Italian Serie A match preview – Inter Milan vs AC Milan. October 17, 2020 at 5pm BST time at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
The historic Derby della Madonnina takes place at San Siro this Saturday evening amid some of the most curious circumstances in its long and illustrious history.
This time, Inter Milan play ‘hosts’ at the famous old stadium they share with city rivals AC Milan, wracked by news of positive COVID-19 tests for several players – including ex-England winger Ashley Young.
Stefano Pioli’s resurgent Milan side, meanwhile, have started the domestic season with three straight wins against modest opposition to sit atop the early Serie A standings and have progressed through the early Europa League rounds – though only by the skin of their teeth against plucky Portuguese outfit Rio Ave.
