Inter vs AC Milan Prediction & Betting tips
The top match of Milan or the Derby della Madonnina does not come at the best time. Due to the international break, both teams have only one day to train in the run-up to this game that, due to the absence of a crowd of fans and positively tested players, already lacks the real feeling of a derby.
There is a big puzzle ready for trainer Antonio Conte. Six players of Inter have already tested positive for the corona virus, namely Alessandro Bastoni, Milan Skriniar, Radja Nainggolan, Roberto Gagliardini, Ionuț Radu and Ashley Young. Especially in a defensive way it will be difficult for Inter, especially since the reliable back-up Diego Godin recently left for Cagliari. From an offensive point of view, Conte has a lot less trouble. Romelu Lukaku has scored against both Iceland and England and has already scored six times in the five official games he played. Lautaro Martinez also scored in the international match against Bolivia, scoring four goals in five official games this season.
Due to the large number of absentees and the interland break in between, it is therefore difficult to estimate whether Inter can perform as well as in recent weeks. A spectacular match was won against Fiorentina in the final phase and an almost unstoppable Franck Ribery, Inter managed to turn a 2-3 deficit into a 4-3 victory just before time. Subsequently, a simple victory over PhD candidate Benevento was booked, after which Lazio was played 1-1. Lautaro Martinez put the nerazzurri in the lead after half an hour, but shortly after the break, the home team tied the score. After Ciro Immobile’s red card, Inter should have pushed through for the win, but simply didn’t create enough opportunities.
AC Milan had to do without the main man, Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the last four games. The Swede tested positive for the corona virus and missed two Europa League matches and two competition matches. However, the Milanisti were not damaged, although this made little difference, especially in the European game in Portugal. Milan was 2-1 behind Rio Ave in extra time, but received a penalty kick in the last minute of extra time that was decisively shot by Hakan Calhanoglu. This was followed by a crazy penalty shootout that was ultimately decided in favor of Milan after 24 penalties.
At AC Milan, the number of positive tests has so far been limited. 21-year-old defender Matteo Gabbia is the only newcomer in the list. He was scheduled to play with Italy under 21 against the youth of Iceland last week, but the match was postponed because other Italians tested positive in addition to Gabbia. In addition, Leo Duarte has been absent for three weeks. In Italy, one has to test negative twice before players can rejoin and this is not the case with Duarte.
