Milan Derby: Date, history, players, odds & more

The Milan Derby is the world famous derby played between the two huge football clubs based in the Italian city of Milan - AC Milan and Inter.

The latest instalment of the Milan Derby is set to take place on Saturday at the iconic Stadio Giuseppe Meazza - more commonly known as the San Siro - the stadium that both clubs share.

Here is all you need to know about one of the world's biggest derbies between two of the most famous and successful clubs in Italian football.

Who competes in the Milan Derby?

The two main professional football clubs in the city - AC Milan and Inter Milan - compete in the Milan derby, which is also known as Derby della Madonnina.

It is called Derby della Madonnina in honour of one of the most popular sights in Milan, the statue of the Virgin Mary on the top of the Duomo.

Who has the best Milan Derby record?

Inter Milan, or Internazionale to give them their full title, have the better overall record in official derby matches, winning 89. 

AC Milan, who are commonly referred to as just Milan, have 79 victories in the derby, while there have been 69 draws.

When was the first match between the two sides?

The first derby match between the two rivals came in the final of the Chiasso Cup on 18th October 1908, which AC Milan won 2-1. 

The Chiasso Cup was a tournament played in Canton Ticino, Switzerland and was staged seven months after Internazaionale was formed following a breakaway from AC Milan after disagreements arose over the signing of foreign players.

When was the last match between the two sides?

The two Milan giants last met in the Champions League semi-final second leg last season - a game Inter won 1-0 thanks to Lautaro Martinez's goal.

That victory gave the Nerazzurri a 3-0 aggregate win in the last four of Europe's biggest club competition after they had won the first leg 2-0 and sent them through to the final against Manchester City, which they went on to lose 1-0.

The last Serie A meeting also ended 1-0 in Inter's favour in February when again Martinez was the matchwinner.

Who is the top scorer in the derby clash?

Andriy Shevchenko has scored the most goals in Milan derbies with the AC Milan striker notching 14 in total against Inter.

The Ukrainian star sits one ahead of Giuseppe Meazza - the player whose name is attached to the San Siro Stadium - after he scored 13 goals in the Milan derby, 12 for Inter and one for Milan, having played for both clubs between 1927 and 1947.

Who are the managers of the two teams?

Stefano Pioli is the AC Milan boss and has been in charge of the Rossoneri since October 2019.

The 57-year-old guided Milan to their first Scudetto triumph since 2011 in the 2021-22 Serie A season and has an impressive 56% winning percentage while in charge of the club, picking up 107 victories from 191 games.

Simone Inzaghi is the Inter manager, having been appointed to the role in May 2021.

Inzaghi has won back-to-back Coppa Italias and Supercoppa Italianas while in charge of Inter and led them all the way to the Champions League final last season, when they narrowly lost 1-0 to Manchester City.
