Already in the second round of the Serie A and we will witness one of the most anticipated italian derby in the football calendar. The first Milan derby will be played under Milan’s home ground which means that AC Milan will have more of their own fans in the stadium on Saturday night. Inter Milan, who shares the same stadium with Milan, will have their own fans allocated in the Curve Sud of Guiseppe Meazza or San Siro Stadium. The atmosphere will be intense and there will be loads of fireworks and colour on the night, hopefully the football will also be as good as it can be.
Milan will play their first game in San Siro against their neighbour and what a start it will be. Having already lost Kaka in the pre-season, Milan are undertipped to play second fiddle to Inter this season for the Scedutto. This was not the case as Coach Leonardo took away a 2-1 win at Siena in their season opener. They did not seem to miss Kaka as fellow Brazilians Ronaldinho and Pato were made key players on the night. Milan did miss one thing and it was Paulo Maldini’s authority presences at the heart of the Rosserneri defence. Milan did have veteran Alessandro Nesta back but it was not enough to aviod conceding a goal to Siena. A win has given Milan all the confidence going into the derby and it will certainly the home team running the show on the night.
Inter played their first game last weekend in the Guiseppe Meazza stadium against newly promoted Bari. The match ended in a 1-1 draw which did not suit the likes of Jose Mourinho’s taste. His team lacked the flair and the creative upfront as Eto was left alone on its own most of the time. It did look like a formation and strategy that Mourinho once used during his Chelsea days. If a repeat of this performance at the derby could prompt some issues among the Inter squad and that would be very unfortunate so early in the season. Inter will be hoping that Eto continues his goals and the defense toughen up in a game that a lot could be lost.
The Milan derby has been an important fixtures in the Serie A as the decider of the league could fall on whoever wins this type of games. Inter have been dominating this ties for a few years now and rightly so because they went on to win the Serie A. However, this time around, the tie has come a bit early than usual and Milan looks to have a bit of edge. Although, a bit of edge might not be enough to win you the derby so a cautious draw could be better of and Betsson is offering odds 2.95 for a draw.
