MILAN - It’s time for the #DerbyMilano! At 20:30 CET on Sunday, the Meazza will be the venue as AC Milan and Inter face off in the 170th edition of the Milan derby and we take a look back at the fixture with these statistics in collaboration with Opta.
There have been 169 editions of the #DerbyMilano so far in the Serie A. Inter are ahead with 63 wins, compared to 51 for the Rossoneri who haven’t won a derby since January 2016. March has historically been the month for derbies with 40 of them taking place in the third month of the year, the Nerazzurri winning 16 and drawing 12. Milan will be the home side for the 85th time on Sunday. Again, the record here favours the Nerazzurri who have won 28 and drawn 25 as the away side.
Inter won 1-0 in the previous meeting and will look to do the double in this second game. The Nerazzurri haven’t won both derbies since the 2011-12 season (0-1 in the first game, 4-2 in the second). The most common scoreline is 1-1 (26 times) and the last 1-1 draw came on November 2014.
38 per cent of Inter’s goals (15 of 40) have come in the final 15 minutes of games, including one in the last league game and one in the previous derby and that’s the highest percentage in Serie A.
Inter and Milan are two of the three sides who have conceded the fewest goals in the first halves of Serie A matches this season (seven against, level with Juventus).
No team has conceded fewer goals from open play this season than Inter this season (13). On the other hand, no team has conceded fewer than Milan from dead balls (four).
Milan and Inter are the two teams this season who have earned the most points thanks to goals scored in and after the 90th minute (six for both).
Inter have the highest possession in Serie A (58.7%) and the Nerazzurri are also the side who have won the ball back the most in the final third (162).
