Inter Milan vs AC Milan prediction
Inter looked very well last time out away to Udinese in a 2:0 victory last Sunday night. They did need a lot of time to break the hosts' defense, but overall the came in a more than deserved way.
Inter upped the tempo in the second halftime it was more than a one-sided game. They didn't need much of the ball possession, however, the chances were coming every few minutes.
Finally, it was Lukaku who made the real difference thanks to his goals in the 64th and a few minutes later with a converted penalty kick. It was the first victory for Inter after three draw matches, proving that they aren't in a downtrend in their form.
As for the moment, they remain at the second position ahead of the new round and need a three-pointer badly here in order to stay competitive in a Serie A title race.
The hosts will miss suspended duo central back Bastoni (13/1) and forward Martinez (20/11). Injured are goalkeeper Handanovic (21/0) most likely, plus defensive midfielder Gagliardini (11/2).
Milan made a setback last time out in front of their own fans, taking just a point in a 1:1 game against Verona. It was the guests who appeared quite fearless, taking the lead in the 13th minute via Faraoni while Calahanoglu leveled up in the 29th minute.
Even though the guests left playing with a man less in the last twenty-five minutes of the game, domination of Milan wasn't that obvious and they weren't able to make the real difference not being that concrete with the chances created despite being slightly better.
It was a draw after three consecutive victories for Milan, while the team anyway remains undefeated in the last five Serie A rounds and has improved since January significantly.
The guests should miss central back Duarte (5/0) and defensive midfielder Biglia (7/0). Midfielder Krunic (9/0) is doubtful with a muscle problem.
Inter is a favorite in this one and should get the victory, however with the offensive quality that Milan possess, goals look very likely in this one. The defensive and passive scenario is almost impossible in tonight's derby game, while Inter stands out as much more confident and fluid side now.
