MARCO Di Cosmo (@scioltz) has been in great form this weekend. Now he looks at the Milan derby.
Inter Milan v AC Milan | Sunday 19:45 | BT Sport Europe
The biggest match in Serie A takes place on Sunday evening when AC and FC Inter clash in the Milan derby. This should be really good so tune in.
Inter have started with two wins in the first two games but neither were straight forward. In the first match they needed a 90th minute goal to get past an Atalanta side down to ten men, while they struggled a lot with newly promoted Carpi a couple of weeks ago.
Coach Roberto Mancini was awarded funds in the transfer window and Inter have completely renewed their roster, signing big names like Ivan Perisic, Stevan Jovetic and Geoffrey Kondogbia.
If the neroazzurri were a bit lucky in the opening two weeks of this season, then I don’t see this fortune repeating itself on Sunday night in this vital match.
AC Milan have struggled much more than Inter, despite other big name signings and the energy brought by their new coach Sinisa Mihajlovic. But I feel this may be a temporary blip and expect a big showing from them on Sunday.
Inter look really short in the betting and I can’t understand the gap between the sides at the odds. Mancini’s side still have a lot of work to do, and despite AC not being a solid team I reckon they can get at least a draw here. Moreover, I am convinced further by the probable absence of key Inter defender Joao Miranda.
Goals could be on the agenda too, but I am more comfortable backing siding with AC here and at 3/4 on the Double Chance market I’ll be getting involved.
