Fabio Capello: “Not A Real Milan Derby Between AC Milan & Inter Without Fans”

Inter’s crucial game against AC Milan on Sunday cannot be considered a real Milan derby without supporters, according to the Rossoneri’s former coach Fabio Capello.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, clubs have had to play games behind closed doors for almost a full year and Sunday’s match at San Siro will be no different.

Capello thinks the empty stadium will inevitably detract from the entertainment value of this weekend’s big match.

Speaking to Radio 24 on their daily program Tutti Convocati today, Capello remarked: “Without fans it isn’t a derby.

“What kind of derby is it when you are sitting watching from home on TV?

“There is enormous pressure because they are playing for the Scudetto, it will be a good match.”

Sunday’s match will be the third time that Inter and AC Milan face off this season, with both having won one match apiece so far.

The Nerazzurri are one point clear of Stefano Pioli’s side heading into the game, with their former defender Andrea Mandorlini arguing it is critical they extend the gap on Sunday.

Conte is expected to name an unchanged XI following last Sunday’s win over Lazio, with Christian Eriksen favourite ahead of Arturo Vidal to start in midfield.

AC Milan’s former midfielder Roberto Donadoni warned both sides today that neither can afford to lose this weekend.
