AC Milan – Inter

.

Serie A Standing BEFORE the game:
AC Milan, 2nd position with 49 points and a positive goal difference of +20
Inter, 1st position with 50 points and a positive goal difference of +30

Here is the preview for the 174th Milan Derby in Serie A.  AC Milan and Inter dueling to win the Serie A Week 23 game on Sunday 21 February 2021 at the San Siro Stadium in Milan, Italy at 15:00.

Surely, it will be a thriller round because not only the bragging rights to rule in Milan is the motivation, but also because the victory will be for the first position in the Serie A.   Inter having 50 points and AC Milan 49 points.   AC Milan lost the leadership last week after losing the game against Spezia.  Inter took the leadership after defeating Lazio.   Stats showing Inter with 66 wins (including four in the last five matches), AC Milan with 52 wins, and 55 draws.

Milan can win both games in a single Serie A season against Inter for the second time in the last 15 years: previously they succeeded in 2010/11, 1-0 in the first leg and 3-0 in the return.
The previous occasion in which Milan and Inter met in Serie A and found themselves in the first two places in the standings was on 2 April 2011 (3-0 win for AC Milan season in which they won their last Scudetto).

Inter and AC Milan have collected a total of 99 points together in this league, 16 more than last season after 22 matches – at the same point in the tournament, the two teams only did better in 1950/51 (102 , considering three points per win from all time).
Milan have lost more Serie A matches in 2021 (three), compared to all of 2020 (two): the Rossoneri have recorded three knockouts in their last seven league games, as many as in the previous 41.

Inter have kept a clean sheet in their last two league away games: the last time they have not conceded a goal for three consecutive away games in a single Serie A season was in October 2012 (four in that case).

Inter are the fourth team in the last 60 seasons capable of scoring at least 54 goals after 22 Serie A matches this season, after Juventus 2013/14 (54), Lazio 2017/18 (57) and Atalanta 2019/20 (59).

AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma can become the youngest player to cross the finish line of 200 Serie A appearances in the era of three points to win: with 21 years and 361 days he would shatter the previous record set by Gianluigi Buffon (24 years, 83 days).

The big ex is forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic playing for Inter and Milan.  Ibrahimovic has scored 10 goals in the Milan Derby in all competitions – 8 of these have come with AC Milan: since his debut with this shirt in 2010/11 it is the Rossoneri who have scored the most goals against a single opponent.

Inter striker Romelu Lukaku may become the first player in the era of three points to win to score in four Milan derbies in a row in Serie A; in general, the last one to succeed was Romeo Benetti, between 1972 and 1973.

Inter forward Lautaro Martínez has scored 11 goals in Serie A this season, at least two more than any other second-highest scorer per team in the current tournament.

Italian Soccer Serie A

Hello, my friends. Here are the 2019-2020 Serie A Week 26 PREVIEW / Twenty-sixth Round on Saturday 29 February, Sunday 1, and Monday 2 March 2020.  This will be a surrealistic round.

The Lega Serie A confirmed the decisions taken by the Council of Ministers on playing 5 of the Serie A Week 26 behind closed doors.    The Minister of Sports Vincenzo Spadafora has confirmed the measure especially in the areas affected by the Coronavirus.  These are the games:

  • Udinese vs Fiorentina (Saturday 29 March 2020)
  • AC Milan vs Genoa (Sunday 1 March 2020)
  • Parma vs SPAL (Sunday 1 March 2020)
  • Sassuolo vs Brescia (Sunday 1 March 2020)
  • Juventus vs Inter (Sunday 1 March 2020)

👉 Up to Serie A Week 25: There is a three-way race between Juventus (60), Lazio (59), and Inter (54).

We might see a change in the leadership.  For the moment, Juventus is the sole leader reaching 60 points after defeating SPAL with a 2-1.  However, Lazio following closely with 59 points and is only -1 point below Juventus.  We cannot rule out Inter because they have a pending game to recover.  The big clash is Juventus vs Inter and if Juventus  defeat Inter, then, hello, hello, hello, the race for the Scudetto will become a two-way race between Juventus and Lazio.

⚽️ Serie A Top Scorer up to Week 25:
Lazio forward Ciro Immobile with 26 goals

Italian Soccer Serie A

Hello, my friends. Here are the 2019-2020 Serie A Week 25 PREVIEW / Twenty-fifth Round on Friday 21, Saturday 22, and Sunday 23 February 2020.

👉 Up to Serie A Week 24: There is a three-way race between Juventus (57), Lazio (56), and Inter (54)

This round is a thriller and we might see a change in the top 3 positions.  Juventus is the sole leader of the Serie A with 57 points after defeating Brescia with a 2-0 with at the Allianz Stadium.   Juventus can keep the first position if they defeat Brescia at the Paolo Mazza Stadium.   This is the duel between the 1st and last position.  SPAL is in the 20th position.  You bet, it would be a real joy for SPAL if they manage to defeat Juventus or even getting a draw.   In this game, Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo will play his 1,000 professional game.  Cristiano played his  first professional game in 2002 while playing for Sporting Lisbon in the match against Inter (CL qualification) when he was only 17.  Superb!

Last week, Lazio took away the second position after defeating Inter reaching 56 points being now only -1 point below Juventus. The defeat sent Inter down to the third position remaining with 54 points.   Lazio can keep the second position if they defeat Genoa at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium.  In case of losing, Inter will take back the second position if they defeat Sampdoria at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium.

⚽️ Serie A Top Scorer up to Week 24:
Lazio forward Ciro Immobile with 25 goals

Hello, my friends. Here are the 2019-2020 Serie A Week 23 PREVIEW / Twenty-third Round on Friday 7, Saturday 8, and Sunday 9 February 2020.

We might have a change in the leadership in this round.  Juventus  is currently the sole leader of the Serie A after defeating Fiorentina with a 3-0 at the Allianz Stadium reaching 54 points and a positive goal difference of +22.    Inter with 51 points might take the leadership if Juventus lose the game against Hellas Verona at the Marc’Antonio Bentegodi Stadium.  Inter will have to win the Derby della Madonnina against AC Milan at the San Siro Stadium.

Lazio with  50 points might take the 2nd position away from Inter if AC Milan win the Derby.  Lazio will have to defeat Parma at the Ennio Tardini Stadium.  Surely, this is a round not to miss.  On top of this, we have the debut of new coaches.  Brescia sacked Eugenio Corini and the new coach is Diego Lopez.    Brescia will play against Udinese at the Stadio Mario Rigamonti.

The other new coach is Moreno Longo replacing former coach Walter Mazzarri.   Longo will make his debut against Sampdoria at the Olimpico di Torino Stadium.

👉 Up to Serie A Week 22: There is a three-way race between Juventus (54), Inter (51), and Lazio (50)

⚽️ Serie A Top Scorer up to Week 22:
Lazio forward Ciro Immobile with 25 goals
