Milan and Inter Start Pulling Away from Their Rivals

Milan and Inter are on their first mini breakaway of the season. The Derby della Madonnina foes have gained separation following the recent results, putting four points between themselves and the closest rivals.

Per La Gazzetta dello Sport, the two sides have started much better than in 2022/2023, when Napoli began brilliantly and never looked back. The Nerazzurri have six more points, while Il Diavolo four. The Partenopei struggling early created some cushion. The two Rome-based sides are nowhere to be seen.

Milan and Inter lead the league jointly with 18 points each. Across Europe, the only other city that has done better collectively is Madrid, as Real and Atletico combine for 37 points. However, La Liga has had one more round than Serie A, so the average favors the two Italian outfits.

Depth and rotating might be pivotal in the duel. Simone Inzaghi didn’t do it versus Sassuolo, and his starters looked spent. However, they didn’t play well in the first half against Salernitana with a few reserves in the XI. Instead, Stefano Pioli has been more effective with his lineup choices.

Milan quickly bounced back from the beating Inter handed them in the Derby. They have prevailed six times in the first seven matches. They won the Scudetto in the only two other times it happened in their history, in 2003/2004 and 2021/2022, Sky informs.
