Milan v Inter, TIM Trophy Predictions
Our AC Milan v Inter prediction in this edition of the TIM Trofeo is for Milan to win. The logic behind our pick is related to the history of the encounters between the two sides showing that the Rossoneri have suffered a lot from the city rivals in recent years and it’s finally time for them to get back at Inter, even though it’s a just a friendly. Milan are now coached by Allegri who was in charge of Cagliari last season, but basically it’s the same OLD Milan with Seedorf, Ambrosini, Gattuso, Pirlo, Kaladze, Oddo.
Milan v Inter, TIM Trophy Predictions: Milan will be more motivated and the fact that the match is just 45 minutes gives them a better chance with the older squad they have. Football Betting Pick: Milan to Win!
