AC Milan vs Inter Match Preview
Derbies do not require context or season and this Milan derby definitely doesn’t require one. With the two Italian giants following the same path of redemption in this season, there is hope that this AC Milan vs Inter Milan fixture will set the tone for their future this season. What is in store for us? Check out below out AC Milan vs Inter prediction, preview and betting tips.
Milan were one of the biggest spenders in the summer transfer window and all the pre-season predictions were about how they will challenge Juventus for the Scudetto. But, a poor start to their season under Vincenzo Montella has put paid to their title hopes and all that is left right now is a qualification for the Champions League. Even that is largely because of their improved form under Gennaro Gattuso as they come into this AC Milan vs Inter Milan fixture on the back of an eight-match unbeaten streak (W6, D2). That has brought the Milan side back into the fight for European places and they start this weekend at seventh (44 pts, W13, D5, L8). That is still seven points behind the top-four, but considering their upswing of fortunes, it may not be long before they scale that gap.
Inter also started the season with high hopes of challenging for the Scudetto. In fact, they have been one of the early pacesetters leading the title race for a long period. However, over the past couple of months, their form has tapered down and the visitors have been consistently sliding down the table. They come into this AC Milan vs Inter Milan game fourth in the table (51 pts, W14, D9, L3) which is a whopping 18 points behind league leaders Napoli. All the talk about challenging for the title is gone and the focus now remains staying in the top-four and qualifying for the Champions League. The teams from third to fifth are separated by just two points and Inter know that they need to stop their rut of just two wins in 11 games (D6, L3).
