Inter Milan plays the role of host in the high profile match against their city rivals AC Milan (7:45 p.m UK Time).
Inter Milan is within striking distance of leading Juventus and it needs all three points on Sunday to remain on the podium. They will take on their archrivals in the Derby of Milan, knowing that the visitors will throw everything they’ve got against them. Compared to their city rivals who are in great form, AC Milan is having a hard time winning back-to-back victories and struggles on the road.
The Easy Schedule Ends for Inter Milan
Inter Milan was lucky to win the only really difficult match so far against AS Roma at the end of 90 minutes dominated by their opponents. Since then, they took on weaker teams and managed to emerge victorious, frequently by the odd goal. They picked up quite a lot of points in recent months, but the difficult matches are yet to come.
Against AC Milan, the home side needs to elevate its level of play and exercise constant pressure to have a shot at winning. They will field two strikers and assign offensive tasks to several midfielders, knowing that the visitors have a tendency of cracking under pressure. The biggest threat comes from counterattacks
No Draw in 20 Matches for AC Milan
After a decade of disappointing results, AC Milan was rejuvenated by the addition of new strikers and an influx of capital. They are yet to justify all these investments and achieve something notable as they are fighting a war on two fronts. So far they are more successful in Europa League then in Serie A.
None of the last 20 games ended undecided for AC Milan, so the risk of a draw against their city rivals is relatively low. This should encourage punters ready to bet on Inter Milan win; check out odds for the match at 888 Sport.
