Giornata 21 Preview Milan Derby Revenge

Posted by Scot Munroe Friday, January 22, 2022

AC Milan is hoping for revenge in this weedend's Derby della Madonnina after the embarassing defeat at the San Siro in round 2 of the season. This Sunday's game gives them a perfect chance to exile the demons which happened on that first meeting.

Milan are coming into the game in brilliant form and using the very attack minded 4-2-1-3 formation, utilized since the Real Madrid game in the Champions League and have not looked back since. AC Milan have dazzled under Leonardo since the Christmas break beating Genoa, Juventus, and Siena on 12 goals scored and just 2 conceded. With the transfer window not open Milan have bolstered their attack in re-signing David Beckham on loan from LA Galaxy.

Inter's Muntari and Milan's Beckham don't see eye to eyeOn the other side of Milan, Jose Mourinho's Inter side are struggling and grinding out results with the wins away at Chievo and thanks to Walter Samuel late goal to beat Siena. But at the weekend Inter struggled away to Bari, coming back from 2-0 down to gain a point. Something is clearing not clicking with the way Inter are playing added to this is the attitude problem of Mario Balotelli which is clearly not helping with his team-mates and management. With Samuel Eto'o at the ACN with Cameroon you can see that Inter are struggling up front and Mourinho has ditched the trident 4-3-1-2 formation, switching to his favoured Chelsea formation of 4-3-3 with Quaresma and Pandev both supporting Milito up front.

In the last couple of seasons final results of the Derby della Madonnina go to the home side but the result in the 2nd week of the season with the away win has bucked the trend. With AC Milan playing a free-flowing attack minded football against the cautious defensive approach by Inter. I can see this being a great game tactically for both managers and also good on the eye. I am tipping the Rossoneri of Milan to come out victorious and to close the gap to 3 points with scudetto leaders Inter.

  2. This derby would be very different had Milan come out strong in the first 3 weeks of the season.
    It will be tough for Milan to gain points in the final weeks of the season making this game that much more important. If Milan are to capture the Scudetto a win is a must.

    Well the Rossoneri if they gain the upper-hand in this classico will potentially draw even with the leaders, as the boy's in Red and Black have a game in hand.
