Tipster’s Angle

Inter Milan have failed to defeat AC Milan in their last three meetings, losing one and drawing two. Both teams won convincingly to get to this stage, making any outcome in favor of either side difficult to call. Here are our thoughts on the possible outcomes for the Milan Derby:

Tip: Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.32

Although the first leg ended in a goalless draw, both teams know they need to score goals this time around. They will approach this fixture with much more desire than the first, and with players like Giroud, Leao, Lautaro Martinez, Dzeko, and Alexis Sanchez on the field, scoring goals should not be difficult for either side. Over 1.5 goals is available on the Paripesa sportsbook at 

Tip: AC Milan to Win @ 3.60

A very tough call to make, but although AC Milan are not the favorites to win this fixture on the sportsbooks, we are tipping them to overturn the slump that has seen them draw two games in a row. Inter Milan have won by single goal margins twice in their last five games, but AC Milan have won by that same margin three times in a row in their last 5 games.

An upset cannot be ruled out, especially now that AC Milan have a team that can rival Inter Milan at all levels. AC Milan to win is placed at 3.60 odds on the sportsbook.


The Milan Derby promises to be exciting, although the first leg was a drab affair that ended in a goalless draw. We expect a more competitive contest, as both teams target a shot at Coppa Italia glory.
