Milan derbies are always fierce battles, but everything points towards Inter being too strong for arch-rivals AC at the San Siro on Sunday.
The Nerazzurri are 19 points better off in this season’s Serie A table and will be seeking a fourth straight head-to-head win over the Rossoneri.
Punters can get 19/20 for the designated home team to come out on top and that is our initial Inter Milan vs AC Milan prediction.
A Look At Inter Milan’s Betting Odds
Inter’s title hopes took a hit when they were held to three consecutive Serie A draws, but last Sunday’s 2-0 triumph at Udinese got them back on track.
Christian Eriksen and Victor Moses both made their league debuts after joining in January, as Romelu Lukaku’s double kept the Nerazzurri three points behind Juventus.
“I’m pleased with the performance, apart from the last 10 minutes, when we dropped back a bit too much,” said Antonio Conte. “It was a deserved win, considering the chances that we had.”
Looking ahead to this crucial contest, he added on the club website: “We must prepare for the match in the same manner as always, with hard work and by focusing on our technique, tactics and fitness.
“We know how much it matters to the fans, while it’s also important for us, beyond just getting all three points.”
Inter seem at their best when sticking to a tight gameplan, as when beating AC 2-0 in the reverse fixture back in September.
We like 31/10 for the Nerazzurri to prevail and under 2.5 goals again from the Inter Milan vs AC Milan odds.
A Look At AC Milan’s Betting Odds
AC Milan recovered well from a humiliating 5-0 thrashing at Atalanta just before Christmas, picking up three wins and a draw from their next four league games.
However, last weekend’s 1-1 home draw with Verona left them down in eighth place and was another reminder of just how far behind Italy’s top teams they have fallen.
Stefano Pioli put a brave face on things, telling Milan TV: “We made mistakes but we played with the right spirit throughout.
“We were up against a team in great form, we just lacked that one moment to win the game.”
On facing Inter, he added: “We’re still going through a positive period and we need to make sure that continues.”
Pioli is hoping to have Zlatan Ibrahimovic back, while loan signing Alexis Saelemaekers should benefit for a run-out versus Verona.
The Rossoneri will battle hard, but we still feel there is a gulf in class between these sides.
