AC Milan vs Inter Milan in Serie A: Head to Head Statistics, LIVE Streaming Link, teams stats up, results, Date, Time, Watch Live, Points Table
One of the most significant stagings of the Derby Della Madonnina in recent history takes place on Sunday afternoon, as AC Milan has an immediate opportunity to regain the league lead they lost to city rivals Inter Milan last weekend.
Defeat to Serie A surprise package Spezia last time out leaves the Rossoneri one point behind their closest and oldest foes ahead of the 174th Milan derby in the top flight. Antonio Conte‘s Inter, meanwhile, will not want to relinquish their spot at the summit, as the race for the Scudetto continues.
Before a potentially historic clash between two giants of Calcio – with both seeking to win the championship for the first time since Juventus embarked on a nine-year spell of dominance – Europa League contenders Milan and their San Siro co-tenants Inter, who crashed out of the continental competition before Christmas, have prepared in contrasting ways.
Last week, Stefano Pioli’sCampioni d’Inverno’ (winter champions) was finally dethroned by the Nerazzurri at the top of the Serie A standings, having maintained the top spot for 21 rounds. A shock loss at humble Spezia and Inter’s clinical 3-1 win over in-form Lazio meant that they finally let first place slip at an inopportune moment.
Boasting a remarkably similar trophy cabinet to that of their Rossoneri rivals, with their last title triumphs coming in 2010 (Inter) and 2011 (Milan), Inter are doubly desperate to secure silverware this term. Not only would a 19th Scudetto put them ahead of Milan in the overall rankings, but it would also offer the twin benefit of denying bitter foes Juventus a tenth successive title.
With 30 domestic trophies and 18 league titles apiece, the two clubs are as historically well-matched as they currently are in the table, but Inter could have the edge this time – perversely, courtesy of their ineptitude in the Champions League group stage.
AC Milan vs Inter Milan Head-to-Head
Chasing not only a first Scudetto but also the Capocannoniere crown, Lukaku now leads the league in goalscoring – just ahead of Juve’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
With two goals in his last three matches, his 11-goal Argentinian colleague also seems to have arisen from a slight slump just at the right time.
Having previously suffered Coppa Italia elimination at the hands of Juventus, it is crystal clear that Conte and company now only have eyes for the Scudetto this season.
