AC Milan vs Inter : Match Preview And Possible Lineups

Last Updated on 02/09/2022 by

The Milan derby on Saturday will feature a thrilling contest between the two most recent Serie A champions. Due to their similar season starts, AC Milan and Inter seem to be equally matched going into this match.

AC Milan would have hoped for a much better start to the season, even though they are still undefeated. They have two victories and as many draws from their first four games, which is slightly less than their season-opening total of three wins and a draw from the previous year.

Midweek, AC Milan struggled to get going and were held to a scoreless draw at Sassuolo. Due to Mike Maignan’s first-half penalty save, they could have lost despite having only two attempts on goal.

The issue for AC Milan is that they have found it difficult to acquire the attacking quality that was so simple to acquire the previous season. The fact that the Rossoneri are still unbeaten will give manager Stefano Pioli some comfort despite the fact that players like Olivier Giroud and Rafael Leao have not played at their best this year. With just one point separating them from AC Milan, Inter’s start to the season has only been marginally better. Despite having three victories this year, Lazio has already defeated them 3-1.

The Nerazzurri defeated Cremonese 3-1 on Tuesday, showing great resilience after their loss at Lazio. Joaquin Correa, Nicolo Barrella, and Lautaro Martinez’s efforts gave them a 3-0 lead before the guests scored a consolation goal.

Inter has not lacked for quality in the final third, which is one way the two teams differ from one another. With Lautaro Martinez already having two goals, they have scored in every game this season.

Recent head to head

In their last three games, AC Milan and Inter have each recorded one victory and one tie. In their most recent meeting, which took place in April, Inter came out on top 3-0.

Players to watch

Despite this season’s inconsistent play, Olivier Giroud and Rafael Leao continue to be key attacking threats for AC Milan. Inter’s attacking play will be reliant on Lautaro Martinez, who has already scored two goals this season, as Romelu Lukaku is out injured.

Possible lineup for AC Milan:
Maignan- Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Hernandez- Bennacer, Tonali- Messias, Diaz, Leao- Olivier Giroud

Possible lineup for Inter:
Handanovic- Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni- Dumfries, Barella, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Dimarco- Martinez, Edin Dzeko
