AC Milan defeated Inter in the highly anticipated “MILAN DERBY” on sunday with goals coming from Alex, Bacca and Niang. Icardi missed penalty to get Inter back in the game.
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.

AC Milan vs Inter Live Stream: We will have the live streaming links for Milan derby this Sunday, 31st January 1 hour before the kickoff. Streams are usually available in YOUTUBE and USTREAM links plus couple of alternative links also available closer the kickoff.
AC Milan are in superb form at the moment winning 4 of their last 5 matches in all competitions and also made it to the final of Copa Italia by beating Allesandria in the semifinal. Inter Milan on the other hand are coming into this game on the back of a 3-0 mauling in the hands of Juventus in Coppa Italia semifinal while their recent run of results has been below par to say the least. Inter Milan has only won one of their last 5 league games which resulted in Inter losing top spot in Serie A.
AC Milan set 6th in the table with 33 points and thats 8 behind the third/fourth placed sides Fiorentina and Inter Milan so a win here will get them close to the champions league spot. Inter Milan has been superb playing away from home winning 6 of their 10 league games and losing only 1 on their trips while Milan’s home form is questionable with 6 wins of 10 matches losing 2 and drawing 2 in the process.
Short Match Preview & Possible Starting Lineups: 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.
