Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Milan and Inter, the two bitter rivals, face each other at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in the Derby della Madonnina. The Rossoneri aim to build on back-to-back wins over Pescara and Palermo and seeing that a victory over the Nerazzurri would see them stay in the race for Scudetto, there is every chance coach Vincenzo Montella will adopt an attack-minded approach in the Derby di Milano. Milan are eyeing their fifth consecutive win on home soil, but beating Inter in the local derby is easier said than done. The Nerazzurri failed to impress in their last league match against Crotone, but thanks to three late goals they eventually managed to defeat the newcomers. Frank de Boer’s men are eight points behind Milan in the Serie A standings, meaning that a win is a must for the “away team”. Anyhow, there will be fireworks when the two local rivals take on each other in the Derby della Madonnina and we predict that they will share the spoils on Matchday 13.
