With Napoli running away with the league, these Inter vs. Milan predictions are probably more useful for the race for Champions League qualification this season.
Inter vs. Milan odds
1 – Inter to win – 1/1
2 – Under 2.5 goals scored – 1/1
3 – Both teams not to score – 21/20
4 – Lautaro Martinez to score at any time – 11/5
5 – Inter to win to nil – 5/2
Two goals from Lautaro Martinez were enough to come back from a goal down away at Cremonese at the weekend and claim three vital points. But a draw with Monza and a defeat at home to Empoli since the restart has probably ended Inter’s hopes of a Scudetto this season.
The Argentina international has been playing well for his club side after a relatively disappointing World Cup. So he could well be the one that finds the net on Sunday in the Derby della Madonnina at the San Siro.
The two Milan clubs are only separated by two points in the league table but it is the recent form of the Rossoneri that suggests that it will be the blue and black half of the city that are happiest at the full-time whistle.
Stefano Pioli’s side have crumbled since returning after the World Cup, winning just one of their five Serie A games. A 5-2 home defeat at the hands of lowly Sassuolo was the latest embarrassing reverse for Milan.
Repeating last season’s title win now seems out of the question – and it may even be a tough task to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League. A win here would definitely help but the Rossoneri do not seem to be the best team in the city at the moment.
Pioli has had to deal with injuries to some key players but the rest of the league has caught up – and Napoli have forged ahead. It could be another very disappointing day for the Rossoneri this Sunday.

Inter team news
Marcelo Brozović will probably not be fit enough to return for this one, so Simone Inzaghi will keep with his trusted midfield. He does have a decision to make up front though – and could opt for Edin Džeko rather than the now-fit Romelu Lukaku.
Milan team news
Pioli continues to chop and change his side because of injury and form. Simon Kjær may return to the back four in place of Matteo Gabbia, who had a poor game against Sassuolo. First choice defender Fikayo Tomori remains out injured. Rafael Leão should return as well, even with the current icy relationship between player and club. Brahim Díaz could also replace Charles De Ketelaere in the middle.
