Inter vs AC Milan Match Prediction

By William Hall

The first Milan derby of the season will be happening this weekend as Inter Milan and AC Milan go head to head at the San Siro in Serie A. Both sides are looking refreshed this season with a lot of money being spent throughout the transfer window. Inter have started the better and are still yet to lose a game the league. This has only been good enough to leave them third in the table, level with Juventus in second and two points adrift of top of the table Napoli. AC Milan will want to make some ground up on their bitter rivals this weekend having suffered back to back defeats in Serie A to Sampdoria and Roma. Although the side is looking stronger this season, they are still dropping valuable points in games they should be winning. But with both sides looking strong coming into this one, it could be the best Milan Derby we have seen in a while. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

At this early stage of the season, I thin Inter Milan are looking the better team out of these bitter rials. They are scoring more goal, keeping a lot more clean sheets and most importantly winning a lot of games. In fact, Inter Milan have the best defensive record in the league leading into this game having conceded just three goals in seven games. With AC Milan struggling to score too many and the strikers at the club not looking as if they are in full confidence, I feel Inter Milan could keep a clean sheet this weekend, and with the attacking threat they have in the squad with Icardi and co, I can't see them not scoring. When these two teams met last season on both occasions, the game ended as a 2-2 draw. Whenever Inter and AC go head to head, you are never going to be short of entertainment but with how things have done so far this season if we are going to see the same amount of goals we did last season, Inter Milan will need to be attacking a lot because I just don't see those AC Milan players being able to break down Inter Milan this weekend.

Inter Preview

Inter Milan have been very impressive so far this season winning six of their opening seven games which has made a lot of spectators around the world think they could be a European force once again in the near future. The only dropped points for the side this season come away to Bologna in a frustrating night for the players who just couldn't seem to find the back of the net. However, since then they have won back to back games against Genoa and Benevento which would have got the confidence flowing once again. In the last five games, Inter have been playing sides you would be expecting them to beat, making this the heardest. However, in the first two games, they showed they are here to compete with the big boys this season beating both Roma and Fiorentina. As Usual, Icardi has been Inter's main source of goals, scoring six goals in just seven games for the club this season. The Argentine has had a lot of ups and downs with the club over the years, but he now seems very comfortable and ready to challenge with the best.

Inter Team News

Inter Milan look as if they will be without three this seekend with Joao Cancelo (medial collateral Ligament), Marcelo Broxovic (calf injury) and Zingo Vanheusden (ACL) all recovering from injuries.

AC Milan Preview

Many thought AC Milan would better their rivals this season after the shock signing of Italian defender Leonardo Borucci. However, early signs this season are showing they are struggling to keep up with the page of Inter, and after back to back defeats going into this game, it could be a long night for the side. The thing that AC Milan are lacking where Inter are thriving is in front of goal. AC Milan don't have that player who is going to go out and score you 20+ goals a season yet. 21-year-old Andre Silva looks as if he could be an unreal player for the side after scoring double figures for Porto last season, but at the moment it seems he is struggling to adapt to the Italian way after failing to score in three games. Borini and Suso are other players who you would expect to be scoring more regularly, but with the two getting just two goals between them so far this season, they may have to look elsewhere for goals. There is no doubt that AC Milan have a great team, but at this moment in time, I think Inter Milan are the better all-round squad.

AC Milan Team News

AC Milan have six players currently on the injury list with Giancomo Bonaventure (ill), Mateo Musacchio (muscle inj=ury), Nikola Kalinic (groin injury), Luca Antonelli (calf injury), Andrea Conti (knee injury and Hakan Calhanoglu (suspension) all out.
