Inter and Milan are clashing at Giuseppe Meazza in the Derby della Madonnina in round 4 in the Italian Serie A.
Inter hasn’t lost any of their last 5 games, and they are still undefeated in Serie A this season, but they have 1 draw. In their first 3 games of the season, Inter has scored 10 goals while conceding 6 goals. With 7 points, 10 scored goals, and 6 conceded goals, Inter is in 5th place in the standings. Martinez and Lukaku are the leading goalscorers for Inter with 3 goals, while D’Ambrosio, Gagliardini, and Hakimi added 1 goal each. Hakimi and Sanchez each added 2 assists. Vecino is the only injured player for Inter as of right now, while Sensi is suspended because of the red card. In their latest Serie A match against Lazio on the road, Inter has had 60% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and a solid 875 of the correct passes. Inter got ahead in the 30th minute, but Lazio tied the score in the 55th minute. In the 69th minute, Lazio conceded a red card, but Inter wasn’t able to use the extra player they had on the field. In the 86th minute, Inter conceded a red card, and this match ended in a 1-1 draw. Inter ended last season in second place, and they will be playing in the Champions League next week. Inter has enough depth to compete in both competitions, and I see them as the biggest favorites to win the Serie A title this season.
Milan is in brilliant form, and they haven’t lost a game since the restart back in June, 23 games in a row. Milan has also won their last 12 games in a row. With 9 points, 7 scored goals, and 0 conceded goals, Milan is in second place in Serie A standings. The good news for Milan is that Ibrahimovic has recovered from the Coronavirus, and he should be ready for this match. Musacchio, Conti, Romagnoli, Duarte, Rebic, and Gabbia are all still injured. Ibrahimovic and Leao have each scored 2 goals for Milan so far, while Hernandez, Diaz, and Kessie added 1 goal each. Hernandez, Calhangolu, and Kessie have each added 1 assist. In their last match against Spezia at home, Milan was the dominant team with 61% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a solid 85% of the correct passes. The first half was tight, but Milan was able to score 3 goals in the second half, and they have won this game 3-0. Milan has successfully qualified for the Europa League, and they will be playing in Group H with Sparta Prague, Lille, and Celtic. It looks like Milan is finally getting back to their old fame and glory, but there is still a lot of work to do.
This is one of the biggest derbies in Italy and the world. Inter and Milan are playing in the same stadium, so the home field advantage doesn’t exist here. Inter might be a better team offensively, but Milan certainly has the quality to score a goal. I’m sticking with goals here.
