Last season, Inter won four out of five matches against AC Milan, all without conceding a goal. Will the Rossoneri take revenge on the Nerazzurri in the first derby of the new season?Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
After all the summer signings, Simone Inzaghi has practically two equivalent squads. It's enough to look at who Inter had as substitutes in the opening rounds - Marko Arnautovic, Juan Cuadrado, Davide Frattesi, and now they have added Benjamin Pavar. All of these players can strengthen the core of any Serie A team.
Given the set of performers, Inter's three consecutive wins at the beginning of the season are not surprising at all. And visually, they were given to the Nerazzurri very easily - 2:0 at Monza with an overwhelming advantage in the game, 2:0 over Cagliari already by the middle of the first half, 4:0 over Fiorentina, a participant in the European Cup. Inter spent the first rounds really as the main contender for the championship.
Rossoneri also strengthened the squad, renewing the midfield and strengthening the set of performers in the front line. Like Inter, Milan has three straight wins - a 2:0 away win over Bologna with two goals by the 20th minute, a 4:1 defeat at home to Torino, and a 2:1 win over Roma at the Olimpico.
Special mention should be made of recruit Christian Pulisic, who already has two goals to his credit. Olivier Giroud made 4+1 on the goal+pass system and is second in the scorer's race only to Inter captain Lautaro Martinez, who has 5+0 but may not help his team in the upcoming match. Giroud was injured in the game for the French national team against Ireland and was substituted in the first half.
Expert Betting Tips
Inter, at the beginning of the championship, not only does not miss but also almost does not allow to create opponents at their gates. Milan will be extremely difficult to score more than one goal in the upcoming game, especially if Olivier Giroud is not on the field. At the same time, Milan has conceded only twice in three rounds, and from Roma in the previous match, scoring 2:0 at 90+2. So, most likely, Inter will not be able to count on more than one or two goals. In general, we don't see a super productive outcome of the game here, but we also slightly prefer Inter. The Nerazzurri have much better statistics at the start of this season, and in the face-to-face confrontation with Milan in recent years, what to say if Inter has not conceded to the Rossoneri in four matches in a row?
