AC Milan vs Inter Milan
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 4th April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Stadio San Siro (Milan).
We could have hardly asked for a better introduction to the Champions League evening on Wednesday than the clash between bitter city rivals Milan and Inter in Serie A. The pre-game to Derby della Madonnina has not been more interesting in a while since both sides will come into it high on confidence and since the match itself is to have a significant role in teams’ destinies at the end of the season.
This is the last chance to Rossoneri to catch up with the likes of Inter and Lazio in the battle for the top-four finish and the Champions League football. Such an accomplishment was even unthinkable for the hosts hallway through the season, but Gennaro Gatusso has managed to revoke the spirits at San Siro and imitiate the five-win streak in Serie A. The end to such run came on Saturday evening when Rossoneri could not do much to prevent the 3-1 defeat to table-toppers Juventus away in Turin.
Nerazzurri have been in a huge crisis earlier on, but the right conformation of the exit came in last two rounds which have seen Inter trash Sampdoria and Hellas Verona (8-0 in these two games) to stay a point above Lazio in fourth and as many as eight ahead if their bitter city rivals in fifth. Mauro Icardi has been the catalyst for the new rise in form. The Argentine forward has bagged as many as six goals in these two wins and he will no doubts be the main threat to Milan’s goal here on Wednesday.
AC Milan vs Inter Milan: Head-to-head
This will be the third derby of the season.
Inter have been more successful in the league clash played in October last year (3-2) thanks to a hat-trick from Icardi.
Rossoneri, however, came on top when the sides met two months later in Coppa Italia (1-0 after extra-time).
AC Milan vs Inter Milan: Prediction
Milan have conceded five goals in last two games in Serie A. Knowing they’ll come face to face with a true predator who has scored impressive six goals in last two games for Inter, we can hardly see Gattuso’s side getting the result here.
