Milan Derby. Head to head and statistics


The most important game in Serie A this weekend is the Derby della Madonnina, which will be played between Inter and AC Milan at the historic San Siro on Sunday night.

The distance between the long-time rivals in the Serie A standings, with second-placed Inter leading fifth-placed Milan by only two points, is four places. However, Naples led the pack with a margin of 13 points.

Both of Inter and Milan's previous meetings this season ended with victories for Inter in the Supercoppa Italiana and Milan in the league. Who will win this battle this time?

Inter beat Atalanta 1-0 at home on Tuesday. The visitors only got one shot on goal, so Inter moved on to the Coppa Italia semi-finals.

The Nerazzurri have won eight of their past ten games overall, as well as five of their past six games overall.

In the grand scheme of things, Milan have won 13 of their 20 Serie A games this season, while also recording one draw and six defeats.

Inter are expected to get off to a fast start on Sunday after going 17 games without losing in the first half.

Milan, however, enters the match on the heels of three straight losses. Even worse, they have lost their last six games overall throughout all tournaments.

The Rossoneri lost 5-2 to Sassuolo this weekend after losing 3-0 to Inter in the Super Cup, 4-0 to Lazio, and 3-0 to Inter the previous week.

Milan has dropped out of contention for a place in the Champions League after losing their last four league games.

On Sunday, we can expect a high-scoring game because each of Milan's last six league games had more than 2.5 goals.

Head-to-head: In the previous six encounters between the two teams in all competitions, Inter has won twice, Milan has won twice, and the other two games have finished in ties.

There will probably be a lot of activity this weekend since over 2.5 goals have been scored in nine of the past 12 matches between Inter and Milan.

Injuries to Samir Handanovic's muscle and Marcelo Brozovic's calf are anticipated to keep them from playing on Sunday.

Milan seems to be without Fikayo Tomori (thigh), Mike Maignan (calf), Alessandro Florenzi (hamstring), and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (meniscus).

The Nerazzurri are favored to defeat the Rossoneri this time around after Inter destroyed Milan 3-0 last month.
