Only one point separates AC Milan and Inter on the Serie A table, but that’s far from being the only reason why their duel on Sunday evening at San Siro is going to be interesting. The rivalry between these two is insane and matches of Derby Della Madonnina are always packed with excitement. Prediction the outcome of a Milan derby is not easy, so before putting any money on this match, make sure to read our AC Milan vs Inter prediction and betting tips!
Rossoneri are the hosts in this match, even though both teams play their home games at San Siro a.k.a. Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. And both AC Milan and Inter have been really great when playing at this stadium this season. In the Serie A, both sides have won 9 matches, while losing 2.
However, when it comes to h2h duels between these two, the team that’s officially the host gets to win more often. In fact, the last time the away team won Derby Della Madonnina was back in 2012 when Inter beat AC Milan 1:0.
Speaking of home stats, I got to mention that AC Milan are in a great form. When playing at their stadium, they’ve been winning a lot of points this season in Serie A, but also in the Italian Cup. Actually, they won 4 previous games at San Siro and are without a home defeat in 2019. The most impressive fact is that they still haven’t allowed a goal at home in 2019.
AC Milan have also been good on the road, the result of which is that they got themselves to the 3rd place on the table. And staying there is their goal. That won’t be easy, but Rossoneri now have a pretty impressive squad. They’re strong in all areas, but their attack stands out.
That’s where they got Krzysztof Piatek, who’s scored 6 goals since joining AC Milan this January. This guy is a serious contender for the top-scorer trophy in Serie A, although the competition is fierce – Quagliarella, Ronaldo, Zapata, etc. Currently, Piatek has 19 Serie A goals to his name, 6 scored in AC Milan shirt and the rest as a Genoa player.
Their city rivals have been playing great, but Inter can’t say the same about themselves. March hasn’t been the best month in their history. The month started with a loss to Cagliari in Serie A. They did beat SPAL in the following match, but then they lost home to Eintracht Frankfort and got knocked out from Europa League.
Losing the Milan derby could mean that Spalletti’s time in Inter is over. This is why the manager will be extremely motivated to prepare his team for this game. However, the problem is that his team might not be too motivated to follow his advice strictly. The thing is that the situation in Inter locker-room isn’t great.
There’s a number of players who are dissatisfied with their current status, including Mauro Icardi. Inter’s best player is apparently disliked by many of his teammates, who believe he isn’t giving his utmost to help the team. Apparently, Icardi wants out but his way of expressing it has made everyone upset. The result is that Icardi got stripped off captaincy, after which he suddenly became ‘injured’ and left the squad. And without their best player, Inter are likely to struggle to score against Milan who have been great at the back.
AC Milan absentees:
- Cristian Zapata (injury)
- Giacomo Bonaventura (injury)
- Sime Vrsaljko (heart problems)
- Miranda (injury)
- Radja Nainggolan (injury)
- Mauro Icardi (injury)
Donnarumma – Romagnoli, Musacchio, Calabria, Rodriguez – Bakayoko, Kessie, Castillejo – Calhanoglu, Suso, Piatek
Handanovic – Skriniar, de Vrij, D’Ambrosio, Asamoah – Brozovic, Politano, Vecino, Perisic, Candreva – Martinez
AC Milan vs Inter Prediction
Both teams are great at the back, so we shouldn’t see too many goals here. And if we see them, they’re gonna be scored by Krzysztof Piatek.
