Inter Milan
The Nerazzurri had been going through an awful stretch which had seen them fail to win in seven straight matches. So, it was a huge relief when they picked up a much-needed 3-0 away win over Hellas Verona in league play last weekend.

Mauro Icardi got Inter off to a fast start by scoring in the 11th minute, and Rodrigo Palacio made it 2-0 shortly after the second half begun. The match was put out of reach in extra time following a Verona own goal, giving the Nerazzurri a win they had been searching needing for months. Inter's poor league form has seen the side fall dramatically in the standings - they're now in the 10th spot, one point behind this weekend's opponent and fierce rival, AC Milan.

Despite their troubles of late, Icardi continues to show why he's one of the brightest young talents in the world. He's scored 16 league goals in 28 appearances this term, 10 more than everyone else within Inter's squad. If the Nerazzurri are to get all three points this Sunday, another influential performance from the Argentinian striker.


AC Milan
Whereas Inter has been sputtering, the Rossoneri have actually been going through one of their most successful periods of this disappointing overall season.

Ahead of Sunday's encounter, AC Milan has picked up three wins and one draw over its last four matches overall, with the victories coming over Cagliari, Reggiana and Palermo and the deadlock coming at home against Sampdoria. As a result of the improved play, the Rossoneri have moved up in the Serie A standings, though they still find themselves quite a ways behind of the top four.

Still, there's reason for optimism around the Milan camp, and with the sheer name power that is associated with the club, it's not going to be long before they're back among the world's elite. This is a team that still has a lot of talent too, though it's Jeremy Menez that's been most impressive. The Frenchman, just like Icardi mentioned above, has found the back of the net 16 times in league play - can he make his presence felt again this weekend?


Serie A Pick
The Rossoneri might be the considerable underdogs for this derby, but their recent form has been quite a bit better, and that's making us think there's value to be had here.

AC Milan has gone unbeaten in four straight matches across all competitions, and as a result they've moved up to ninth place in the Serie A. That's still a poor showing overall considering how big of a name the Rossoneri are, but it's comforting, when considering backing them with our sports picks, to see they've elevated their play recently.

With our soccer picks this weekend, we're looking to back AC Milan to get at least a point out of this fixture. It's going to take a very determined and disciplined effort for the entire 90 minutes, but we're putting our faith in the Red and Blacks to make things interesting.
