One of most hot-blooded match-ups in Serie A is set to take off on March 4, when Gattuso’s surging AC Milan host their city rivals who are stuck in time loop for two months now. Do you think Milan derby odds will be similar to their last meet-up in quarter-final of Coppa Italia?
According to online sportsbook news in Italy the two teams took totally different path since last Christmas, making it even more exciting to see how things will turn at San Siro. The home team is entering the derby in much better form, experiencing a significant upturn in fortunes under Gennaro Gattuso, while their rivals Inter Milan are going through a mid-season slump and there are speculations that it might turn into another total collapse. Although Milan derby odds do not show either team to be able to crush the other, the Rossoneri are expected to have slightly better performance in the match.
Milan Derby odds in stats
The last derby della Madonnina took place just after Christmas when they met in the quarter final of Coppa Italia. The sides couldn’t be separated after ninety minutes that day, and it took an extra-time strike from Patrick Cutrone to decide the game in favour of Gattuso’s men.
Looking at the two teams’ head-to-head record Internazionale seem to have better results than AC Milan. The two teams have drawn on 4 of their last 7 meetings, and AC Milan have only beaten Internazionale once in their last nine games. So, even though AC Milan are expected to outplay Inter, the latter will be a heck of a challenger on the pitch.

AC Milan have began 2018 in the bottom half and after zero losses in last 10 games they moved up the line to the 7th place. On the other hand Inter were sitting on top of the table when the fireworks burst into the sky on New Year’s eve, but after the past harrowing couple of months in terms of results Spalletti’s men realized that they already lost their Serie A title run and they are on the brink of losing a Champions League qualification as well.
According to online betting sites in Italy, Milan derby odds are very close, so maybe placing a bet on a draw can be reasonable. If you check Betsupremacy Sportsbook the odds are (2.51) for Milan, (2.96) for Inter, and (3.34) for a draw. It’s worth noting that AC Milan scored an average of one goal per match at the San Siro since the 2017/18 season kicked off, and Spalleti’s men have scored one goal or less in eleven of their last twelve fixtures. So it makes sense to add an under 2.5 goal selection with odds standing at (1.77) at Betsupremacy Sportsbook.
