AC Milan vs Inter Milan
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 17th March 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro) (Milan).
What a game for this weekend. Once, the Milan derby used to be one of the most sought-after TV events in the world, and slowly, together with Serie A, these teams are walking back into the limelight.
This Sunday, qualification to Champions League is on the line for both, and more than that, pride is at stake. There’s no possible scenario for either of them where it would be okay to lose to the other. As of now, just one point separates them, and the winner will take the third spot in the table.
There are other concerns too. Roma and Torino are pulling in great performances in hopes of getting these spots, and they lie just below the Milan sides, in the league table. With the season winding down, a need for the win is becoming more in magnitude, for either.

AC Milan vs Inter Prediction
The rivalry between these teams is as long as football itself. If we say that the squads would bleed on the field rather than concede against the other, it would not be an understatement. Even a friendly club match between the sides would be the epitome of emotions. Here, we have a game in the crucial phase of the season, with next year’s Champions League hopes in the balance. Expect a nail-biting, fast-paced ninety minutes.
The advantage is sure with AC Milan, considering their recent form and the home status. But a Milan derby is not as simple as that. Whatever problems Inter is going through right now, they’ll turn up the heat when it’s AC on the other side.
The eventual winner might probably be the hosts. But it’s not going to be easy. The game will be extremely competitive, and the sides famed for their iron-clad defense will depend on it for results.
Expect the first half to turn out goalless. Recent h2h games and scorelines amply point towards such an outcome, at least in the first 45 minutes.
