The Milan Derby hardly needs any introduction.
San Siro will play host to the 226th instalment of an epic cross-town rivalry that pits Inter vs Milan, clubs that share a stadium but not much mutual fondness. It's the Derby della Madonnina and if last season's corresponding fixture is anything to go by, we're in for a treat this Saturday.
🍕 Quick preview
Inter has well and truly gained the upper-hand over fierce city rivals AC Milan in recent meetings. The Nerazzurri has won the last four head-to-heads in Serie A, most recently in last season's corresponding fixture, a thrilling 4-2 win after they trailed 2-0. This season, though, there's a spring in AC Milan's step with Stefano Piolo's men winning three out of three in the top-flight and not conceding a single goal.
With all three of Inter's outings this season featuring goals at both ends, another night of rich entertainment is in store. Hope springs eternal for the Rossoneri.
