Serie A Preview: Genoa host Lazio as Milan clash with Inter

Football News Serie A Preview: Genoa host Lazio as Milan clash with Inter

The Derby della Madonnina, pitting AC Milan against Internazionale in one of European football’s most famous rivalries, will take centre stage in Round 33 of the 2023-24 Serie A season.

One of Serie A's most prestigious and eagerly-anticipated matches is the derby between AC Milan and Internazionale, which will be held at the iconic San Siro in the late kick-off on Monday night. While the Nerazzurri will lift the league trophy at the end of the season, the Rossoneri would love to claim bragging rights – and avenge a 5-1 defeat suffered at the hands of their cross-town rivals back in September.

“Inter are strong, that is not surprising. But the result was too heavy considering our performance,” said Milan manager Stefano Pioli, arguing that the result was harsh on his team. “Do you think we lost 5-1 to Inter on purpose and lose the derby? We are disappointed, just as the fans are. You should only apologise when you do something wrong on purpose.”

Inter manager Simone Inzaghi, meanwhile, wants his side to continue playing with “speed, aggression, and determination”. He added, “We will need to be extremely focused, and technically clean whilst trying to play our usual game.”

The action is spread across four days, starting on Friday night with heavyweights Lazio and Juventus taking on Genoa and Cagliari respectively. The Bianconeri have come through a tough spell of results in recent weeks, with former director Luciano Moggi arguing that the club is rallying around manager Massimiliano Allegri.

“Juventus have valorised Allegri's work. I am satisfied with what Juventus did, because they said that Allegri is valoring young people, who can form the basis of the team of the future,” said Moggi.

Saturday is headlined by Napoli’s trip to Empoli, while a busy Sunday will close with Atalanta looking to continue their form when they visit Monza at Stadio Brianteo. La Dea have demonstrated amazing togetherness and spirit, according to manager Gian Piero Gasperini.

“I have a homogeneous group, I rotate the players a lot but I always get good performances. This is a guarantee to be competitive,” said the silver-haired tactician.
