Inter Milan and AC Milan face off at the San Siro in Derby della Madonnina on Sunday, as Inter look to keep pace with Serie A leader Juventus.
AC are down in eighth place but are only behind sixth-placed Cagliari on goal difference in the race for Europe League football.
Antonio Conte’s side came out 2-0 winners the last time these two clubs faced off in Serie A, with goals from Marcelo Brozovic and Romelu Lukaku sealing the win.
However, AC have enjoyed their best run of the season in recent weeks and are unbeaten in the last seven matches in all competitions.

Inter will be without the injured Stefano Sensi, Samir Handanovic, Borja Valero and Roberto Gagliardini, while Tommaso Berni, Lautaro Martinez and Alessandro Bastoni are all suspended.
Danilo D’Ambrosio is being assessed day to day because of a thigh injury and Kwadwo Asamoah is a doubt with a knee problem.
AC are set to be without former Inter man Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the veteran Sweden striker picks up an ankle injury that could him out for a couple of weeks.
Leo Duarte has also been ruled out, while Simon Kjaer, Lucas Biglia, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Mateo Musacchio, Hakan Calhanoglu, Davide Calabria and Rade Krunic are doubts.
Inter vs AC Milan Prediction
Inter have been one of the outstanding sides in Serie A this season and still hold serious ambitions to win the title.
With their local rivals struggling for a few years now, Conte will expect to see his team come out on top.
However, AC have been resurgent in recent weeks and while the absence of Ibrahimovic is a blow, Stefano Pioli is started to get more of a tune out of his players.
Overall, Inter still have the edge given the big names their squad boasts, but expect AC to keep it close, with one goal likely to separate the two teams.
