For just the fifth time in history, the Milan clubs will collide in a European fixture. The previous meetings have been positive experiences for AC Milan, as they are unbeaten in four. This is the first time that the local rivals have clashed in the Champions League since they battled in the semi-finals of the 2002-03 season, with Milan advancing on away goals.
Milan has an excellent home record in Champions League semi-final clashes at the San Siro, as they have lost just once in six. Their only defeat came against Barcelona in 2005-06, which was also the only goal that they had conceded in semi-finals at the San Siro. They have excelled defensively throughout the competition this season, as Milan has allowed just one in their previous six.
Inter Milan will have the important home advantage in the second leg between the sides. They have also dominated the previous meetings between the sides, as they have won each of the previous two. Inter has registered clean sheets in successive matches against Milan, with their most recent clash seeing Inter land a 1-0 win in Serie A.
However, AC Milan hasn’t lost three times against Inter in a single campaign since the mid-90s. But, Inter will come into this showdown with great confidence, as they have won their last four across all competitions, including a 2-0 away win against AS Roma in their previous league outing.
AC Milan vs Inter Milan Prediction
It will be an exciting week in Milan, with these two rivals battling for a spot in the Champions League final. However, we find it hard to ignore the dominance that Inter has achieved in previous showdowns against their rivals, meaning that the slight preference is for the away win.
