Inter Milan v AC Milan betting preview
Inter Milan can go level with Juventus at the top of the tableCourtesy of an unexpected defeat at Verona on Saturday night, Inter Milan can reach Juventus at the top of the Serie A standings with a win in the derby. The Nerazzurri are unbeaten in the last 15 league games having suffered only a defeat - against Juve - thus far. Antonio Conte's men recorded a good 2-0 win at Udinese last weekend, a result that ended a streak of 3 consecutive draws in the top flight. Prior to that, Inter failed to keep a clean sheet in the previous four league outings despite boasting the best defense in Italy with just 18 goals conceded in 22 matches. The Nerazzurri, who have beaten AC Milan in the last three derbies, won 2-0 the reverse fixture earlier this season, but AC Milan has dramatically improved in the last two months.
Antonio Conte hopes that his first-choice goalkeeper Samir Handanovic will recover in time to feature in the derby. Anyway, Daniele Padelli is likey to deputize between the sticks. Defender Alessandro Bastoni is banne and will be replaced by Diego Godin, with Stefan De Vrij and Milan Skriniar retaining their berth. New signings Victor Moses and Ashley Young are favourites over Cristiano Biraghi and ANtonio Candreva for the wing backs spots. Up front, with Lautaro Martinez serving his second match suspension, Christian Eriksen is expected to support the lone striker Romelu Lukaku in a 3-5-1-1 system. Alexis Sanchez and the youngster Sebastiano Esposito provide further offensive options. Roberto Gagliardini is the only sidelined player.
AC Milan have lost just one of the last 10 Serie A matchesWith an open streak of 5 unbeaten matches in the league (W3 D2), AC Milan has climed the Serie A standings and can now target Europa League for the next season. The Rossoneri will need to grab a three points to leapfrog Verona and Bologna again and re-claim the 6th position in the table. Stefano Pioli's men only managed to get a draw against Verona last time out, a result that ended their run of 5 wins in a row in all competitions. The Rossoneri are performing well since Marco Giampaolo has been sacked and the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a further boost. Will it be enough to stop their city rivals?
AC Milan will also play with a more defensive system. Ibrahimovic will play as lone forward in a 4-4-1-1 system but at least the Swede will be supported by Hakan Calhanoglu as number ten, Giacomo Bonaventura and Samu Castillejo as wingers. Ante Rebic is expected to play in the second half, having impressed as a sub. The likes of Franck Kessiè and Ismael Bennacer will anchor the midfield, as Rade Krunic and Lucas Biglia are out through injury. At the back, Leandro Romagnoli looks a sure starter, Simon Kjaer and Mateo Musacchio are in contention for the second centre back berth. Theo Hernandez and Andrea Conti will play as right back.
