Adriano Galliani has reiterated his belief that Milan will defeat Inter in the much-anticipated derby this weekend.
Earlier this week, Nerazzurri coach Jose Mourinho claimed that Milan are favourites to win the derby after the Rossoneri beat Siena 2-1 in their first match of the season, but Diavoli vice president Adriano Galliani smiled when he heard the prediction, and joked, "Mourinho is a weasel!"
Galliani has now reinforced his earlier comments, declaring that Milan will almost certainly win Saturday's Derby della Madonnina.
"Considering that he [Mourinho] likes percentages, my prediction is that I am 98 per cent sure Milan will win," the director said, according to calcionews24.com.
Rossoneri legend Paolo Maldini has suggested that Milan could win the league title if they beat Inter this weekend, while current Nerazzurri defender Marco Materazzi has played some mind-games of his own, claiming his side are the underdogs.
The match, which certainly promises to be a fiery and exciting affair, kicks off at 20:45 CET on Saturday.
