudetto race.
Inter is without a loss in the last eight games, and during that time, Simone Inzaghi’s unit faced some nasty rivals, like Lazio, Juventus, and Atalanta. They would beat in all the derbies, but the one in Bergamo, that ended without goals.
When playing at home, Inzaghi’s team is very strong, and they have 10 wins in a row for the moment and are without a loss since mid-September once Real went away with a win.
Even though just a few believed, AC Milan is again among the top four teams in Italy, furthermore, they are battling for the title. We have to be perfectly straight with you, this unit doesn’t have any top-tier players, and even Zlatan is not among the best in the world, despite his name. Yet, they act as a team and play very strongly.
In recent times, Milan slowed down a bit, losing some games, like against Spezia or Napoli at home. Rossoneri has five wins, three defeats, and two draws in the last 10 games, which isn’t a shiny record.
Usually, Milan plays open and attractive events, with lots of goals. Six in the latest ten ended with both teams scoring, and that tells us that they have a solid attack but a pretty mild backline.
