Inter Milan vs AC Milan – Betting Preview

On Sunday night in Serie A, Inter Milan takes on AC Milan at the San Siro. The visitors’ title defence appears to be all but finished as a result of their recent poor play.

Internazionale defeated AC Milan 3-0 in the Supercoppa Italiana two weeks ago, leaving Inter 13 points off the top of the table and unable to afford to lose any more games!

Inter Milan Preview

Since the post-World Cup restart, Inter has lost just once in eight games. In their first game back after a lengthy absence, they defeated Napoli 1-0. Before a 3-0 thrashing of city rivals Milan helped them win the Italian Super Cup, a 2-2 league stalemate at Monza was costly.

With 10 men for 50 minutes against Empoli at home, their league form continued to be patchy. Following that loss, they have two victories: a 2-1 victory at Cremonese with 30 shots (22 of them inside the box), and a 1-0 Coppa Italia victory over Atalanta in the middle of the week.

AC Milan Preview

Due in great part to injury, the reigning Scudetto champions are currently in terrible shape. They have only won once in seven games since the World Cup break, and that victory came in their first game back, a 2-1 victory at Salernitana. After that, they allowed Roma to tie the game 2-2 at home with a 2-0 lead after 86 minutes.

Since then, they have lost to Inter Milan 3-0 in Saudi Arabia in the Italian Super Cup and were eliminated from the Coppa Italia (1-0 at home against Torin).

They have lost all four of their Serie A games after drawing at Roma and then losing 2-2 at Leece. Their most recent performances—a 4-0 loss at Lazio and a 5-2 loss to Sassuolo at home—are incredibly concerning!

1×2 Betting Odds

AC Milan currently appears to be a shambles. Before this match, it could be a good idea to assess if Tomori, a crucial defender, is ready to make a comeback. Inter is the overwhelming favourite to win this game because they have recently played well defensively in important games!
