Kick-off: 1945, 07/11/2021
Stadium: San Siro
AC Milan and Inter are both unbeaten at the San Siro in Serie A this season but recent history suggests one of those records will fall on Sunday.
There hasn’t been a Milan derby draw since April 2018, with the Nerazzurri winning six of seven subsequent meetings in all competitions.
The Rossoneri are seven points ahead this term, though, so we like 135/100 for either side to prevail by any one-goal margin for our first AC Milan vs Inter Milan prediction.
A Look At AC Milan’s Betting Odds
AC Milan have struggled in Europe, following up a trio of group-stage defeats by only drawing 1-1 with Porto here on Wednesday, which cost us a 15/1 pay-out in our Champions League predictions.
Midfielder Sandro Tonali told Prime: “We started slowly and this hindered our performance. We reacted but got only a draw. We’ll have to accept it and learn from our mistakes.”
However, it is hard to fault their Serie A form, with 10 wins and a draw at Juventus putting them joint-top of the table alongside Napoli.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic opened the scoring in last Sunday’s 2-1 triumph at Roma, with Franck Kessie also on target from the penalty spot.
The Rossoneri had Theo Hernandez sent off on 66 minutes but held firm for a third straight league victory, despite Stephan El Shaarawy’s stoppage-time consolation.
Ibrahimovic has always been a man for the big occasion and boasts a fine record in Milan derbies, netting four times in as many appearances.
The Sweden great did get sent off in January’s Coppa Italia clash but should be raring to go here after only coming off the bench late on in midweek.
Looking at the AC Milan vs Inter Milan odds, let’s take 23/10 for Ibrahimovic to be his team’s first scorer.
A Look At Inter Milan’s Betting Odds
Inter have had a few setbacks this season, which is understandable after a turbulent summer saw Antonio Conte and several key players leave, including Romelu Lukaku.
However, the Nerazzurri are now on a three-match winning run after following up 2-0 Serie A victories over Empoli and Udinese by beating Sheriff 3-1 in Moldova in the Champions League.
Simone Inzaghi told UEFA: “The biggest risk was to be less relaxed after failing to score with 10 to 12 shots in the first half, hitting the post and missing chances.
“However, the lads continued playing their game and we made it look easy, even if it was not.
“Now, we just have to recover our physical and mental energies because another intense and important match awaits us on Sunday.”
Inzaghi has been rotating his squad and Inter’s goals have been shared around, so we’re going to steer clear of their obvious scoring candidates.
Dutch defender Stefan de Vrij is always a threat at set-pieces and has popped up with goals in a couple of past derbies.
Let’s finish off our AC Milan vs Inter Milan betting tips by taking 10/1 for him to net at any time.
