Derby della Madonnina Preview: First Blood

One of the most exciting articles of the season has to be the Derby della Madonnina preview. Inter and Milan will meet at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza tomorrow. For the first time this season, the two Milanese clubs will be up against each other. After Milan won their 19th Scudetto last season, this season has become crucial.

While, the likes of Juventus, Atalanta, and Roma have been contenders, Inter and Milan are the strongest bets. It becomes all the more important for the Nerazzurri to pip Milan to the title as they will want to get their second star before the city rivals. After a close title race last season, both the teams will be keen to get one up on each other in the early stages of this season.

Inter got a much-needed confidence boost on Tuesday, after beating the newly promoted Cremonese 3-1. The Nerazzurri had a poor pre-season and have already faced defeat this season as Lazio put 3 past their defense. Inzaghi will have to work on defense during transition if he wants to gain maximum points in the first Derby della Madonnina.

Derby della Madonnina Preview: team news, tactics, and prediction

AC Milan did not have a start they would’ve wanted as they have had to settle for a point against Atalanta and Sassuolo. The Rossoneri have not made big signings this summer, as they focused on bringing promising talents. De Ketelaere is someone Inter will have to keep an eye on. The Belgian forward is versatile and can make darting runs in the box.

Inter will also have to work hard to unlock AC Milan’s defense tomorrow. The Rossoneri have kept 14 clean sheets in 2022, which is the most by any club across Europe’s top five leagues. Mike Maignan plays a huge role as the French keeper has been in hot form since last season. He also saved a penalty against Sassuolo to win a point for his team.

Inter will have to play Dzeko or Correa up front to partner with Lautaro as Lukaku recovers from his thigh injury. Bastoni could come back in while Dimarco can take the wing-back position. Skriniar and Leao will have an exciting match-up on the right. Giroud should lead the line as Rebic is out for this match

Prediction

It will be a close match between the two old rivals and Serie A giants. With Lukaku still out for Inter, the game might end in a draw as they face a solid defensive unit.

AC Milan 1-1 Inter Milan.
