AC Milan has started the new season surprisingly in good form having notched up 8 wins of first 12 league games and if they can dispose of Inter Milan they will keep themselves in top three and might overtake second place Roma if they drop points in their game earlier on Sunday.
Inter Milan on the other hand produced a superb 3-0 win over Crotone after the sacking of Frank de Boer and they will be hoping to build on that this Sunday night. This is how I expect both teams to lineup.
Previous Match Review: Both Milan’s clubs has kind of fallen from grace in recent years and last season was terrible as both failed to qualify for Europe. Inter were victorios 1-0 against Milan in their earlier league game where Freddy Guarin’s solitary strike earned them a 1-0 win and Roberto Mancini side will be hoping to repeat the trick.
This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Sunday, 31st January 2016. Confirmed lineups will be available couple of hours before the kickoff.
Match Predictions: Looking at both teams recent run of results, Milan looks better side while Inter do have more firepower which sets up a superb Milan derby this weekend. I am going with a 2-1 win for AC Milan in this one which will kill Inter’s chances of winning title this season.
Alex header got Milan 1-0 up in 35th minute but Inter Milan looked to have made their way back into the game when Icardi came on a sub and won penalty hitting the post and thats where everything fell apart for Inter.
An early cross was anticipated well by Bacca to poke home from close range to make it 2-0 and pretty much win the game for Milan. There was still time for Niang to add the third when he initial shot rebound of keeper and he slotted home to make it 3-0 in what will be a very important three points for Milan.
