Whilst AC Milan are occupying third place – level on points with Napoli and just four points behind Inter Milan.
INTER MILAN VS AC MILAN: BETTING TIPS
Inter Milan are looking to extend their 14 game unbeaten run in the league. Last time out, they faced newly promoted Venezia, where their quality came to the fore at the late stages of the game – coming from behind to take all three points.
Star man Edin Dzeko has been providing the goals (nine) when Inter needed them the most, taking the place of the now Chelsea striker, Romelu Lukaku. Despite his age (35) Dzeko has become an integral part of Inter’s forward line, pushing the team towards a potential second consecutive title win.
Simone Inzaghi will be wary of the fact that key players such as Lautaro Martinez and Alexis Sanchez have played mid-week fixtures with their respective countries in crucial World Cup qualifiers, so fatigue might become an issue for the pair.
The tifosi will eagerly be anticipating new signings Robin Gosens and Felipe Caicedo to feature in the game, as three points for the Nerazzuri will put some daylight between the two teams as they approach the crucial part in the season.
With Inter having the second best defence in the league, we are offering 9/4 (3.25) odds for Inter to win without conceding.
Milan’s tifosi will be hoping that they get a positive result to keep their hopes alive and avoid a repeat of last years misfortunes when their title hopes fell short after the new year. The Rossoneri will be looking to bounce back from a controversial loss against Spezia and a stale mate against rivals Juventus.
Stefan Pioli was disappointed with a draw against Juventus, a statement that shows their ambitions and the quality of their squad in recent times. For many Milan fans, the draw against Juventus felt like a missed opportunity as they dictated tempo all through the 90 minutes but were unable to make it count.
New signing Marko Lazetic who was bought for €4M from Red Star Belgrade will offer the team more options going forward, adding to the strike force of Milan as they look to pile on the pressure on their rivals.
Will Rafael Leao get onto the score sheet? We’ve got a 59/20 (3.95) offer for him to get a goal at any time
You can get a 0-1 AC Milan win in San Siro at 17/2 (9.50)
