AC Milan vs Inter Preview: Its a massive game for AC Milan who must win this to make a statement after losing three games already this season. Inter Milan on the other hand are slightly favourites to win all three points in this heated Milan derby and keep their title chase in good shape alongside Napoli and Juventus who are in action earlier in weekend on Saturday.
Both AC Milan and Inter Milan have had good run of forms and also losing streaks which have put them way out of the picture for champions league places. But they still have something to play for with 7 more leagues games to come. Since Inter are the home team in this fixture they will be slightly favourites and they must win this game to keep their chances of qualification to Europa League alive.
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.
In the Milan derby which took place on Sunday night, Alex put AC milan 1-0 up in 35th minute of the game. But Inter Milan had a real good go in the second half only for Milan to sitback and produce a heroic defense performance to see off the challenge from Inter who were awarded a penalty which was missed by Icardi which was quickly followed by two goals from Bacca and Niang sealing all three points for AC Milan.
