With the away goals rule still in effect, the Nerazzurri are well aware of the importance that they strike first as the home side.
Three winless derbies marks Inter’s worst such run against AC Milan since 2005. Expect them to use those results as motivation against the Rossoneri.

Although these two sides have consistently been amongst the best in Italian football for years, it’s been an entire decade since either side have won the competition.
Inter Milan Betting Outlook
Inter’s last loss in any competition was to Sassuolo in Serie A action on February 20th. Since then, they’ve won five of nine matches, outscoring their opponents 14-3 with six clean sheets.
Scoring has come from all over the lineup with 17 different players having found goal in Serie A this season. Lautaro Martinez leads the team with 15 goals this season, and scored the deciding marker in a 3-1 win over Spezia in Inter’s last match.
17 – With Marcelo Brozovic, Inter have scored with 17 different players; the Nerazzurri have only done better in a single Serie A season in 2007/08 and 2019/20 (18). Cooperative.#SpeziaInter pic.twitter.com/mXz8tcinRw

Marcelo Brozovic has been arguably the best player for Inzaghi’s side this year. An absolute destroyer in the midfield, he opened his Serie A account with an absolute rocket on Friday.
AC Milan Locking Out Opponents
Stefano Pioli’s side have done a marvelous job keeping opposition striker’s at bay. Their run of seven consecutive clean sheets in all competitions actually started in the first leg of this semi-final, a 0-0 draw with Inter.
6 – Stefano Pioli is only the third manager in AC Milan history to keep a clean sheet in at least six games in a row in a single Serie A season, after Fabio Capello (twice in 1993/94: seven and nine) and Nereo Rocco (seven in 1971/72). Robustness.#MilanGenoa pic.twitter.com/sP9a3tlxzk

They have conceded only one goal in their three Coppa Italia matches so far. Incredibly they are top of the table in Serie A, although their top scorer, Rafael Leao, is only tied for 19th in the league in goals.
Although they are two points up on Inter in the league, the Nerazzurri do have a game in hand so they are battling in the Serie A odds with the title still very much up for grabs.

Dutch defender, Stefan De Vrij, came in late in the second half against Spezia after dealing with a minor injury, but is a candidate to be drafted back into the starting side in this crucial contest.

Inter Milan vs AC Milan Pick
Inter knocked out AC Milan in the quarterfinals of the Coppa Italia last year. Nevertheless, this tournament has not been kind to the Nerazzurri recently as they’ve been eliminated at this stage in each of their last four Coppa Italia semi-final ties. Will that difficult streak continue?
— AC Milan (@acmilan) April 16, 2022
What Inter do have going for them is almost a clean bill of health across the whole squad. While AC Milan has been in spectacular form of late, Inter will be amped up to make sure they get at least one victory over their city rivals this season.
Expect the run of clean sheets to stop here and Inter to advance to their first Coppa Italia final since 2011.
Pick: Inter Milan Moneyline (+106)
