Inter Milan already have one foot in the CL final. Two goals in the first 11 minutes from Edin Dzeko and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were enough for the Nerazzurri (The Black and Blues) to see off their old rivals at the famous San Siro stadium. This fifth (and final) Milan derby of the season is a golden opportunity for Inter to get the job done and progress to their first CL final in more than a decade. 

However, AC Milan are not out of this contest quite yet. The Rossoneri (The Red and Blacks) took a battering in the first leg, but a 2-0 scoreline is not insurmountable. However, AC Milan will have to stage a dramatic comeback without the backing of their passionate home crowd, as the San Siro will be decked out in Inter colors for this Champions League semi-final. 

The away side will not be comforted by Inter’s strong record in European's premiere tournament this season either. Inter have kept four clean sheets in five knockout games, and have yet to fall behind in any of them. The side’s contrasting league form also makes grim reading for AC Milan, they now lag behind their local rivals by five points in the Serie A table. Although neither team will be securing Itay’s highest domestic honor this season as Napoli have already won the title by some margin. 

All signs certainly point to Inter Milan facing the winner of Man City vs Real Madrid in Istanbul next month, but soccer isn’t always predictable. And because AC Milan needs a remarkable result to salvage what has otherwise been a disappointing campaign and they will surely attack from the very first whistle. 

Inter Milan are finding form at just the right time with seven straight wins in all competitions, while AC Milan are in danger of ending their season with a whimper, but in a local derby, form is irrelevant. Make sure you don’t miss the Inter Milan vs AC Milan live stream to see how this Champions League semi-final tie concludes.
