The two sides have a long-standing rivalry.

The bragging rights for Italian football is often decided by the heavily-anticipated Milan derby, which takes place at least twice a year in the Serie A calendar.

The derby between the two prominent Milanese clubs - Internazionale and A.C. Milan - has witnessed an epic rivalry in football heritage. As derbies are won purely on passion, the demand from the supporters is at an all-time high between these two sides. Interestingly, both Milan and Internazionale call San Siro their 'home'.
