Inter Milan vs AC Milan 16/10/2017
Football is relevant yet again in the city, and there’s enough talent on show. Inter have won all but one game in the build up to this battle of the Milanese giants. But do note, three of them are up against new boys Crotone, Benevento and SPAL.
Marcelo Brozovic, who netted a brace against Benevento, is out after picking up an injury on international duty. Joao Mario will fill in. The incentive for Inter, the home side in this showdown, is that a win, depending on results elsewhere, will propel them to the top of the table!
Pressure is mounting on Vincenzo Montella as Milan have started to falter. A 2-0 defeat to Sampdoria prior to the international break was their second of the season. And it doesn’t bode well for Montella, who has lost all three of his previous meetings with Spalletti.
Inter have not won the derby since a 1-0 result in September 2015, managing a defeat and two 2-2 draws. It is best advised that you watch till the final whistle. In both fixtures last season, which ended in 2-2 draws, each ended with a stoppage time equaliser.
