Serie A's Match Day 26 has many top of the line matchups, but all eyes will be on the Derby della Madonnina early Monday morning. In the past, the Milan derby had huge implications in the race for the Scudetto; this year it might determine a top four finish. This was supposed to be the year where both Milan teams had their breakthrough; however, they have both struggled with poor form at times. At the moment, it is Inter who head into this match with subpar perfomances, while AC Milan seem to be firing on all cylinders.

Yes, Inter beat Benevento 2-0 last week. But is defeating the club in last place really a reason to beat your chest in prideful manner? Those three points did put the Nerazzurri back in the top four, but it doesn't mean they are back to playing their best football. Not too long ago--in December, in fact--Inter were top of the table. Two months later, they find themselves 18 points behind Napoli and struggling to hold a place in the Champions League qualification spots.

AC Milan seem to be enjoying the opposite of Inter Milan's fortunes. After starting the year off poorly, they have strung together an impressive 13 match unbeaten run. Gennaro Gattuso has managed to fix the Rossoneri's form. They will have confidence heading into this match, as they eliminated Inter in the quarterfinals of the Coppa Italia in December and have advanced to the final of said tournament after defeating Lazio in penalty kicks in midweek.

Gattuso has rallied his troops and has them playing impressive football. Inter have been underwhelming recently. Milan will be painted red and black after this match.

Prediction: AC Milan 2-0 Inter Milan


All matches in Italian football today have been postponed due to the death of Fiorentina captain Davide Astori.
