AC Milan vs Inter Milan Match Analysis & Prediction

Italian champions AC Milan clash with Coppa Italia winners Inter Milan in the Supercoppa Italiana on Wednesday, when two of Italy’s greatest teams take a brief break from Serie A duty to face each other in the 234th Derby della Madonnina.
The Nerazzurri have won 85 and their Rossoneri rivals 79 derbies, yet this marks only the second Supercoppa meeting between them.
The only previous Milan derby in the Italian Super Cup came in August 2011, when the Rossoneri won 2–1 under then-manager Max Allegri, with goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Kevin-Prince Boateng following Wesley Sneijder’s strike for Inter.
Milan could win consecutive games against their fiercest foes for the first time since that very same year.
A Rafael Leao brace proved crucial in their 3–2 success at San Siro, but Inter—now under Stefano Pioli—must now repeat that trick in Saudi Arabia, where King Fahd Stadium will host their latest contest.
Inter Milan has won the Coppa Italia only once, in 1977. Now they will face Juventus in a bid for their second Supercoppa Italiana victory.
The Nerazzurri are aiming to win back-to-back Supercoppa Italiana titles, as they defeated Juventus last January by a score of 2-0 in extra time.
Inter warmed up for today’s match with a victory over Verona, with Lautaro Martinez scoring in the third minute and Simone Inzaghi’s side simply suffocating any hope of life from Verona after that.

Inter Milan Team News
In the absence of Romelu Lukaku, who was left out of Inter’s squad for the Supercoppa due to injury concerns, Lautaro Martinez will likely partner Edin Dzeko in the attack. After scoring against Juventus in last January’s fixture, ‘El Toro’ could become the first player to score in successive Supercoppas since compatriot Carlos Tevez did so in 2013 and 2014.
