Betting & Match Odds
AC Milan are the favourites to take the three points and are priced at 29/20 with bet365. Inter
After crashing out of the Europa League with a home defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday, Luciano Spalletti's Inter will be determined to bounce back when they take on their local rivals.
The Nerazzurri have won just one of their last five matches, putting their chances of finishing in a Champions League spot this season in danger.
The continued absence of striker and former captain Mauro Icardi weighs heavily on Spalletti's shoulders, who needs a strong display against their city neighbours.
Spalletti was ashamed of his team's performance in midweek after their capitulation against Frankfurt, saying: "We lacked a bit of everything. We lost balance immediately and made some mistakes for the opener, then got irritable and lost even more balance.
"It became a very difficult game. If you don't clear your lines first, or make rough passes, everything becomes an open ball to challenge for. If you treat it with more quality, it's within your control.
"Even when moving the ball between spaces, we never created anything of note. The early goal just cranked up the tension and made us feel as if there was no chance. We lost it straight away.
"We had plenty of time to deal with the situation intelligently. Instead, we were immediately frenetic and chaotic, trying to force the ball through with individual moves rather than as a team."
Inter emerged triumphant from the last clash between these sides when they ended their fierce rivals' nine-game unbeaten run, but the Rossoneri will feel they can enhance their hopes of a top four finish.
But Gennaro Gattuso's team are in fine form lately as they remain unbeaten in their last 10 games, seeing them move a point ahead of Inter in the Serie A table.
Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek has been leading the charge since his arrival from Genoa in January, scoring eight times in nine games for his new side.
The 23-year-old will be aiming to continue his incredible scoring run as he looks to stay in the fight with Cristiano Ronaldo and Fabio Quagliarella to be the league's top scorer.
