Gallery: ‘A packed derby’, ‘Derby of giants’ – Today’s front pages of Italian papers

By Isak Möller -

The day of the Derby Della Madonnina is here. At 20:45 this evening, AC Milan and Inter will face off at San Siro in front of 57K fans. It should be a very exciting game, with both sides in good form. 

Obviously, regardless of the standings, the derby is always special but it has a bit of extra spice given the teams’ respective position currently. Milan, for example, could go ten points clear of Inter with a win tonight.

On their front page, Gazzetta Dello Sport wrote the following about the game: “A packed derby. The fans are back and the clash is valid for the Scudetto. Ibra and Dzeko are the most anticipated protagonists.”

Tuttosport wrote this about the game: “The derby of the giants. “Milan-Inter is also the long-distance challenge between Ibrahimovic and Dzeko”. Corriere Dello Sport followed with this: “The derby that decides who runs for the Scudetto. Milan at +7 over Inter: tonight they can cut them off”.
