The Milan derby is one of the most awaited encounters in world football, and both teams display great attitude in the game. Inter Milan and AC Milan share a great rivalry; the proud teams hate to lose a derby game, and a victory gives a huge boost to either side.
This is one of the most important games of the season for both clubs, and it could give them a huge lift for the second half of the season.
Inter Milan had a very poor start to their season, but they have certainly recaptured their form under Claudio Ranieri and are currently fifth in the table, only eight points behind the leaders Milan.
It was inconceivable that Inter would be so close to their rivals two months back, but the players and the manager have done immensely well. If they do beat AC Milan, they could close the gap to five points and probably will believe they can even overtake their rivals.
AC Milan had a slow start to their season but have managed to find their consistency and form in recent weeks and are currently tied on points with Juventus. Milan have a very strong team; they will be confident of winning against Inter Milan and also retaining their Serie A title.
This could be a very tricky season, and anything could happen yet in this title race.
This Milan derby is very important for both teams and is bound to be both entertaining and exciting. Here are the probable starting lineups for the two sides.
