AC Milan vs Internazionale 05/03/18
In Sunday’s Derby della Madonnina, AC Milan will host Inter that have a turbulent season. After a great start, the Nerazzurri have been slowing down, and now they have to worry about the Champions League qualification spot, with their arch-rivals Milan came quite close following a disastrous kick off of the season. Although the season seemed lost in November, the Rossoneri have significantly raised their game under Gennaro Gattuso’s guidance, and now they have every intention of challenging Inter and Roma for the Champions League promotion. The seven-time European champions have managed to keep a clean sheet six times in a row in all competitions, while their city rivals failed to score in four out of their previous six games. The visitors are eager to impress following rather disappointing performances over the last couple of months. Two sides have already met each other this campaign in the Coppa Italia in a match Milan have won thanks to Patrick Cutrone’s goal in extra time.
The home team is still without Andrea Conti, who has recently returned to full training after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury last September.
On the other hand, Luciano Spalletti has his entire squad available, including Mauro Icardi who missed clashes with Bologna, Genoa, and Benevento due to a thigh strain.
