Head to head
It’s the Derby della Madonnina as Internazionale play host to AC Milan in Serie A on Sunday. Read the match predictions to find out why an Inter win is the betting tip at the San Siro. Inter signed off for the international break with a routine 1-2 win away to Benevento while AC Milan were outclassed in a 2-0 defeat away to AS Roma.
Internazionale v AC Milan Preview
Inter have just one injury concern, with Marcelo Brozovic picking up a knock while on international duty. João Mario is expected to get the nod ahead of Eder to fill the void behind an in-form Mauro Icardi. The striker has six Serie A goals to his name and has benefitted from the service of Ivan Perisic who has laid on three assists this season. Elsewhere, Yuto Nagatomo and João Cancelo will hope to oust Dalbert at left-back.
Milan have Hakan Calhanoglu suspended for this one, potentially forcing a tactical shift. That would see Suso join Andre Silva up-front and Giacomo Bonaventura come into the midfield. Luca Antonelli and Andrea Conti are injured while Nikola Kalinic is doubtful. Fabio Borini seems to be a favourite of head coach Vincenzo Montella and will likely be deployed on the right flank.

Internazionale vs AC Milan Prediction Prediction
Inter have enjoyed a bright start to the season and although they were expected to beat Benevento by a more convincing margin, are starting to rack up the wins. The The Nerazzurri are just two points behind Serie A leaders Napoli who have had a 100% start to the season. They’ve kept three successive clean sheets at the San Siro and should be tough to break down once again.
Milan underwent an intensive recruitment drive in pre-season, splashing the cash to bring in a number of new faces. Due to the fact that a number of the new additions are considered prospects for the future, they haven’t all hit the ground running. As such, the Rossoneri find themselves down in seventh spot and five points adrift of their city rivals.
It cannot be ignored that Inter are undefeated in their last six home matches against AC Milan in all competitions. The last of those was a 2-2 draw but I can see their defence doing better this time around. Meanwhile, AC Milan are in a rut and look to be there for the taking.
