Stats, facts and analyses. Here is everything you need to know ahead of the Milan derby to be played today at 20:45 CET.

Following the double success in Rome, both, in league and Cup, the Red and Blacks face FC Internazionale in the Milan derby on Sunday at 8.45 PM. It’s one of the most anticipated clashes of the season and surely one worth more than three points. These are the most important facts on AC Milan and Inter ahead of Serie A Matchday 27.


Confidence is at the top. We are unbeaten in our last eight league matches (6 wins and 2 draws), winning three games back-to-back without conceding a single goal. As regards to our recent head-to-head against the Nerazzurri, we have only lost once in the last five derbies in all competitions (2 wins and 2 defeats), finding the net in each of these games. Under coach Gattuso’s management, some of the Red and Blacks have been inspired. For instance, Giacomo Bonaventura, who has scored four goals against Inter in Serie A (against no other side has he bagged more) and will most likely play tomorrow from the start.


Coach Spalleti’s side have had a season of ups and downs. From fighting head-to-head with Napoli at the top of the league in the first months of the campaign are now in 4th place 7 points ahead of us. Yet, Inter have lost only one of their last eight games in Serie A (2 wins and 5 draws). They are a tough team to beat and have been especially dangerous on set pieces. Six of their last ten league goals have been scored from dead ball scenarios, and are the third best team when it comes to finding the net this way (16 goals in total).

After being sidelined for several weeks, goalkeeper Marco Storari returns to the Red and Black squad and has been called up by coach Gattuso for the match against Inter.


Mauro Icardi has not scored a single goal in the last seven matches in Serie A. However, he is the second most prolific striker in Italy (18 goals) and tends to get fired up when facing AC Milan. The Argentinean has scored four goals in his last two league derbies.


The San Siro stadium is about 6 km away from the centre of Milan and is easily reachable in various ways. Here is all the information you need to arrive to the greatest temple of football worldwide.
