A super feisty Derby Della Madonnina is on the cards in the Supercopa final.

Last year's Serie A winner take on The Copa Italia winners from the preceding year, in a one game tournament, on the 18th of January.

AC Milan, are currently traversing a bumpy road in their season, as the Rossoneri have been in a poor form, ever since club football has resumed after the World Cup break. 

Currently second in Serie A, The Red and blacks from Milan are having a decent season, and have played some exceptional football this season. But the only concern for AC Milan and their fans, is the team's current form and moral, which can be a truly defining and important factor, when facing a strong opposition such as Inter Milan.

Inter Milan on the other hand, are in absolutely red hot form. The Nerazzurri are on an unbeaten run, dating back to 7th November 2022. The prime example as to just how dominant Inzaghi's men are currently, is their recent victory against the mighty Napoli, who were handed their first defeat of the season by Inter 

This contrasting form between both the teams, can prove to be a major difference maker in the grand finale, though one can never make a forehand decision, as anything is possible in a game of football.

Kick-off: 12.30am (IST, 19 January), 7:00 pm (GMT, 18 January)

AC Milan form (all competitions): D-L-D-W-L

Inter Milan form (all competitions): W-W-D-W-W

Players to watch

AC Milan

Rafael Leao

Widely termed as one of the biggest talents in World Football, Rafael Leao is already in the eyesight of some of the big money players of Europe. 

The Portuguese winger, is AC Milan's top goal scorer at the moment, and has been a constant threat in the wings throughout this season

Leao's performance in this game for Milan will be absolutely crucial, and can prove to be the point of difference between the two teams.

Inter Milan

Lautaro Martinez

The Argentine had a crafty World Cup campaign with his national team, as he won the World Cup despite not being Argentina's main number nine.

But a small setback, doesn't rule out the fact as to just how important Lautaro Martinez is for Inter Milan. Martinez's stats, are up there with some of the best attackers in the world, and he is surely someone who can make a difference in such an important game against Milan
