AC Milan will be hosting Inter Milan in the derby della Madonnina this afternoon for the top spot in Serie A for the first time in over a decade. This is an extremely big deal for Rossoneri fans who have had to endure a terrible era of mismanagement prior to this point. Milan will be going into the game without Ismael Bennacer and Mario Mandzukic but should otherwise have the full squad at their disposal. Milan will be looking for payback for the 2-1 loss in the derby in the Coppa Italia a few weeks ago where strikers Romelu Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic clashed. The winner of this game will go top and get a slight cushion as Inter currently sit in first with just a point advantage.

Expected Line Up (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma, Calabria, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Hernandez, Kessie, Tonali, Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Rebic, Ibrahimovic.
