Inter Hoping To Extend Advantage
The pressure is most on Inter this weekend, as they look to hold off the challenges from those around them and extend their advantage at the top of the standings. Inter are currently four clear of both Napoli and AC Milan, with much of that down to their excellent recent run of form. The league leaders have won four of their last five games in the Italian top-flight, and have scored more goals than any other side in Serie A at this point.
Inter maintained their advantage at the top of the league standings last weekend, as they narrowly avoided a shock result against minnows Venezia. The league leaders fell behind early in that game, as Thomas Henry struck midway through the first half. However, the direction of the game always indicated that Inter were on top, and deservedly levelled five minutes before the break through Nicolo Barella. Venezia’s hearts were broken late in the game, as they couldn’t hold onto the point, as Edin Dzeko netted the winner in the 90th minute.
Milan Winless In Previous Two
There are similarities between last season and this season from an AC Milan perspective. They have once again dropped their standard, and have slipped down the league standings in Serie A. AC Milan come into this fixture sitting third, which means that their title aspirations are still very much alive, as they trail Inter by just four points. However, they will need to end a two-game winless run.
That run of form would have been a huge blow for Milan, as they had won their previous three before slipping to defeat against Spezia at the San Siro. They at least avoided back-to-back defeats, as they fought to secure a 0-0 draw against Juventus in their most recent fixture. However, they will need wins to get themselves back into the title race this term.
The previous meeting between the sides ended 1-1 in November. However, Inter have an excellent recent record, having won five of the previous seven matches. AC Milan’s only victory in that time came in October 2020, as they picked up a 2-1 success.
Inter Milan vs AC Milan Prediction
The recent trends point towards an Inter Milan victory this weekend, and it would be hard to go against that based on the form that the two sides are currently in. Therefore, we pick that Inter will claim victory this weekend in the Milan derby.
