Inter Milan just edged out AC Milan 3-2 back in mid-October and we reckon they can do a Serie A double over their arch rivals for the first time in six seasons.
The Nerazzurri go into this game seeking a third straight victory and are eight points clear of the Rossoneri in the table.
We’re backing Luciano Spalletti’s side at 7/4 in our AC Milan vs Inter Milan betting predictions.
A Look At AC Milan’s Betting Odds
Gennaro Gattuso has done enough to earn a permanent contract as AC Milan boss, leading his side to the Italian Cup final and a nine-match unbeaten run in Serie A which included eight wins.
However, the Rossoneri have had their limitations exposed again recently, losing twice to Arsenal in the Europa League and going down 3-1 at Juventus in this competition.
It was interesting to note Gattuso’s criticism of Turkey international Hakan Calhanoglu for being at fault for Juve’s second goal.
“I got angry with Calhanoglu at one point because when he loses the ball he starts arguing, I don’t like to see that,” Gattuso told Mediaset Premium.
“He looks at the ground and starts shouting at his team-mates. If he just lifted his butt off the ground and got running after the ball to win it back, we wouldn’t concede the second goal.”
That rebuke highlights how Gattuso still has some way to go before instilling his own strong work ethic on the current squad.
A Look At Inter Milan’s Betting Odds
Inter Milan have not attracted half as much publicity as their city rivals this season but have quietly gone about putting together a decent campaign.
They looked like potential title contenders until losing twice on the run-up to Christmas and then being held to five straight draws.
However, Spalletti’s solid side have got back on track of late, picking up three wins and a draw against Napoli from their last four fixtures, with 10 goals scored and none let in.
Ivan Perisic has shown why Manchester United tried to sign him last summer by netting in a 5-0 win at Sampdoria and a 3-0 home victory over Verona.
However, the real star of those shows was Mauro Icardi, who bagged the other six goals to take his tally to 24 in Serie A this term.
That total includes a hat-trick in October’s derby triumph and Icardi appeals at 17/4 to break the deadlock here in our AC Milan vs Inter Milan betting tips.
