Unbeaten AC Milan have a huge task on their hands to keep it that way when they host Inter in the Derby della Madonnina.

The Scudetto holders Milan are in sixth place with 8 points after a barren draw with Sassuolo last time out.

Inter on the other hand are coming off a 3-1 win against Cremonense and are in third, a point behind leaders Atalanta and Roma.

The hosts remain unbeaten in each of their last 20 league outings, picking up an impressive 13 wins in the process.

Milan have failed to win any of their last six Serie A clashes with Inter as ‘hosts’ at the Meazza, since a 3-0 victory in January 2016.

Inter have scored in each of their last 16 outings, giving this the potential to be a thrilling encounter.
