Inter Milan vs AC Milan : All You Need To Know About The Milan Derby
Serie A is in no shortage of huge matches this weekend, but Sunday night’s Milan derby is likely to be the biggest. These two sides meet after starting the season full of hope, with both aiming to work their way back to the big time. These two are in a battle with each other for a top four finish and a return to the Champions League, but who will win the first Milan derby of the season?
While this summer was seen as a success for big spending AC Milan, it’s Inter who have made the better start. Their lack of transfer activity has left them with a settled squad, now under the supervision of one of the best managers in the league. Meanwhile, the Rossoneri are desperate to find a long term manager of their own.
Vincenzo Montella is looking like a stopgap for Milan, given the public criticisms from the board. His side have disappointed after their summer spending, which is understandable given that they’re working with an entirely new team. That hasn’t been a problem when it comes to beating poor sides in Europe and facing Italy’s struggling sides, but there have been big issues for Milan at bigger, more organised sides.
To just say Inter are organised would be a disservice, as they have Mauro Icardi leading the line up front. He struck for Inter in the last Milan derby, and after a strong start this season we expect him to score on Sunday night. Having missed out on representing his country over the international break, Icardi should be ready to make and impact here, and we see him scoring.
