While the Derby della Madonnina may have lost some of its appeal this year considering the plight of both Milan clubs, Sunday’s encounter promises to be an enthralling contest.
Inter Milan are still within reach of a top three finish, although Walter Mazzarri and his side’s recent form has seen them fall behind their rivals.
In contrast, AC Milan are looking to merely keep their season alive as they remain well off the pace in the bottom half of the table after a disastrous start of the season.
Although they remain as the only Italian club in the Champions League, Massimiliano Allegri is under significant pressure to secure a top three finish, but that objective looks more impossible with each passing week.
Nevertheless, the form book is said to go out the window for derby clashes, and it will be no different on Sunday night as these two giants of European football go head-to-head.
The Curva Nord, where the Nerazzurri’s most ardent supporters are situated, has been reopened despite a ruling by the Disciplinary Commission to close it after insulting chants were made last week.
As a result, the atmosphere is expected to be as hostile and tense as usual, with both teams fully appreciating the importance of the game whilst also wanting to end the year off on a winning note.
Diego Milito appears to be the only absentee for the “hosts”, while Allegri has numerous selection headaches with a number of injury concerns as Stephan El Shaarawy is amongst a whole host of names missing.
