Betting tips AC Milan vs. Inter Milan

Slim pickings at the San Siro

The first Milan derby of the season kicks-off on Saturday evening at the San Siro. Can Inter continue their 100% start to the new season while also securing the local bragging rights? Have a read of our preview here:

Inter the lead

There is always something satisfying about being top of the league no matter who many games have been played and Inter’s tifosi can proudly shout about being league leaders despite the immaturity of the current campaign.

Three straight wins has seen Antonio Conte’s outfit bag maximum points so far with victories over Lecce, Cagliari and Udinese. Not the hardest set of fixtures to begin the campaign but these are the kind of matches that Nerazzurri need to be winning if they are to challenge for a Scudetto and challenge the might of Juventus.

The strike power they added with Romelu Lukaku took some by surprise but the addition of the well paid Alexis Sanchez whose wages are being heavily subsidised by Manchester United is even more of a shock.

The Chilean’s return to Serie A was described by Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as being good for both parties with the former Udinese striker needing to find his form again after a disappointing spell at Old Trafford.

He has only made one appearance off the bench so far but if he can find his feet then it will be another weapon in Inter’s arsenal.

As is stands, Lukaku and Stefano Sensi have both netted twice, leading the current team scoring charts while Andrea Ranocchia has rolled back the years to make a very solid start at the back for Conte’s outfit.

No one is convinced

AC Milan are a side that divide opinion. Some say they are terrible while others suggest they are just really poor. It is true, this is not one of the great AC Milan sides and they have shown that in their opening three games.

A 1-0 defeat in Udine on day one came as a shock but beating both Brescia and Verona by a 1-0 scoreline in the last two games has done little to convince people that this team is going to challenge. Krzysztof Piatek looks like being the most important player in the team again after netting the winner against Verona and the Polish striker’s goals could be the difference between Champions League qualification and not.

AC Milan v Inter betting tip

Neither side have been convincing going forward this season with Milan especially suspect. At the back, however, it has been a different story with both looking fairly strong. With that in mind, backing this one to finish with under 2.5 goals at odds of 4/5 seems good value here.
