AC Milan vs Inter – Inter to end long wait to go top

| 02.04.2011

Inter Milan have made giant strides up the Serie A table since the appointment of Leonardo and 13/8 looks a fine price that they can top the standings for the first time since September by beating rivals AC Milan.

Match Odds

Some 12 wins in 15 league games under Leonardo have taken Inter to within two points of their neighbours, while they have also scored more goals than any other team in Serie A this season.

Meanwhile, their chances of an away win at their home ground will be further boosted by the news that AC Milan will be without top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who will miss the game through suspension.

Inter have their own suspension problems with key defender Lucio ruled out of the derby and this will give Milan confidence.

Milan have taken 11 points less than Inter since Leonardo’s arrival, although they have played two games less.

Despite being top of the league, Milan are the outsiders to win at home at 15/8 in the Serie A betting and as good as Inter are in attack, they are in defence, shipping just 22 goals this season and five in the last 11 games.

The draw can be backed at 2/1, although none of the last 12 derbies have ended all square.

Correct Scoreline

Given the defensive record that Milan boast, the game is likely to be tight.

Milan have claimed four of their last five wins over Inter 1-0 and it is 6/1 that they triumph by this scoreline again.

Inter are 5/1 to win 1-0 and this may be the most likely scoreline.

Another betting opportunity worth considering is the 7/4 that a player is sent off in the fixture, with six red cards shown in the last five derbies.

A £20 stake on the scorecast of Inter beating Milan 1-0 and Samuel Eto’o scoring the only goal would return £400. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of free bets totalling up to £60.
