Derby della Madonnina or simply the Milan derby is set to take place this Sunday without the former time glory. Usually the clash between the two has always set the pace of the football played in Serie A, as it set Italian teams’ course on the European stages, but not anymore, seeing as both teams display embarrassing results in Champions League where Milan lost against Atletico with 4-1 last season and Inter has not featured since 2012, being confined to Europa League ever since.
Both teams are nowhere near European places; Milan are on the 7th place with 17 points out of 11 matches, while Inter are on the 9th with 16 points. Inter managed to change managers during the international break with Mancini replacing Mazzarri. Just what exactly Mancini wants to change is yet unclear but the formation looks more likely to be the one to undergo changes. Their backline could also use some shuffling seeing as Vidic committed some errors in the past games and Ranocchia is having a good spell.
Inzaghi’s main problem is once again the forward line, and the ever-present question: to field or not to field Fernando, the 30-year old “El Niño” Torres, or go for the much safer bet of having Honda start and increase his goalscoring chances by having more than his current six successful attempts in 11 games. Javier Zanetti thinks Inter should use this particular game to bounce back into their game while Kaka stated Milan is more than capable of upsetting Mancini on his first game leading Inter.
Milan might have transferred Diego Lopez from Real Madrid, but Inzaghi still experiences issues in that department and rumours place Cech on the top of their transfer list this January window. Kovacic is one of the best players Inter have at their disposal, he even managed to score two goals, but your main pick for the goalscorer market should be Icardi with 2.37 odds to score anytime, while Palacio has 3.25 odds in the same market. For Milan, Torres is the main pick in the goalscorer market with 3.00 odds, while Honda has 3.25.
Both teams recorded identical 2-2 draws prior to the international break, AC Milan against Sampdoria and Inter against Hellas Verona; another one in this match has 3.20 odds with VIP-IBC.
