Leaders Internazionale host rivals Milan for the latest version of the Milan derby on Saturday in one of the highlights of the domestic football calendar this week.

 

Internazionale are four points clear of second-placed Napoli at the top of the table with 15 matches to play. The Rossoneri are four points behind the Nerazzurri in third place, seven points clear of fifth-placed Juventus in the Champions League race.

 

Inter won their last Serie A match 2-1 at home against Venezia, extending their unbeaten streak to 14 (W11 D3 L0). Milan drew 0-0 against Juventus at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in their last league match.

 

The last Serie A edition of the Milan derby saw the sides play out a 1-1 draw at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in November. Hakan Calhanoglu scored the lone goal for the Nerazzurri in the 11th minute with a spot-kick. Milan's only goal came courtesy of the Nerazzurri's Stefan de Vrij putting the ball in his own net.

The attacking prowess of Lautaro Martínez and Edin Dzeko has made a difference for Inter this season. Martínez is the side's top scorer with 11 goals, which is the fourth highest in the competition in 2021/2022, three of which have been the tone-setting first of the match. Dzeko has been nearly as impressive with nine goals.

 

Milan's leading players in the final third have been Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Rafael Leão, who have netted eight and six times, respectively.

 

In 11 Serie A contests at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza this season, Inter are unbeaten with nine wins and two draws. With eight wins, two draws, and just one loss away from Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan boast a fine away record in league away matches this campaign. The Rossoneri will be out to extend a four-match away unbeaten streak (W3 D1 L0). They haven't been beaten away since November 2021 against Fiorentina.

 

In their last six league matches, Inter have won five and drawn one. Milan, meanwhile, have won three, drawn one and lost two in their last six.
