Inter Milan Vs AC Milan Live Online Commentary
Two teams are still in the running for an automatic UEFA Europa League spot, but will have to close the gap between themselves and Atalanta, who presently sits in fifth. The Rossoneri have had their share of ups and downs this season under yet another new coach.
At the midway point, AC Milan were actually in contention for the UEFA Champions League for next season. They also won their first piece of silverware since 2011 by beating Juventus in the Supercoppa Italiana in December. However, since the turn of the year, things have again gone awry and as such, they have slipped back down the table.
Still, the Diavolo come into this game having thrashed Palermo 4–0, which marked the first time in several seasons they had beaten an opponent by more than four goals. It was exactly the needed result after suffering a surprise 1–1 draw with Pescara that will have felt more like a loss than a draw. With Atalanta facing a tough trip to Roma, Milan could certainly jump into fifth spot with a victory over their cross-town rivals.
On the other hand, Inter will be still reeling after their unexpected loss to Crotone. That arguably had to be the biggest upset of the campaign. Although the debutants had beaten Chievo prior to that game, the Flying Donkeys are nowhere near the level of Inter. Those European ambitions, once seemingly solid since head coach Stefano Pioli took over, now have taken a major hit. Inter come into this derby having lost two in a row and they will be loath to make it a third – especially not against bitter rivals Milan.
As regards two team squad news ahead of this derby: Inter are rushing back midfielder Roberto Gagliardini in an attempt to boost their poor form. He should be fit enough to start the derby. As for the visitors: AC Milan have Suso back, but they do have three players missing in midfield. That could make the return of Gagliardini even more crucial for Inter, as the Rossoneri will be stringing together a makeshift central midfield.
