AC Milan vs. Inter Milan: Preview, TV schedule and how to watch online

Claudio Villa

There may be not much but pride at stake in Sunday's Milan derby, but it sure is a lot of pride.

Neither AC Milan nor Inter Milan have enjoyed particularly impressive seasons, with the former still down in 10th place and the latter fifth heading into Sunday's Milan derby. However, there's still a chance that the rossoneri could make a late dash to join their cross-town rivals in the Europa League -- they're just a point adrift of sixth.

That means they still have something other than simple Milanese pride to play for, while Inter look almost guaranteed their fifth-placed finish. AC Milan will also look to reclaim bragging rights they haven't had since their last Derby della Madonnina win back in 2011. When these sides met earlier in the season, Rodrigo Palacio's 86th winner saw them beaten again.

Clarence Seedorf is unable to select both Valter Birsa and Riccardo Saponara through injury, though neither absentee will cause him any concern. Inter will be rather more upset to be without injured centre-back Juan Jesus, who's one of their most promising young players.
