Inter Milan vs AC Milan: Another derby draw on cards

Inter Milan vs AC Milan: Another derby draw on cards

Kick Off: 1130, 15/04/2017

Stadium: San Siro

TV: BT Sport 1

Honours have been even in Milan derbies over the past few years, with both teams winning twice in the last seven encounters and the other three meetings ending in stalemate.

Inter and AC Milan are also separated by just one place and two points in this season’s Serie A table after drawing 2-2 back in November, so it’s hard to predict anything other than another close clash on Saturday lunchtime.

We’re sitting on the fence with our Inter Milan vs AC Milan betting tips and taking 12/5 they share the spoils once more.

A Look At Inter Milan’s Betting Odds

Inter twice came from behind to claim a point against their arch-rivals earlier this season, with Ivan Perisic’s stoppage-time equaliser sparking wild celebrations in the blue half of the Italian city.

That positive result, in Stefano Pioli’s first match in charge after replacing Frank de Boer, also helped inspire a run of eight wins in nine Serie A fixtures, but the pressure is now back on the Nerazzurri following back-to-back defeats against Sampdoria and Crotone.

Getting influential midfielder Roberto Gagliardini back from an ankle injury would be a boost and he told Mediaset Premium: “We have had a couple of bad games but now have the chance to bounce back in a huge match. We all know we need to find an extra gear and the derby is a chance to do that.”

There has only been one goalless stalemate between these teams in their last 26 encounters, so 13/4 for a score draw in the Milan derby looks a value bet.

A Look At AC Milan’s Betting Odds

AC Milan leapfrogged above Inter up to sixth place thanks to Sunday’s impressive 4-0 hammering of Palermo at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, with Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu continuing a useful loan spell by completing the scoring that day.

Former Liverpool recruit Siso had broken the deadlock after just six minutes and will be keen to put in another big derby display, having bagged both of his team’s goals in the first encounter of the current campaign.

Only Juventus have beaten the Rossoneri in their last nine matches, and that 2-1 defeat came in heartbreaking circumstances when Paulo Dybala slotted home a last-gasp penalty for the leaders.

Those anticipating more late drama this weekend when studying the Milan derby betting can get 83/100 there is a goal scored by either team between 75:01 minutes and full-time.
